QNap download station does not upload

I am using Download Station on my QNap NAS TS 253-B. I have been downloading a number of torrents. But the Download Station does not seem to be seeding/uploading. This is going to destroy my ratio at the torrent site.

The manual is annoyingly badly written, with no help on the QNap forum. What I want to do is seed infinitely and to an infinite seed ratio.

In Settings > BT > Bandwidth Limit I have made the settings shown in the image.
Just in case you're wondering:
    yes, there are leechers for the torrents I have downloaded.
    The Share Time maximum is 2 weeks or 'Forever'. I assume that means it will be shared indefinitely. Am I right or wrong?
    I tried to change the Share Ratio to a higher number. I assume that a higher percentage will increase the time the file gets seeded by Download Manager. Am I right or wrong?
Is there a setting that I am missing? I don't want to ruin my seed/leech ratio at my torrent account. Could somebody please tell me how to change this mess?

Thanx,

Thom

Hi Thom,

I'm running into the same thing. Now that I am working from a laptop I thought I would use my qnap for any torrent downloads. Download speeds are great but seeding does not seem to work correctly. I have tried various client options in the QNAP but nothing seems to work. I wonder if there is some sort of built in firewall into the QNAP that is preventing any seeding.

Same problems here, i am dissapointed abouth download station. Everything is ok, download speed as expected, but when downloading of torrent ends that`s it, seeding does not start, torrent itself there is just waiting... Any news?

I don't think QNAP is taking this issue seriously. Perhaps it is time to start investigating other solutions. Perhaps switching to Synology might help. I'm not sure if there support is better or non existent like QNAP.

Unless you and the others that are having an issue open tickets with QNAP they are unaware of the issue. This is a community forum and QNAP does not participate.

Yes, ticket has been opened but no solution. I was rather treated like I was the problem. The support I received was mediocre as if this application was an afterthought. It doesn't sound like QNAP support is very knowledgeable on how torrent clients should work. After 2 weeks of back and forth I gave up.

Well the Qnap forum is only users like you and me so apparently the Download Station users aren't as helpful as users of other Qnap Stations. If you contribute by answering questions in the forum in the future, it will become better.

I'll do my best here but it's been a long time since I used Download Station and if there are any recently introduced bugs, I'm not aware of them.
yes, there are leechers for the torrents I have downloaded.
And not too many seeders competing with you?

Also have you opened the necessary port in the router/firewall and have enough internet upload capacity to fulfill incoming requests?
The Share Time maximum is 2 weeks or 'Forever'. I assume that means it will be shared indefinitely.
2 weeks should mean two weeks and 'Forever' I would assume is indefinitely, so in reality the share ratio will be the limiting factor if there's enough demand for the file.
I tried to change the Share Ratio to a higher number. I assume that a higher percentage will increase the time the file gets seeded by Download Manager.
No. 100 % means that you seed the same amount of data as the file size so 999 % means that you will seed until you've shared 9.99 times as much data as the size of the file in question.
