Re: Feature Request: Download a chosen range of packets (PLEASE!)

entirely possible the ISP charges much more for it's higher data quota tiers than the cost of four separate plans I'd say it is very unlikely because otherwise is against the base principle of economy - when you buy more you get a better price. The similar reason stands against the floppynet transp...

Re: Feature Request: Download a chosen range of packets (PLEASE!)

Subham is NOT talking about torrent clients in a LAN setting with a shared WAN. I didn't talk about that as well. I talked about Subham and all of his friends using their own dedicated WAN links. Presumed there are 4 friends and quota is 1GiB they all get up to 4GiB each (breakdown: 1GiB from WAN p...

Re: qBittorent Privacy Focused Guideline

Well, it is really too broad topic and it applies to bittorrent protocol in general, so you can read any non client specific privacy guideline thoroughly and then ask how to implement a specific counter-measure. Remember, when bittorrent protocol was designed nobody cared about privacy at all. There...

Re: Every time I turn on my qBitorrent my modem resets

Since that is unlikely what you have modem in 2020, I'd suspect UPnP issue, try to disable it.

Select just "added" torrent even it is duplicate

Hello! Please make qB to select the torrent of interest which just was added (even thru file or link) even it is already in qB's list. Currently qB just presents a message box about duplication and announcer merging (with name, thankfully) and user have to locate given torrent manually. It would be ...

Re: VPN disconnect/reconnect

Yes, this is supported natively. Check out "Network interface" pref in the "Advanced" section, it should do the job.

Re: Feature Request: Download a chosen range of packets (PLEASE!)

Isn't this feature in the baseline protocol already? As long as you don't request parts in sequential order, client will negotiate random parts so the WAN burden is already shared among LAN clients (presumed you are preferring LAN peers over WAN peers by not limiting "local" bandwidth). But I must s...

Re: Why there's a "cookie" feature in bittorrent?

Someone should investigate the way qB accepts cookies and stores them indeed. I also found several questionable cookies there. Generally I don't see any reason to accept the cookies from HTTP based announcers since there are peer_id to identify the client for peer information purposes and passkey is...

Re: Utorrent spoofing removed?

thanks to the removal of spoofing Actually, thanks to the users who advocated for qB when devs sided with private trackers' operators. Personally I did so twice with 50% overall success. Not like I'm demanding a gratitude for asking not very friendly people to unban qB, but it would be nice to have...

qB can not do selective downloads?

When I try to do a selective downloading of this multi-file torrent: magnet:?xt=urn:btih:d1f38f427098d93968bde99fba17c9a4d7fcc723 I have no idea what happens but when I choose all files in (for example) 25xx "subdir", qB will transfer up to approximately 50..75% of data and then choke with bogus "pa...

How to switch back to old .unwanted storage scheme for partial files?

Hello! I'd like to try an old way to stored partial files - an .unwanted dir within torrent file tree. The idea to store boundary chunks in the single file, but I certainly don't like the idea to store it outside the torrent's "root" as rather obscure .$(infohash).parts file. Also, I suspect this ch...
