Configuring Torrent Clients for IPv6

Setting up Deluge and rTorrent for IPv6

This guide assumes you have a working IPv6 interface. If you are on a Leaseweb server please follow the "IPv6 on your Leaseweb server" guide found under the "Dedicated Servers" category.

Deluge

Navigate to Edit>Preferences>Network

Set network interface to 0.0.0.0

Click apply

All future traffic will be able to use IPv6 and IPv4, provided you are using an IPv6 compatible tracker.

RuTorrent

By default, our mediabox setup uses rTorrent 0.9.6, this version does not support IPv6. You will need to upgrade rTorrent using:

sudo box upgrade rtorrent 

When prompted for the version you wish to install, select a version above 0.9.8, this is due to it being most stable version that is compatible with IPv6.

rTorrent is configured to use the correct network interface by default, future traffic will use IPv6 and IPv4, provided you are using an IPv6 compatible tracker.
