ANSWERED unable to bittorrent download ubuntu

Recommended Posts

can anyone download ubuntu using airvpn with having the appropriate ports forwarded ? https://ubuntu.com/download/alternative-downloads#bittorrents
i do and bittorrent says forwarding is working with a green light .   i have another provider setup on the same pfsense router, using different forwarded ports.  and i can.

ALL downloads from http://torrent.ubuntu.com:6969/announce     are not downloading.

any suggestions or help is appreciated

Depends on which server you are connected to. On Dubhe currently it seems to work.


Four simple things:
There's a guide to AirVPN. Before you ask questions, take 30 minutes of your time to go through it.

Amazon IPs are not dangerous here. It's the fallback DNS.
Running TOR exits is discouraged. They're subject to restrictions on the internet and harm all AirVPN users.

Furthermore, I propose that your paranoia is to be destroyed. If you overdo privacy, you'll be unique among the mass again.

And what exactly are these? They somehow look like OpenVPN directives put in your words but I'm not sure :D

Looks like pfsense openvpn directives.  They really have nothing to do with being unable to torrent. 

If the VPN works properly with other activities then there's surely just something wrong with your torrent client setup.  Even if port forwarding isn't setup properly you should still be able to download.

i tried qtorrent this morning and it appears my macmini(yes the issue is on a mac) has gone offline entirely.  i logged into my airvpn account and disconnected my tunnel and it reconnected automatically.  so my macmini may have died finally after 10 years of non stop use.

i'll know more when i am at home Wednesday evening.

the files download immediately with another bittorent client.    i had no idea that was even a possibility of the issue
qbittorrent 4.16 on my mac mini resolved this

I suspected a client issue, that's why I asked.

Enjoy. :)
