Can't connect to search engine

Post by Sharky1 » Tue Jun 14, 2016 9:14 am

I have just installed and run V1.0.6 Beta, and I get a 'request to failed, on all the search engines. I have peerblock installed, but even with that turned off, I still get the error message.

Do you live in a country where those search engine sites are normally blocked? If so, go to Tools -> Preferences -> Advanced (tab) -> Proxy, and change the Proxy option to Preferred or Always. This should allow you to get around the blocked sites.

If it's already set to Preferred or Always On, try setting it to When Necessary, and let me know. Maybe something changed on the Proxy service that I need to fix.

Hi, I just installed the latest version and now when I open torrentrover and type an item in the search bar and hit search the item disappears and nothing happens. I have uninstalled it and reinstalled it and the same result. I also tried to load an older version and it just downloads the newest version with the same results.

Try Help -> Check for Definition Updates. You may need to restart TorrentRover for the changes to take effect.
