Re: qBittorrent v4.3.3 is re-downloading finished torrents

If it's an external drive, it's likely you removed the drive while qBittorrent was running. Or when the PC started, the external drive was not yet mounted. It can happen with external drives sadly.

Re: Unable to seed, all torrents show up as 'stalled uploading'

however ONLY when I am using a proxy, OR if I'm just on a vpn in general. I haven't found any indication that my VPN/Proxy provider can't work with p2p networks like this (they clearly support p2p use), so I have to think it's a problem internal to qBittorent. Proxy/VPN renders you passive. There a...

Re: WebUI Help

- Could you take a screenshot of this error? (make sure to cover any sensitive details)
- Could you link us what type of "alt UI" are you trying to install?

Thank you.

Re: Main client connecting to qbittorrent-nox

You cannot connect the client to a remote -nox/webUI like with transmission.
qBittorrent can either run with -nox (no GUI, webUI only), or the GUI version (which can also enable/run/host the webUI).

Re: Suspicious DNS Queries

Could be tracker connections? I mean, if you try and just open qBittorrent without any torrent running/being active, I don't think it'll make any such connections.

Re: Errored to resume download

Click Trackers on the bottom, see what that says.
Enable Execution Log in the top bar, see what the Log says.

It's not an error in the file I think - torrent can recheck files - it's a (great) feature of it.

Re: Srt subtitles files does not download

Interesting. What do you see if you select such a torrent, then click Files on the bottom?
What does it say at the .srt file?

Re: Blocklist

In the client, Options -> Connection and at bottom: "IP Filtering". Keep in mind, IP blockers/filters just hurt speeds, swarms, peers, trackers. It's never ever been useful. Please don't use them. If you live in a strict anti-p2p country, please use a VPN (with port forwarding.) If you can...

Re: Share Ratio

It doesn't matter. Share ratio only matters on private trackers. But even there, the website tells you your current ratio, the ratio you achieved on torrents, and whatnot. The site rules also tell you what ratio you need to maintain in order to remain a member of the site/community. So generally spe...

Re: Docker downgrade to 4.2.5 not working

Well I don't use qBittorrent in Docker, but I suppose you need to do a "docker-compose pull" (in the folder where you have the .yaml file) once you change the config file/images in the file.

Re: Qbittorrent: Private vs Public Trackers

For private trackers, it's always the same. - The best solution is to use a seed server (to seed, maintain ratio/buffer). Since most users use a seed server on those sites, it's hard to compete with those. - If you wish to use a VPN, make sure to choose a provider that supports port forward. And mak...
