Trouble downloading Torrent with VPN ?

I can't seem to download a torrent. I am on a Mac, using NordVPN P2P, downloading through QBittorrent. The download is stalling and nothing is happening, but my internet connection seems fine. I saw somewhere that it can be a "port forwarding" issue. But when I go on canyouseeme.org, there seem to be a "timeout issue" on all the ports I tried (80, 25 or the one I use for QBittorent).

Can Anyone help me ?

Try another software like utorrent, I’m wondering if the problem may be the compatibility between your Mac and the software. Hope this helps!

One of the reasons for torrents to stall is if there aren't any active seeders.
Try to re Install the app again.

I've been using this qbittorent and NordVPN for over a year and never had a problem before today. And it is a very popular torrent, so many seeders !

Try to turn off port forwarding, maybe change the location, did you try to reboot your computer? do you have enough disk space on your computer?
If an older version of qbittorent was working try re-install it, finally use clean my mac to clean up some system junk.

Are you double NAT, that is to say do you have a router you connect to behind the Fizz router ?

How is the VPN set-up, in the app, at the OS level (best) or directly on the router?
