Title: seeds shown connected, stalled.
Post by: cocokola on March 18, 2019, 03:53:07 pm
Referencing advice from: https://qbforums.shiki.hu/index.php/topic,5692.0.html (https://qbforums.shiki.hu/index.php/topic,5692.0.html) to download v3.3.16.  Machine A has v4.1.5, machine B 3.3.16

A:  torrent shows connected to 2 of 79 peers,  the trackers tab shows 0 or NA seeds, 12,11,7,10 or seeds depending on the tracker.
B: torrent shows 0/0 ,  trackers tab shows 0 seeds, 11 peers across the board.

Does this indicate a bug or what is next?

Unless qBitTorrent is actually connecting/connected to seeds in the Peers tab...
And if DHT+PEX (which only works on public torrents) can't find and connect to seeds...
The seeds are no longer sharing the torrent.

Some trackers may be "remembering" seeds that were on the torrent in the past and claiming those seeds are still there.

The only other thing you might want to try is a different BitTorrent client to rule out qBitTorrent being at fault.
