If network interface connection drops while using proxy torrent still downloads #6668

qBittorrent version and Operating System:

v3.3.12 & Windows 10

What is the problem:

When a network interface (VPN interface) is specified and a proxy is also being used, if the connection through the network interface drops then torrents have a huge speed drop and appear to lose connection but then continue to download and speeds returns to normal.

If there is no proxy being used then once the connection through the specified interface drops, torrents will stop downloading.

What is the expected behavior:

Once the network interface connection is lost, all traffic will stop.

Steps to reproduce:

Specify network interface and setup proxy.
Disconnect the network interface while downloading.
Torrents should see a speed drop looking like a disconnection, but then the speed increases back to normal.

I have seen this on windows 10 before, I recommend using the windows firewall to block private and domain inputs and outputs for qbittorrent.exe. This will only work if your main network is set as "private" aka. there is a homegroup. When you connect to your vpn network, it will be public and the application will only be allowed to have incoming and outgoing connection while the vpn is active. This one has been the most reliable fix for me.
