Deluge does not download anything

Hi all. I have an issue with Deluge.

I just reinstalled the last release from sratch because of a SD failure after a couple of years of continuous usage of the last one. The system was always kept up to date.

After the flash on the new SD I tried to replicate my previous setup. I have an external NTFS USB drive mounted at /mnt/storage where I used to save downloads. I mounted it with dietpi-drive_manager. I also installed the ntfs-3g driver and I’m able to create and delete files in the mounted drive.

dietpi@DietPi:~$ df -h

I reinstalled Deluge from the software utility and pointed the download folder to /mnt/storage/Torrents/Downloading/

Everything seems similar to my old setup. The services are runnig as expected, the web ui works perfectly and the user permissions seem right.

dietpi@DietPi:~$ ps -ef | grep deluge
debian-+    1592       1  1 Sep13 ?        00:14:39 /usr/bin/python3 /usr/bin/deluged -d
debian-+    1605       1  0 Sep13 ?        00:01:25 deluge-web

dietpi@DietPi:~$ groups debian-deluged
debian-deluged : dietpi debian-deluged

All that said, every torrent I add to the download list via the web ui do not start. They just stay there at 0%

I see Peers and Peers constantly at 0.

BTW, I added a torrent that points to /mnt/storage/Torrents (USB drive) and one that points to /mnt/dietpi_userdata/deluge (system SD card) and neither of them starts, so I’m inclined to say that it’s NOT the destination drive type or FS that causes the issue

The logs don’t say much.

I didn’t change any of the default ports. In deluge web-ui I have “incoming port” set to 6881, and I can’t see it in the list. “outgoing ports” is ser to random

Can anyone please tell me what I am missing?

yes, you are missing the newest feature (bug) of Deluge application :wink:

I played with it and had the same issue to download stuff from a source (RPi image)

After playing around I found the trigger to get Deluge to LISTEN on port 6881. Within the preference menue, simple hit the arrow down/up button to change port from 6881 to 6882 and back to 6881. Apply the change and check ports again

ss -tulpn | grep deluged

You should see port being used now. Perform a “force recheck” in Deluge Web UI. At least this start the download on my test system.

make sure your permissions are correct for the Torrent drive, that was my problem

That was it!!!

I just had to change the port, and apply, then change it back, and apply, and after some seconds, the downloads started one by one by themselves.

Thank you very much!! You really saved my day.

P.S.

the

ss -tulpn | grep deluged

command does not show any port used by deluged anyway.

strange, for me this is working perfectly.
