PassKey in RSS Feeds?, page 1

cchiapusiolightning Power User on February 2nd, 2016 / post 69155
Am I missing an option to turn on passkey for my rss feed downloads?  I'm having torrents that are auto-downloaded via the feed go stale on the tracker because it's trying to go by active IP address.

It appears to be using /announce-rls.php as opposed to /announce.php that is used for manually downloaded torrents.

announce-rls or announce - this has nothing to do with the process. it's the .torrent-file download script that adds passkey to the announce. and it doesn't do so for rss feeds, i guess. by the way planned how things should work - you authenticate to get the rss feed, thus following obtaining torrents shouldn't be an issue. but feeds were made free allowing reads without subscription, so torrents can be taken without authentication. and that created the problem you're mentioning..

solution where you do stuff: login from seedbox before you start torrents there...

proper solution: i;d need to change code to allow passing passkey via the rss, to still avoid authentication via IP, anyways, this is not something i'll be doing in the nearest future..

check maybe if you client has a force-set-passkey or something?... if that is a thing... hehe..

This is a problem still. I am using QBittorrent and have asked them to see if someone could update the RSS downloader to allow us to paste in either an updated URL or append to the existing with something like PASSKEY.

QB allows me to mass updating of the tracker - which is a positive - I have done that so all my stuff seeds without that nasty IP login stuff.
What I don't know is - for the IP to work do I just go to the website or do I need to sign out/in. I am doing the latter when required but will test the former.

Some pain but ... not the end of the world.
