qbittorrent-nox webserver unavailable with VPN (Wireguard)

Post by raglin6 » Thu May 07, 2020 6:07 pm

I am using Ubuntu minimal install for a server, so I am using qbittorrent-nox at the command line. It works fine after install. However, once I enable Wireguard VPN (wg-quick up wg1), I can no longer access my web interface at 192.168.x.x:xxxx. When I disable Wireguard (wg-quick down wg1) it works again. I don't think it is a Wireguard issue since everything else works fine, I get internet connectivity and I can access the server locally.

Is there some special setting or configuration I need to use to get qbittorrent-nox to work with Wireguard VPN?

Thanks.

You either need to route lan traffic on the webif port to the correct lan ip, or you need to open the webif port in your VPN settings and connect to it using whatever VPN exit ip you got assigned.
