uTorrent and using a proxy only for trackers


Recommended Posts

I live in Italy and, as you may all have heard, PirateBay is now blocked for us. Under some ISPs changing the DNS is enough. Not under mine. It blocks the IP so I decided to use a proxy.

I put in a working proxy in the setting, do not activate "Use proxy for p2p communication" but it seems the tracker is still unreachable for me.

I don't think there's a way to directly use a proxy through my router as I spent hours trying to find the settings.

I'm running under WinXP SP2 patched and uTorrent otherwise runs fine. Only thing is I can't "see" piratebay trackers.

Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.


"Fixed" (more like bypassed) by simply removing the proxy and using DHT and peer exchange.
