Hi all,

is there a way to download .torrent file instead of opening them with default application ? I want to download them via the Torrent-Client installed on my NAS. It's watching for torrent files in a specific directory. I cannot find any option for this.

Thanks in advance.

    Hi niceday,

    Yes, there is an "automatically open torrent files after downloading" option in the Preferences tab, it's checked by default because that's what users usually want, but in your case you should disable it so your NAS is the one to pick your torrent files.

    Keep in mind that this only works if you use torrent files, if you have the "prioritize magnets" option checked, there are no files to be opened, magnets are always downloaded locally because that's how they work.
