Error: Bad address using a https tracker

Reported by: MarbolanGos Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: libtorrent Version: 1.3.1
Keywords: Cc:



first thing I really love this torrent interface and I nearly wanted to leave the tracker as they did not work with deluge... The title is perhaps incorrect as I have seen this bug: But I cannot see any other explanation on this bug...

Here is the thing, I use deluge on 2-3 trackers without any issue and then I started to use another tracker with an https address in the announce. When I get any torrent I have the error: "Error: Bad address".

What did I try unsuccessfully?

  • Changing deluge version from 1.3.0 (Fedora 14 basic version) to 1.3.1.
  • Changing port for the UDP/TCP connexion: tried 6885, 16885 and 56566! I am sure it is not a firewall issue as, at the end, I set-up to dmz for my router and shutdown iptables.
  • Tried to redownload the torrent many times.
  • Changed my passkey on the tracker.

What should be known is that other torrents are working while doing those tests. My kernel: Linux node0 #1 SMP Mon Feb 7 07:06:44 UTC 2011 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux. My configuration file:

What makes me think that it is not an issue from the tracker?

  • The admin of the tracker said that he tried on Ubuntu deluge and it works.
  • I installed transmission (I hate it) and the torrent works.

I am open to any tests in order to make it work!

Cheers, MarbolanGos

Can you try using 0.15.5? I'm sure there are https specific fixes in the latest version..
