alanso Posted July 5, 2014 Report Share Posted July 5, 2014 Hello guys,My VPN service used to allow free usage but now they block connections viauTorrent clients. They now (as of yesterday) only allow it if you sign up to their paid subscription package. I tried enabling protocol encryption:http://www.utorrent.com/help/guides/connection-setupBut it doesn't make a difference.(I don't see why the protocol encryption wouldn't work btu I'm not an expert.)I also tried setting the connection port to 80 and 8080 to try and fool teh VPN into thinking uTorrent was a browser,but that doesn't work either.I love uT and don't want to change to another bit torrent client but I don't think it would make a difference anyway.Do you guys know how a VPN (e.g. CyberGhost) knows you are using a bittorrent client as opposed to a browser? (and possibly how to mask this information so they only see generic traffic?).Fyi browsing works fine. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
