Vpn Works But Bittorrent Clients Won't Download Torrents


Recommended Posts

I'm running gnome ubuntu 14.04 with openvpn and using vpnbook. I am able to use vpnbook to connect and surf the web and can check that my IP address is successfully changed to the outside.

However, when I try to use any bitTorrent client (e.g. transmission, ktorrent etc.), the client will not start downloading the torrent. It just says it's stalled or just does nothing. I am using the the certificates and servers (euro 1 or euro 2) which allow p2p sharing. I am able to download torrents with the bitTorrent clients without vpnbook enabled without a problem.

Is there something else I need to do to configure things correctly? ...a port change perhaps? There doesn't seem to be any help for this issue on the internet. And I don't know if it's an issue with Ubuntu specifically.
