I'm on DS 5.2.0 and it doesn't work for me :(
I'm not using any VPN, hope that this is not the main reason, but before month or two, everything worked perfect

So guys, I have contacted QNAP support and after they requested me for sending sample of torrent file which doesn't work, I did some research and I tried to find some "legal" torrent and try to download via DS.
And voilà la that files worked perfectly! I also googled for some information and qnap itself writes here: https://www.qnap.com/en/how-to/tutorial ... d-station/:
Important: The Download Station is provided for downloading authorized files only. Downloading or distributing unauthorized materials is against the law and may result in severe civil and criminal penalties. Users should be aware of copyright restrictions and will be held responsible for the consequences of their actions.
So please do the test for use realy legal torrent file! I tried this torrent, which works: https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/ ... EN.torrent (deprecated version of Digital Combat Simulator)...

So in other words, if you are using DS for downloading "illegal torrent files", QNAP DS restrict this download! For such files you have to use some other clients :-(...

I can think of no possible way Download Station would be able to tell the difference between “legal” and “illegal” torrents. ;)

production NAS: TS-569 Pro with Debian 9.8 'Stretch' (power on/off times are < 1 minute).
backup NAS: TS-559 Pro+ with QTS 4.2.6 #20181227

OK, then you have probably better answer and also can provide with some solution ;-). Does your download work?
Btw., the way for blacklisting torrents is possible, and applicable, it is enough to block the most of torrent tracker which provide "illegal content" etc... Of course it will be not 100% correct, but will unpleasant most of users...

No problem here with DS 5.2.0.117, no VPN. Don't ask me how I know ;-) Maybe your ISP is blocking stuff.

I'm sure that it is not related to ISP because uTorrent works perfect from mac os or win

Exactly, it has nothing to do with ISP.
As mentioned before, e.g. qBittorrent client on QNAP is working with any torrent file on same NAS, but DS is not working.
Could you provide any torrent file which is working for you on DS, just to confirm my version?

I've just tested this in vQTS 4.3.5.0760 #20181114 with Download Station 5.2.0 and it works fine.

I'm not a lawyer (neither is Download Station), but it's entirely possible the torrent I used could be considered "illegal". ;)

You already have a solution: use a different torrent client.

production NAS: TS-569 Pro with Debian 9.8 'Stretch' (power on/off times are < 1 minute).
backup NAS: TS-559 Pro+ with QTS 4.2.6 #20181227

For reference, these are my BT settings, no proxy or VPN. I am on fw 4.3.6.0776 (revoked) on a TS251 but was not having DS trouble with any 4.3.5 I installed before.

Sources for my files are pirate, rarbg and rutrader, I'm not sharing any files here, the're easy to find. @ornitus @biker972 I'm willing to test a torrent which causes trouble.

If Download Station has not been installed during installation already it can be installed out of the AppCenter in the Download section of it.

Sorry. Download Station knows how to download. I was thinking of an alternative to downloading a torrent. Can QBittorrent be installed on TS-231? Or another client?

Running DS with no issues. I can download any torrent file.
Read the Online Manuals and use the forum search feature before posting.

It is a recommended to use RAID and have external backups. RAID will protect you from disk failure, keep your system running, and data accessible while the disk is replaced and the RAID rebuilt. Backups will allow you to recover data that is lost or corrupted, or from system failure. One does not replace the other.

Submit bugs and feature requests to QNAP via their Helpdesk app.
