[Support] Linuxserver.io - Rutorrent

To answer my own question, it looks like the changes have to be made in the rtorrent.rc file to change settling like bandwidth on a permanent basis.  I don't understand why changes made in the rutorrent don't "stick" with docker restarts. 

 

Is that a feature or bug?

Just added note to the first post on how to resolve this.  

@xthursdayx It is actually much easier than that. Simply copy the contents of your "/mnt/user/appdata/rutorrent/rtorrent/rtorrent_sess" into the following folder : "/mnt/user/appdata/binhex-rtorrentvp

From Linuxserver's Github:

 

https://github.com/linuxserver/docker-rutorrent/issues/188

 

We will continue with dropping support with this container in due course. We will be recommending current users to migrate to CrazyMax's rutorent cotainer: https://github.com/crazy-max/docker-rtorrent-rutorrent/

 

The question is how to migrate when the developer doesn't support unraid?

 

Conversation I had with the person who makes this container:

I just installed the binhex docker and got it working.  It has a lot more config options that you have to play with to get it working when you start - like turning off OVPN, for example, and giving passwords. I never used passwords with the linuxserver docker but I only used it locally or after making a separate OVPN connection with the OVPN docker.

I have installed it and  it seems to me that the interface is the same. The binhex docker may even be marginally better as it shows the flags of connected peers and I don't think that the linuxserver docker did that - at least by default.  Or maybe I was using an old version? I agree that there are a lot of setting that are superflouous if you don't use a VPN, etc but it looks like you can disable those.  

 

So this may be a decent path forward after all.

Did you transfer seeding torrents from one container to the other? If so, did you find a easy way to do this without manually downloading each .torrent file and rechecking them?

This worked for me to transfer over my torrents (along with adding the correct/same volume mapping(s)).

 

Now to port over my RSS feeds!

Could you give more details how you managed to make it work without a VPN at all ? Where/how to you specify the port for torrenting ? It does not seem to have one like linuxserver had. Do I have to add one more port myself and configure it manually in rtorrent conf files when the container is started ?

Great, thanks!
