proxy not working?

Postby zozor » Mon Jun 12, 2017 1:02 pm

Hello there,
I just installed deluge on a raspberry pi, and set the proxy to a local SSH tunnel ( = locally running SOCK5 proxy that redirects to a remote host ).
If the tunnel is off, there is no activity. If I turn it on, there is activity, but "netstat" shows I'm directly connected to peers ; I'm new to torrent but I assume at no point I am suppose to directly connect to anyone but the proxy?

I'm thinking maybe you're seeing UTP connections from outside the proxy, since ssh socks5 doesn't support UDP. If using a socks5 proxy, then I would highly suggest using the ltconfig plugin and enabling force_proxy and anonymous_mode, since that will make sure libtorrent never connects/recieves to anything except the proxy and they are unset by default in libtorrent.

I'm having the same problem (also using Raspbian). Installed the ltconfig plugin, but force_proxy is no longer an option. Other ideas for a fix?
