Always Have the Entire Network in Mind

BitTorrent 4 lyfe Recently I moved my torrenting from Synology’s Download Station to dedicated programs inside Docker - first Deluge, now rTorrent. And it was slow, impossibly slow. Those clients even had problems getting the real names of the torrents, not to mention connecting to any clients.

Guess what the problem was.

Of course, as always, it was the sysadmin.

Synology is plug-and-play enough to use UPnP. My poor docker-locked clients did not. I needed to create a forwarding rule on my router which would point the port to the Synology and configure Docker to forward the port to the Docker container.

I am not a smart admin.
