How to use a VPN with uTorrent?

Recommended Posts

I have recently decided to try out total VPN when downloading torrents, however I find that this causes all of my trackers for all of my torrents to go offline (time out), which consequently means that I can't download or upload torrents.  What am I doing wrong?

Also, are there any better free VPNs I could use?  I'm not too concerned about speed.

Thank you

 

Also, one thing I have realized is that I'll then close uTorrent and switch off my VPN, and when I re-open uTorrent, all the files have downloaded.  Does uTorrent download files even when not running (and I do mean closed, not minimized).

Then contact the VPN support on how to configure their VPN. That is beyond the scope of utorrent help here. We don't help you locate or find VPN that is up to you to find and choose.

These days, all VPN providers have superior easy to use VPN software, which is almost as simple as 1-Click to connect and protect your Internet connection (including floods). As a result, the use of low resource consumption anonymously with VPN as easy as registering for the VPN service, software download and click "Connect" button (obviously open low resource consumption after VPN is connected)

A couple of things to consider when choosing a torrent VPN for connecting Utorrent:
1- A virtual private network that do not keep the records will become even more anonymous
2- Some do not allow VPN torrents. The VPN-we offer on this site do!
3- Some VPN-has additional features, which makes them better to the floods (as switch off).

I would suggest you look for a paid VPN service rather than the free one. It is because of numerous reasons:

  1. There are many paid VPN providers that offer a zero log policy.
  2. They provide their customers additional features which can be helpful for being anonymous while torrenting and P2P filesharing.
  3. You have a wider choice of locations to connect with in order to avoid copyright infringement issues.
  4. They have an active customer support where their tech agents guide you well with whatever queries you come up with.

Okay, there are a few things i still need to ask... because i'm not sure if i get it right. Also, you can try these to be certain or narrow down your problem.

 

1. What happens when you shut down your VPN? Do the torrents work/download just fine after you've shut down your VPN app?

2. Did you try downloading other files with VPN turned on? How did that go?

3. Did you try the new version of uTorrent? Did it work?

4. Did yu try the new version of that VPN app? Did that work?

5. Did you try another torrent client/vpn client? Did it work?

 

I had the same problem resuming torrents a while ago with Ivacy vpn, but as their support team pointed out, it was the file itself and had nothing to do with my ISP, uTorrent or my vpn app. I tried other files afterwards and they did work fine. That is how i was able to narrow down.
