  2. From my experiences over the years i would say that using ISP DNS can get a copyright notice emailed to you within 24 hours. That is why Socks5 is less favored by some people because it requires more manual tweaking for it to be secure and run properly. I have seen many people over the years complain about getting notices from using the default ISP DNS servers it seems to be something alot of people miss. Also like i say some Torrent Clients do not work well with Socks5 as like a design flaw or Bug i can not remember which ones, and of course make sure you setup the basic settings in the torrent client like - Encryption ON for incoming/Outgoing and you might also be able to setup a specific Socks5 IP then BIND your torrent client to only run using the Binded IP and DNS etc etc etc socks5 requires alot of configuring to run properly.

    10 warnings from ISP - is proxy disconnecting?

    A Deluge user pointed me the a deluge plugin that allows direct modification to libtorrent settings. I enabled force_proxy and after some testing, convinced myself that it does work. If the specified proxy isn't working it stops downloading instead of falling back to use my real IP address. From searching the forum here I do see others talking about proxies disconnecting, so it seems it does happen. At least now I have it fixed so I'm not exposed when this happens.

    Get Plex Remote Access to work with TorGuard App

    I was also having issues with getting plex to allow access from outside my local network and I had port forwarding set up with torguard (website). The trick to finally getting it to work was to request both TCP AND UDP port 32400 for the given IP address that I have pinned for my torguard server of choice. Originally I only had UDP requested because I was using UDP protocol but plex wants BOTH ports. After that, no problem at all.

    10 warnings from ISP - is proxy disconnecting?

    RyDze...thanks for the reply! Due to family usage and my own requirements I can't use a VPN at all. I checked my configuration with the Deluge instructions for Proxy on the Torguard site and all is well there. I've been using my ISP's DNS all this time but it's easy enough to change for the network adapter on my server. I'll do that. For my own understanding, is it fair to say that a DNS leak would not lead to the email that I received the next day giving the exact file and time that I was torrenting?

    DD-WRT not running TorGuard Startup Command

    Support had me use the "Newer" (manual) setup. Removed the startup command, followed the tutorial below and Worked like a charm. Could you reset router once and try to set up this other way- https://torguard.net/article/192/dd-wrt-openvpn-client.html

    How are you getting above 200?

    I'm not an expert, but OpenVPN is single-threaded, so to get the highest speed possible you simply need a device with a high single core clock speed. My 9900k gets me around 300 Mbit/s iirc. I don't know if that is limited by the cpu or the TG server. Alternatively if your use case supports it, you could switch to IPSec for higher speeds.
  11. I've recently installed a Netgear Orbi RBR50 and placed a Netgear R7800 w/ DD-WRT inside the network. My DD-WRT router is not running the TorGuard startup command so the R7800 w/ DD-WRT is not connecting to the VPN. I've patched the Orbi with V2.5.1.8 and I've flashed the R7800 with DD-WRT v3.0-r42819 std (03/30/20). The Orbi LAN is 192.168.25.1 subnet 255.255.255.0 and is checked as the DHCP server. I've added a fixed IP for the R7800 w/ DD-WRT (192.168.25.4) and set the Advanced > Setup > WAN > Default DMZ Server to 192.168.25.4. I can connect clients to the R7800 w/ DD-WRT and browse the internet with a non-VPN conneciton. The R7800 with DD-WRT is setup as follows: The R7800 w/ DD-WRT is setup as 192.168.2.1 and assigning ip addresses and is allowing the connected devices using 192.168.2.XX IPs to access the internet. In DD-WRT > Services > VPN > OpenVPN Server/Daemon i've checked OpenVPN > Enable In DD-WRT > Administration > Commands > Startup I've added the file with my credentials (redacted) After rebooting the Router the OpenVPN log is empty The SysLog shows the following (DDWRT_setup04.png) As a side note on startup DD-WRT was not able to resolve 0.north-america.pool.ntp.org so I needed to use 216.239.35.0 (Google) (DDWRT_setup05.png). Although once the router is Up DNS to outside websites is working just fine. Are my DNS settings bad? Its as if the Startup Command is not even being run. Have I missed something? Thanks!
  12. Hey @HideAndGoSeek Deluge might be one of the clients that does not work well with Proxys/sock5. First you have to make sure you are NOT using your ISP DNS. You can change your DNS in your router/modem OR in your network adapter. If your using the Automatic DNS provided by your ISP then that will cause a leak for sure. There are tons of guides online which go step by step on configuring your Torrent client for socks5 as you need to enable/disable multiple things in settings for it to work properly and of course the settings are different for each client be it Utorrent or Deluge or Other , If your still getting a leak after checking your Torrent Client program configuration and if you have checked your DNS configuration and there is still a leak then it is likely a problem with Deluge and you should therefore use a different Client. In my personal opinion Socks5 is definitely not as reliable as using a Full VPN. When using Only Socks5 you need to make sure your using a good client that is reliable and you have alot of things you need to configure for it to work properly which is why using VPN software makes life alot easier. What i do is i run 2 wifi routers on my network... wifi home - uses Normal internet no VPN wifi work - uses VPN So i can swith between networks with the click of a button so my wife and kids can use the home network and i can switch between them depending on what i am doing. I also use the Windows VPN software Provided by Torguard which works well when all the proper settings are configured. Keep in mind you should always Keep a close eye on your DNS IP's using your ISP provided ones = leak.

