New to QBittorrent

Post by Jerseyguy57 »

Hi all,

New to using qBittorrent. I have everything forwarded and set up but one of my sites says I am firewalled. No problem downloading at all and when I checked, everything looks set up right. Not sure what's up. ???

Sorry about that. I'm running Windows 10 Home Version 21H1. qBittorrent 4.3.5. A Sagecom Fast 5260 Router(Spectrum) with port forwarded between 5000-6000. Inbound rules allowed through the firewall.

may you test with port range above 50000 and give us the result of the external port check (url in the other topic)?

I tried one in the 53000 range and it came back as port not seen or closed.

Well, there is your answer. Your ports are not forwarded properly.

It seems the root cause I agree
Did you set a fix IP on the computer hosting QBT and reuse this IP in the port forwarding section of the router?

I know it is on the router. Not sure how to on the computer though.
