I am unable to use Deluge torrent client in 12.04, i am confused about what setting should i use in preferences. It asks for various proxies - one for each of Peer, Seed, Tracker... I have used torrents only in windows before and configuring it was as easy as hell. I use internet on a WiFi LAN. thanks for any help.

Close voter(s): This is not off-topic, we support software on Ubuntu including Deluge (which is even provided by Ubuntu's official software sources). Please see the FAQ. This is potentially too broad to answer (and consequently might be not a real question), or too subjective to answer (which might make it not constructive), but it is not off-topic. –  Eliah Kagan Mar 20 '13 at 8:24

Those are the same settings as in Windows.

Private trackers use HTTPS w/ auth and have DHT enabled. Many public trackers use DHT. Leave web seed off.

I believe your problems if they worked in windows are not related to proxy since those settings need not be adjusted unless you are re-routing traffic.

For example if I wanted to reroute to a specific server for additional security.

Is the torrent giving any tracker errors? Maybe you are on a bad tracker. If so add this to the tracker list


I don't know what exactly is your problem because it is too vague and proxy seems unrelated. Most problems occur due to bad trackers. I add more myself to remedy that.
