qBittorrent version and Operating System

qBittorrent v4.1.9
libtorrent-rasterbar 1:1.1.13-4
Arch Linux ARM

What is the problem

Cannot add a torrent from the result of search engines via the WebUI.

What is the expected behavior

The torrent should be added in the "Download queue".

Steps to reproduce

Fresh install. Log in to the WebUI. (If needed, update the search engines.) Search for a torrent. Try to add it.

Extra info

The log file says
- Downloading '', please wait...
and later adds the line
- is not a valid IP address and was rejected while applying the list of banned addresses.
Nothing else happens.
Note that I can add a torrent via cli and WebUI. It simply hangs when adding from the search results.


It does work from time to time. I haven't been able yet to isolate the issue. I'll keep this post updated, as there is indeed an issue but it might not come from qBittorrent itself.

Probably unrelated to qBittorrent. It seems that my IP (though my VPN) causes some website that have "DDoS protection by Cloudflare" to deny me access, and hence preventing qBittorrent to fetch the torrent file.
