What if Deluge and Deluge Connect are on the same PC?
By default, Windows 8 does not allow apps to perform a loopback connection to the same machine.
This is a restriction imposed by the operating system, but can be disabled manually on an app-by-app basis.
To disable for Deluge Connect, run the following form a command prompt as administrator:
