Issues configuring Qbittorrent

I am having an issue setting up qbittorrent on freenas 11.3. It was running fine until some system changes, oddly none of my other plugins were affected.

I am having trouble with file permission and the umask of downloaded files and have a few questions:

1. I am wondering what is the recommended qbittorrent install? The community package, the one from IXsystem, or manual install? I notice the ones packaged from IXsystems are dated.

2. I installed the IXsystems packaged plugin through the GUI, but am not able to start and stop the service, "service qbittorent start". How can I fix this?

3. Where can I change the service user and group? (the default when first installing was root and not qbittorrent as expected)

4. Where can I specify the Umask for the qbittorent downloads? (right now its 755, I would like to change it to 770)