    Sydney IP issues

    Yes, I agree. The old Melbourne server was solid. Never believe promises about what might happen until it happens.

    Torguard client unreliable

    If you disable auto start on boot - does it then stop crashing when you pull the power cable?

    Torguard client unreliable

    Would it be possible to enable TorGuard debugging, reproduce the problem, then grab and send us the log to sysadmin(at)torguard.net? It would be very helpful Thanks

    Torguard client unreliable

    I noticed that when I move my laptop, the client is crashing and thats because the power plug is become loose. When I pull the power from back of the laptop the client is crashing, even when laptop is fully charged. I tried changing the power saving mode for wireless adapter settings to maximum performance but did not help. Any other suggestions? I am using windows 10 with core I7 with 3.98.3 torguard client (latest). Torguard works well for me except for this. Thanks

    10 warnings from ISP - is proxy disconnecting?

    Here's another format of the torrent checker status (neither address is my actual IP): Tracker Status: 34.204.227.31: Error: IP: 194.59.250.226
  24. I've been running Torguard proxy for 5 years now. Initially I bought a VPN but decided I didn't want the whole house to suffer the performance (my wife often works from home) so I switched to a proxy. Another reason for the switch to a proxy was that I run a mail server on my desktop and even with help from Torguard Support, it would be complicated to use the VPN, such as installing DD-Wrt on my router, adding firewall rules, etc (if I understood it at the time). So, I switched to a proxy account. It wasn't until last year that I got my first copyright warning from my ISP, but then I got 1 a week ago and 9 more yesterday. My theory is that the proxy is disconnecting but Deluge (v1.3.13 running on Linux) keeps downloading. Am I right, that the proxy can occasionally disconnect? (I did read several Topics here in the forum about this.) My Deluge Proxy config has Socks5 W/Auth, my username/pswd, proxy.torguard.org and port 1085 for Peer, Web Seed, Tracker, and DHT. For the first 4 years I had used a particular host address from the long list online, but I changed it to "proxy.torguard.org" last year. I forget why I made that change. After that first ISP warning last year, I may have thought that a hardwired IP might disconnect more often? Or, I may have thought that with the host name, if the proxy died it would switch to another and continue downloading instead of stopping altogether. Typically the torrent checker status shows one of the following: "Tracker Status: 34.204.227.31: Error: Connection timed out", or "34.204.227.31: Error: Success, TorGuard Netherlands Socks5 Proxy Connected." but downloading always continues. I did a test and changed proxy.torguard.org to 123.123.123.123 and downloading continued and the checker still said "Netherlands Socks5 Proxy Connected". BUT, if I exit and restart Deluge and it's daemon, THEN it won't download, and the checker status is now shows "34.204.227.31: Error: Connection timed out". So it seems the active Deluge doesn't detect the proxy down? The odd thing is that if I change the fake IP address back to proxy.torguard.org in the running Deluge (without stop/restart), after less than a minute it starts downloading again. After a couple of minutes the torrent checker status changes back to "34.204.227.31: Error: Success, TorGuard Netherlands Socks5 Proxy Connected." So, something a bit flaky in Deluge in that it can't detect the proxy disconnecting, but can detect it becoming active? It seems there is no kill switch for proxy use, so I wrote a simple one yesterday. I believe I've occasionally seen my real IP address on the STATUS tab of the "Check My Torrent IP Tool" in Deluge, and I assume it's because the proxy disconnects. My simple kill switch therefore runs in a cron job every 30 seconds, gets the check torrent info with "deluge-console info 0975cf2f18db055ef67f87651637e0da366e9877" and scans it for my real IP address. If I don't find my real IP address I know it's working. If my script finds my IP address, I figure the proxy has disconnected. I initially thought I'd pause all torrents in Deluge. I don't know if that's good enough to stop my visibility to peers so I actually halt the server which removes the process entirely. The script sends me a txt message so I know to look at Deluge to see what's going on. HOWEVER, I don't really believe that my real IP has to be shown in the tracker status for the download to be using it, and making me visible. IOW, I don't think my kill switch is very useful at the moment. So, lots of things I don't know for sure: is the problem really that the Proxy is "disconnecting"? when the status shows "Tracker Status: 34.204.227.31: Error: Connection timed out" but it's still downloading, is it still actually using the proxy? is proxy.torguard.org better than a hard-wired Torguard server IP address? is my 30-second check interval often enough for my IP not to be seen? does just pausing torrents in Deluge remove them from the Peer list that other peers see? and of course, is there a way to handle all this?

  28. Hello everyone! I'm new to this with VPN's but I'm trying to learn as much as I can because I find it very interesting. My question for today is how do I use a Dedicated VPN? That I know so far is that click "More settings" then go to "servers" and there you can create your Dedicated IP, so far so good! When I change the country to what I want to, I then add a name, but the problem for me is the "address" thing. This might be a stupid question but can I write whatever I want in there? Don't get me wrong, I get that I should type in some sort of IP Address but can I just make one up? Like 12.34.56.67? or how does that work? Thanks in advance for the help you guys provide. 😄
