No upload activity embedded tracker #10138
qBittorrent version and Operating System
v4.1.5 Windows 10
What is the problem
If using embedded traker no upload activity
What is the expected behavior
Steps to reproduce
Create a torrent using the qbittorent tool.
Extra info(if any)
The port is open and I checked with http://www.canyouseeme.org
The embedded tracker probably "sees" your qBitTorrent as running at its LAN ip address, not its internet ip address which is what others need to connect to it.
If the torrent is flagged private, then DHT, PEX, LSD cannot run and find+link together peers+seeds.
It is possible to manually add a peer in the peers window by right-clicking, Add a Peer. -- BUT the peer must not be firewalled or it's nearly guaranteed to fail. I regularly do this in my testing.
Which is the problem I described. Other peers/seeds on the internet can connect to the tracker but the tracker hands out your your seed's LAN ip address not its internet ip address...so they cannot connect to your seed's LAN ip address.
Your "LAN only" seed might still eventually get the other peers'/seeds' internet address from the embedded tracker (after a tracker update) and try to connect to them.
There is a fix coming for a similar problem, but the internal tracker seeing the local peer/seed as a LAN ip only may not be fixed at the same time.
The internal tracker may have seemed to work in a previous version because some/most/all of the peers/seeds may have not been firewalled.
