Optimizing qBittorrent For Speed. Introduction This guide shows how to speed up downloads in the freeware bittorrent client, qBittorrent.

Optimizing qBittorrent For Speed

All bittorrent programs need to have their incoming and outgoing communications flow freely in order to achieve the highest download speeds and that is what this guide is about. This guide was put together using information given by the developers of bittorrent programs at their forums, guides and FAQs. There are no secret tricks, just the real basics of proper set up of a bittorrent program. Following these simple steps should result in increased download speed.

These are the basic principles of optimizing a bittorrent client, like qBittorrent, for speed: Choose a proper port to avoid ISP blocks and conflicts with other programs Forward that port through any software firewall and router to allow incoming connections Adjust internal settings based upon upload capacity of the internet connection to allow room for outgoing communications and to distribute upload efficiently. Good Torrents. Setting up qBittorrent on Ubuntu server as daemon with Web interface (15.04 and newer) · qbittorrent/qBittorrent Wiki. Ubuntu 15.04 no longer mounts samba share on boot? : linux4noobs. SAMBAClientSetup. Translation(s): none Should work out of the box if you install cifs-utils: The protocol in Firefox/Iceweasel: try smbclient -L <computer-name> (requires smbclient package) Using the Gnome file browser to browse Samba hosts and shares Mounting samba shares for easy access by programs does not work out of the box because NetBIOS name resolution isn't set up correctly.

However, if you figure out the IP address of a server you'd like to connect to (while you have a page accessing open in firefox, do 'netstat' from a command prompt and look for IP addresses using the "netbios-ssn" service), the following will work: Add the following line to /etc/fstab: //<IPAddress>/<share name> /mnt/smb cifs password=,uid=1000,umask=000 0 0 Here we're using the mountpoint /mnt/smb (which you must create) and assuming the share has no password.

If the share does have a password, try an options list like the following: Simple Samba Shares in Debian - Thomas-Krenn-Wiki. Here, we would like to quickly explain how you can create a simple Samba share on a Debian-based system.

However, please note that we will not look at user permissions in detail here. ALL USERS will have access to the share created, and can read, write and even delete. Raspberry Pi: Creating a secure torrent client. Recently, I was made a gift of a Raspberry Pi project computer, and I’ve been going nuts ever since doing numerous projects with it.

Raspberry Pi: Creating a secure torrent client

None of them are particularly unique, because this is basically a Linux computer, so I could do any of these projects on a regular computer. However, the fun thing about the Raspberry Pi is that it can be a small device that is focused on doing one thing, with a small physical and energy footprint. (This particular project could also be applied to a regular Linux-based desktop computer, but this tutorial will be Pi-focused in some of it’s aspects.)

Covering Your Tracks The key element of this tutorial is creating a “secure” presence on the Internet for file sharing. It’s also possible to use an established VPN as your primary interface to the Internet, and cover all your presence for more than just file sharing (for example, for your Web browsing activities as well). RPi Resize Flash Partitions. This page describes activities relating to partitions on the Raspberry Pi for Linux based operating systems, such as Raspian Linux.

It may also apply to other operating systems too, but you should check. Incorrectly using the following instructions is likely to corrupt your system. The prepared images for the Raspberry Pi are created for SD cards of the size of 2GB. The SD card can be resized or restructured to use the full size of a SD card that is greater than 2GB. Raspi-config If using the Raspian or Debian images the raspi-config utility can be used to resize the main partition to fill the SD card. This will happen automatically. Explanation.

Using Proxyserver as VPN router alternative – Hide My Ass! Support. Apt-get install wget curl sed tinyproxy openvpn iptables nano Scroll down to this part: Here you can add IPs or subnets that are allowed to use the proxy.So if you want to let only client IP 192.168.0.35 use the proxy, add:Allow 192.168.0.35 If you want to let the whole subnet 192.168.0.x use the proxy, add:Allow 192.168.0.0/24 Now, scroll down to this part:Comment the "ConnectPort 443" line, so it looks like this:# ConnectPort 443Of course you can also remove it.This is required, otherwise the proxy can't be used while the VPN is connected via OpenVPN-TCP on port 443.
