How do I get rtorrent to use a socks5 proxy? I've tried to get socks5 to work with rtorrent, but it doesn't seem to have any impact.
Setup the socks5 proxy on port 9800:
ssh -ND 9800 user@otherhost
It cannot download any data from tracker.
Tracker: [Server returned nothing (no headers, no data)]
And my ip does not appear to use the IP from "otherhost" when I check with http://www.checkmytorrentip.com/
I also tried using tsocks rtorrent
server = 127.0.0.1 eserver_type = 5 server_port = 9800
This shows my IP as coming from 'otherhost', but after a few seconds rtorrent freezes up.
I am using rTorrent 0.9.2/0.13.2
