Local file choosers displayed by gtkui for remote connection through SSH tunnel

Reported by: tkoster Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone: Future
Component: GTK UI Version: 1.3.1
Keywords: remote chooser ssh tunnel Cc:


The GTK UI is showing local file browsers for my connection to a remote deluged instance.

I didn't think the deluge team would be silly enough to do this, and I was right of course, but after diving into the source it seems to me that the client is switching which chooser to display depending on whether the server address is localhost or not. Herein lies the problem: I am connected to a remote deluged instance through an SSH tunnel with my endpoint bound to localhost. That is, yes: the UI is connected to localhost, but no: the deluged instance is not running locally.


  • deluged is running on 'remotesvr' on the usual port.
  • I open the tunnel like so: "ssh -N -L 58847:localhost:58846 thomas@remotesvr".
  • I connect to the remote deluged through the tunnel by pointing my client at localhost:58847.
