This means the torrent file you're trying to download has no seeds, thus you cannot download it from anyone.

How did you check that there are seeders seeding this torrent? You can open "peers" tab to see how much data each peer you're connected to have. You can see "fake" peers in both seeds/peers stat and in peers tab, that's either DHT crawlers or other random DHT peers which don't have a torrent you try to download.

If you see a peer with 100% downloaded data, that's a seed. If you're completely sure that the torrent is alive and seeded, it could be that the seeder does not have port forwarding activated or is behind NAT.
Make sure you have activated port forwarding and firewall is not blocking bittorrent port.

If you don't see a peer with 100% downloaded data, and downloaded percent is not increasing of peers is not increasing over time, this means that there's no seeder.

Well, it is, but it's still public. Github allows you to reply using email, but it's the same as you reply in your issue using web interface. And everyone can see your signature by the way.

@patriciavanroon: there has to be a counter for total downloaded bytes in the status bar right next to the speed indicator. Does the counter increase its value over time?

No, there is nothing. This is the screenshot of the program. Nothing wrong with firewalls, port forwarding and everything else seems to be working - just not qbittorrent.

Is this how to put an image on? I pasted from the clipboard.

There are no seeders on your torrent. Speed in square brackets that you can see in the bottom is a speed limit you set in settings, not the current speed.

Thanks for the screenshot. The number in the square brackets is not the actual speed but the speed limit. You can set or clear it clicking the label. Your actual speed is zero.

Yes, this is the problem. The speeds are set based on the information I got from speedtest. Why is my speed zero?

Because nobody is seeding files you want to download. These torrents are dead.

This is correct behaviour. They are made that way. Try a healthy torrent to test your connection. Linux distributions usually are healthy. Take Arch, for instance, https://www.archlinux.org/download/.

Isn't there a pdf of what the settings should be for this version of qbittorrent. Would someone post that? That would be helpful. I use PIA so it would be best if the settings were for use with my VPN.

If your routing is set up correctly, you do not need any special settings for qBt. You may, if you like, specify your VPN interface in advanced options page to make sure that qBt does not fall back to your regular connection when VPN disconnects.

The torrent is not dead. I think something happened when I updated my VPN even though the settings weren't changed. I'm trying one of the torrents I had before and it's working now.
