AirVPN + qBitTorrent Web UI from outside network

Recommended Posts

Hi

I have setup qbitttorrent web UI and it seems to work when I type in the computer IP address in the browser. The problem is that I would like to use it from outside network as well.

I suppose that I would need to do some port forwarding in AirVPN and set up DDNS ?
Can anyone explain to me how to do that as I am a total noob when it comes to networking 😅

Yes, but DDNS is not a necessity. It helps tremendously reaching the host, though.

There are two ways:
  1. Forward a random port. In the Local port field, enter 8080.
  2. Forward a random port, but leave Local port field empty. Look at what port you got assigned, then configure the qBittorrent WebUI to use this port.
In all cases:
  • In qBittorrent settings > Advanced, check if qBittorrent binds to the tunnel adapter (TAP-Windows on Windows, utun0 on macOS, tun0 on Linux). If it's not visible, especially on macOS and Linux, connect to AirVPN first.
  • In DDNS, enter the name you want to reach it with. If the name is myname, the WebUI will then be reachable on myname.airdns.org:#####, ##### being the remote port.

Okay so I have forwarded the port and set the DDNS name while doing that. But what next ? How do I set up the Web UI tab ?
Thank you

I will assume you went with way 2, so in qB settings > Web UI, set the port to the remote port you just got assigned.

No I went to port forwarding on this website, and assigned random port to 8809, and put a name in DDNS field, that's all I did.

Yes, this is the first part of way 2. Now go to qB's settings, go to the Web UI tab and enter 8809 in the port field.

I am sorry I meant port 8080, which is qB's default in the Web UI tab.
Now the question is what do I put in the IP address field ? My computers IP ?

Ah okay, then it's the other way. In this case, everything in qB should remain at its default. IP is an asterisk *, port is 8080.

Is the port open?

$ ss -tuln
$ nc -zv 127.0.0.1 8080

Is it even reachable from the outside? (Execute with another Linux machine):

$ dig a in torrentos.airdns.org +short | nc -zv - 49948

.
