Is BTGuard Working For You? (It seems down for me, 15 Oct.2012)


Recommended Posts


Just wondering if anyone here is using BTGuard and if it's working for you at the moment?

I've used it for a few months with no problem.

But for the past week or so it will not work at all.

uTorrent keeps saying "Waiting to log in" ... and I've tried reinstalls ... other torrent software ... it's no go.

My BTGuard is working properly again with Proxy changed back from to "proxy.btguard.com".

BTGuard sent me the following email which others may find helpful....
