Question QBitTorrent sometimes connects to peers and downloads ?

My QBitTorrent has been working but for the last couple of days I gets no peers nor does it download and in the connection status it says "no direct connections". I use SurfShark VPN and I can still surf web pages with the VPN. I have tried to troubleshoot my problem as follows:

  • Adding ports to the port forwarding in the router
  • adding ports to the PC firewall
  • turning off my PC firewall
  • resetting the router
  • using too see if any of that other stuff worked
  • tested with & without a VPN (it works)
If I leave it long enough it sometimes might find some seeders and downloads a file at full bandwidth but the rest of the torrents won't do a thing ?
