Torrent Address Detection NOT working?

Recommended Posts

I use BitTorrent.  When I add the magnet link and start the download, I get  "connection closed by peer" in the trackers panel, and my IP address doesn't appear in the Torrent Address detection section.
I didn't used to get this result before (last year?) I hadn't used Bittorrent for a while.
What am I doing wrong? Does it by chance have something to do with enabling ipv6?

The BitTorrent client, or some other BitTorrent client like Transmission, qBittorrent, Deluge, etc.?

Could be. qBittorrent for example currently has a bug: If you enable IPv6 and have bound qBittorrent explicitly to any interface, the client cannot connect anywhere, neither to trackers nor to peers. Maybe other clients also have difficulties with IPv6. Can you try disabling it?

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.

Thanks for the reply, Giganerd.

I am using The BitTorrent client. Torrent Address Detection used to work fine when I last used BitTorrent about 6 months ago. The BitTorrent client on my Mac wasn't changed since then.
I have no problems downloading any torrents using this BitTorrent. Only, when I start the Address Detection magnet I get "Connection closed by peer" for the tracker status. 
What does that mean?  (IPv6 is Off in my network setting, and ipleak.net says "IPv6 test not reachable".)

I'm using BitTorrent version 7.4.3. (On an aside, the client says 7.8.0 is available. But their website has No mention of it!)

I tried the Transmission client. The Address Detection works fine!  Maybe now I'll try updating BitTorrent to 7.8.0. - or uTorrent.
