Re: Asustor NAS, how to setup qBittorrent and VPN

If the config file was for OpenVPN, make sure you started the daemon.

Thanks, I think that this is only true for the time when the torrent is newly seeded
That's not very likely, the risk is at the other end of the torrent's life when there are few seeds.

Re: What is sequential downloading?

It isn't a specific mode, it just a matter of the order in which your client requests pieces from other clients.

It can slow down the torrent overall and increase the risk of a torrent going incomplete if too many peers do it simultaneously.

Re: QBittorrent & VPN Deal

- Make sure it has port forward capability. You can ask their support, or find that out on their website. Or try it without - port-forwarding is much less important than it used to be. What I would advise is a shared IP address (which is actually a feature of cheap VPNs). Without this it's possible...

Re: Please return "Content layout" to being a check box instead of a dropdown menu

I'm seeing three options (including "original") in v4.6.4 (64-bit) on FreeBSD. Are you looking at a later version?

Re: Slight change to main-window layout...

I guess the speed is separate because it's global and the other tabs are properties of the selected torrent.

If you put everything on one line there wouldn't be enough room on smaller screens or windows.

You do have working trackers in the image. It's not unusual to have some of the trackers not working.

Re: QBittorrent & VPN Deal

One thing, if you can't use their software and the killswitch feature, set QB to only use the network device that is created for the VPN, tun0 in my case. That way if the VPN goes down, QB stops traffic as it loses its connection to the internet, as far as it can see anyway. I'm paranoid enough tha...

I'm not sure I'm following you. Why can't you do that through "Set Location"?

i am not using a VPN - but am not downloading anything sensitive
I doubt that, since you are trying to search using plugins for sites that are almost 100% sensitive content. Sensitive is (practically all) films, TV, porn and music.

Re: Problem downloading torrent files

Lack of port forwarding will affect only a tiny minority of cases, it's very unlikely to be the cause of a systematic problem.

Re: Out of space

I recently changed Preferences->Downloads->"Default Save Path" and nothing moved - it just applied to new torrents. This was on FreeBSD though.

Re: Connection issues on fresh install

It seems very unlikely that failed searches have anything to do with port forwarding.

Re: Cleaning torrents based on plenty of other seeders

My understanding is that 5(9) would mean that you are connected to 5 and that a total of 9 has been reported by trackers and DHT. I just keep the ones that I think deserve preserving. I also take account of how likely it is that there will be an alternative torrent. The problem with using the number...
