"Use proxy for peer connections" doesn't proxify peer connections #11211
qBittorrent version and Operating System
4.1.7, openSUSE Leap 15
If on linux, libtorrent-rasterbar and Qt version
What is the problem
"Use proxy for peer connections" doesn't proxify peer connections.
What is the expected behavior
It should do what it says.
Steps to reproduce
Actual direct (not proxified) connections to peers are visible, matching the same IP addresses of the seeders and leechers which can be seen in QBT.
Extra info(if any)
Connections to tracker work (through Tor).
"Disable connections not supported by proxies" stops any and all connections (0 B/s). I don't know if this is normal and how to set it correctly in order to fully torify everything. If possible please explain.
Are those connections over UDP? If yes then it is expected and explained in the above links.
Could be related to this probably libtorrent related bug:
http://dev.deluge-torrent.org/ticket/2149 deluge ignoring proxy settings
Seems you have the same symptom as #7734 and there are some discussion going on there currently.
Only in the part relating to the "Extra info" (2nd paragraph) in the OP. I don't have the [general] symptom of "No connections when using a Socks5 proxy server" listed in that other issue. As I explained: there *are* connections to tracker (proxified) and to peers (not proxified) as long as "Disable connections not supported by proxies" is off. In short: it looks related but not "the same" as the that other issue.
