All Deluge Downloads freeze (SOCKS5 Proxy??)

Postby bengalih » Fri Oct 23, 2020 6:45 pm

I've been having this issue for a couple of years now.
I dealt with it with 1.x versions eagerly awaiting a new release. While still no official 2.x installer for Windows, I've installed the unofficial packages and after a couple of months running I continue to have this issue.

Basically, what happens is every so often - could be daily, but usually about once a week (or twice at most) all of my torrents stop downloading.
This is true even of new torrents that get added. They just sit at 0% not making any connections.

The only way to resolve this is to restart my deluge service at which point the will almost immediately connect again.

While I have no proof, my best guess is that this is due to the SOCKS5 proxy. I believe that with the "force use of proxy" options that if the proxy might become unreachable even for a moment that Deluge never properly renegotiates back to begin downloads.
Again, this is just a guess, but so far no one has been able to provide any insight into my issue despite the fact it has persisted across multiple deluge builds and multiple ISPs.
