  1. I am using the Windows version with a Nord VPN. Twice my service has been interrupted by Cablevision (ISP) because of a Torrent download violation. What am I doing wrong to avoid detection?
  2. Hi guys, I was reading up on the best VPNs when I came across an article saying that uTorrent sends packets out with our IP addresses in them, making the use of a VPN while torrenting futile. Is this the case with Bittorrent? I only paid for my VPN in order to torrent without being hassled by my ISP. Hypothetically.
  3. If a proxy specified under Preferences-->Connection is used (let's say it's SOCKS 5), will BitTorrent stop uploading/downloading if the connection with a proxy server suddenly breaks down? Or will it switch to using "home" IP? If it stops uploading/downloading, is it so precise that no data actually leaves the computer under "home" IP or will it deanonymize the user?
  4. I'm a "newbie" -- would someone please post the specific setup preferences for maximizing download speeds using a VPN (Private Internet Access).
  5. Which vpn should i use to protect myself when torrenting.There are so many with both good and bad reviews.It's very confusing.Sorry if this is the wrong place to ask.I was'nt sure which forum to click on.
  6. Is there a setting in Bittorrent that will cause it to stop downloading if my VPN goes down?
  7. Hello! I am a new member and although I have been running Bittorrent for some time and am relatively familiar with it, I am not that knowledeable about the set up for vpns with Bittorrent, although I do properly understand how vpns work. My current set up is as Bittorrent recommends as given by the setup guide. I am running on fibre optic provided by Orange/EE. Without vpn on, I get download speeds of up to 5Mb/s and several hundred nodes connected. When I turn my vpn on, I get virtually no speed or connections through Bittorrent. On checking the settings by running the setup guide, it can't get a bandwidth reading - says "timed out.(10060)". Please could someone point out to me what I am doing wrong, or what I have missed doing to make this all work? I have made no changes to my Windows 7 OS at all or am running any software other than Bittorrent and the vpn provider's. Do I have to make changes to the OS or run other software? A nice simple web page explaining what you need to do would be great, but I couldn't find one! Perhaps I was searching incorrectly... Any help to get this sorted out will be gratefully received! TIA!

  8. HELP PLEASE!! Recently, my torrents haven't been downloading while I am connected to my vpn client and this has been going on for a few days now. I use HideMyAss as a vpn client. I know it is not a problem with the vpn program because it tells me when I have a working connection to the server. Every time I switch off the vpn, my torrents start downloading again almost instantly. Could it be a problem with my ISP? I don't think it is because I haven't received any notices from my ISP. Help would be appreciated.
  9. I've been using uTorrent without problems for a number of months, working through the BTGuard VPN. A few days ago, I noticed that I was neither downloading or seeding. I thought it might be because some of the files I was downloading don't have many seeds/peers, so I added a couple of very popular torrents to my list to see what would happen. I'm getting nothing even on popular titles. Most of the time the status bar shifts to brown which (I assume) means there is no activity going on. Nothing shows up in the up speed and down speed columns. I changed nothing. Is BTGuard having a problem? Or is there something I should be looking at?
  10. I will be going off to college in the fall and it would be nice to be able to download torrents while I am there even over the college network. It's not necessary but it would be nice. Recently I have been reorganizing my home network to provide computers on our network (along with the proper credentials) access to a 2TB external hard drive attached to the main desktop (a sort of software based NAS, through file sharing), as well as our printer and other network resources. While I was doing this I thought it would be cool to set up a VPN host on our desktop so that I could connect to our home network at college through the VPN and access the previously mentioned network resources. The VPN is currently working for what I want it to do. I understand that VPN's allow one to circumvent certain regional restrictions and blocked sites as well as provide a more secure connection in public networks. Now for the question: I am wondering if it would be possible to use my home network's VPN to hide my torrent downloading. I know that network administrators at my college would be able to see my downloading volumes but I beliebe BitTorrent allows you to restrict the download speeds/volumes (I would also like more information on this aspect of downloading torrents discreetly). As I said, it's not a neccessity but it would be nice. I just want to get the most out of my VPN and my technology. Thank you for any info, I'm pretty new to networking but I've gotten this far!
