    Guys,

    Is there a way to use http proxy to communicate with the tracker? It will be really useful for me..

    Thanks,

    R.

      sure! Just set environment "http_proxy" to your proxy. For example,

      export http_proxy=http://yourproxy.com:8080

      thanks, but didn't work :(

      I exported "http_proxy" and checked if it works with lynx for example,and it did, but it didn'w work with btqueue :(
      Any other suggestions?

      Thanks,

      R.

        Which is the mode you being used? scheduler or daemon? The environment must be exported prior the start of scheduler or daemon.

      I am using the daemon mode but I exported the env before I stared the daemon and I tried to restart several times but still no luck.
      I am ready to give you a user account to try it out if you have time for that..

        Grr sorry for misplacing my reply for second time :)

        Ah.. I'm so sorry for lately reply. I have just found that BitTornado does manually connect to tracker through httplib. That's why http_proxy doesn't work at all.

        I will find some way to help you. Probably migration to BitTorrent 4.2.1 should be better.

          dude, did you manage to do something about the proxy issue?

           
          • Sugree Phatanapherom

            sure! You can explicitly specify proxy for tracker connection using tracker_proxy option.
