Web UI shows downloads as "stalled" after docker installation

Post by annabaker » Wed Jan 15, 2020 2:23 am

I installed qbittorrent via a docker container using the following command:

sudo docker create \
--name=qbittorrent \
-e PUID=1000 \
-e PGID=1000 \
-e TZ=Europe/London \
-e UMASK_SET=022 \
-e WEBUI_PORT=8080 \
-p 6881:6881 \
-p 6881:6881/udp \
-p 8080:8080 \
-v /opt/appdata/qbittorrent:/config \
-v /home/fritz/Downloads:/downloads \
--restart unless-stopped \
linuxserver/qbittorrent

I added a torrent using a magnet link, and the download shows as "stalled." Are there additional configurations I need to do to get this up and running from within a container?

Well, this container expects a port forward of 6881 and since it's a container I don't think it can use UPnP to forward. So you have to open that port / forward that port. And then it'll work just fine.

Keep in mind Docker doesn't give a .. flip about "ufw" for example, so that won't be the issue.
