Thread: Is rTorrent safe?

  1. #1

    Question Mark

    Hi guys!

    Since a few days ago I have a NAS from Synology which has rTorrent as torrent client on board.

    But I've a problem. I'm a member of a private tracker but there is rTorrent not allowed. So I've asked the team why this client is blocked. Their answer was surprising me: "We block all clients we don't know!"

    So they doesn't know anything about this client. I asked if they would unblock the client if I can provide evidence that the client is safe!

    But I can't find anything that would proves that! Does someone of you have a link or something?

    If they've never heard of rTorrent, then there's a problem with that tracker, or at least the staff.

    Try convincing them in a polite way that it's a popular client.

    they didn't built Rome in one day

    I would instantly leave that tracker and never look back. Any site that does not allow rtorernt is run by people with no clue at all.

    rtorrent is widely accepted and considered one of the best native unix clients.

    i've used rtorrent on my seedbox for ages now, its perfectly safe - i use it on SCC/what/waffles/TB/Revtt etc... with no problems

    the tracker must have no clue

    Thanks for all the replies!

    The tracker I'm talking about is a german one.

    Btw, I'm from Austria and it's 08:25 in the morning now for me.
