    Ever since upgrading to rtorrent pro and using a VPN i get the error "Bad response from server: (500 [error,list]) Link to XMLRPC failed. May be, rTorrent is down?" pretty much every day and sometimes if i close rutorrent web page and re-open it i get the error "No connection to rTorrent. Check if it is really running. Check $scgi_port and $scgi_host settings in config.php and scgi_port in rTorrent configuration file." This is not ideal. rTorrent-Pro also takes about 10mins+ to start if i need to restart it, the non pro version never took this long. What could be going wrong and how do i stop this happening? I am using rtorrent-pro V0.9.6-0419.
    This is in the crash log file:
    1559757003 W Ignoring ~/.rtorrent.rc.
    1559757003 C Caught exception: 'Could not open/bind port for listening: Cannot assign requested address'.

    The VPN is connected and shows as been connected the whole time

    Firmware version: 4.3.4.0695 Build 20180830

    You have to tell us something about your VPN connection. Because I dont think its available in the system correctly.

    What would you like to know about the VPN? Its set up in QVPN, it says connected and the time connected shows long enough to when rtorrent was working. Its set in the interface list correctly. It works to start with then it seems rtorrent decides it cant connect to it. A restart of rtorrent will usually solve the issue, but as stated that takes about 10 mins.
    If i noticed that the VPN connection kept dropping in QVPN i would understand, but it doesnt.

    Do you think your VPN provider switches your IP every 10 minutes?
    If yes so, then please try to follow this guide:

    Thanks, i will try that if i have to but the IP does seem to stay the same. It generated a new IP when i restarted the VPN last and QVPN is now showing the connection as being up for 102 hours and rtorrent has only lost connection once in that time. Its possible that some routing through the previous IP or traffic on that particular server was causing instability.

    I will keep monitoring it and let you know my findings.
