    Speed suffering!!

    Has this been renamed / moved / deprecated? I see all the other options, but not this one.

  4. Hello, I am trying to do port forwarding due to connections issues with my torrent client of choice and I have a question. Are ports 1080, 1085, or 1090 (As per the setup guide) the only ones I am allowed to use. I ask because I am having issues getting any of them forwarded, but I have another port, 62348, forwarded perfectly. Can I set my port under SOCKS5 to be this working one instead?

    Can I setup dedicated IP on Ubiquiti Edge X

    Hello, Yes, i believe you can, instructions are fairly straight forward - if you need help with that submit a ticket here https://torguard.net/submitticket.php For speed is impossible for us to predict it depends on many variables. Regards
  7. Have you guys tried switching to tunnel type openconnect? some users report changing the tunnel type helped with any issues regarding Microsoft software/services. Regards

    Stupid captcha

    Hello, Apologies for the captcha at the moment, being the most effective at blocking brute force attempts is why we have it in place currently, we are looking at different solutions. Regards
  9. Hello, The HP MicroServer N40L doesn't look like it was built for speed, it's quite an old system, it doesn't support AES-NI which it would have hugely benefited from, the vast difference between your PC CPU and your server CPU tells me the issue is certainly your CPU, i don't think the Celeron J1800 would do you much better, something that supports AES-NI is what you need. Regards
  10. So is 1.1.1.1 as safe as your DNS? I have a workaround thats annoying - but i'd like to keep the safest dns possible. Re:kurisu - I use archive.today.
  11. Last week
  12. Absolutely - is this the desktop client or the Android/iOS apps you're referring to? We have this as a priority just now but i can tell you when to expect it roughly by looking at our roadmap.] Regards

    WireGuard + Adblock DNS

    You should be able to set the DNS on the client side part yes
  14. Hello, It would be very helpful to give the option to make a quick test to determine which server is the fastest according to your location and the latency to the server. Usually i ping the server , or connect and do a speedtest , but a feature like this would be very helpul Thanks

    Speed suffering!!

    I can confirm that the changes tordns suggested worked for me. Thank you!
  16. 1. No you can changes to and from your residential IP, you get a unique IP that you add to client 2. Yes, you can´t have it running on more then ones client, if you can I have no idea 3. in the client the is a IP for Madrid or Valencia not sure when it is, but you do have one of them 4. Normally I see 30-60 Mbps on my residential IP in NYC Hope it helps
  17. hmm, i think i actually got transmission to work properly, i had to go into the appdata folder, local, transmission, open the settings.json file, and add the line "bind-address-ipv4": "0.0.0.0", with 0.0.0.0 being the local IP address i wish to use and it doesn't seem like transmission has any kind of bandwidth management protocol that screws things up like utorrents.. so with that line added to that text file, transmission isn't leaking what so ever (tested with "check my torrent IP" here on torguard), and if i forget to turn the VPN on, or the connection drops, it immediately drops all peers i started trying out qbtorrent though.. honestly, the interface is as clean as deluge, seems like a lightweight enough application, not a lot of bloat and crap i dont want to see like "buy the pro version" and ads, and its fully featured.. better yet i don't even need to set a static IP with it, just the interface name of the VPN saved with the windows VPN setup.. nothing else needed really and its good to go so my solution, im just going to use qbtorrent going forward.. deluge hasnt been updated in like years, nothing i do seems to work here, utorrent is too bloated and too much begging me to pay for it.. so ive uninstalled all other torrent software, and i'll just use qbtorrent
  18. so, i have torguard set to work in two ways, first is with the application, which isnt preferably because i prefer to not run third party software if it can be avoided, so the way i prefer to run it, and the way i am running it currently is through windows 10 build in VPN setup, ive added a few servers already, static IP, and the DNS servers shown on my account, and it works so, for the torrent related stuff i have binded utorrent to the local IP address i made static, but when the connection is dropped, the test torrent (in this case LMDE3 linux) continues to download, or will download when the torrent client is restarted.. disabling bandwidth management (uTP) solved that issue, so the utorrent client works perfectly however, i do not like the utorrent client, i stopped using it years ago because it becomes more and more bloated, and as someone who regularly uses linux, i've come to prefer deluge or transmission and i would like to get those to work too, transmission, but i know of no way to bind transmission to an IP address, and if i could, the issue i had with utorrent above with the broadband management may still be an issue.. with deluge, i can bind the IP, but like utorrent with broadband management enabled, it still downloads, and i do not know of a relevant setting in deluge that i can use is there any fix to deluge or transmission? or will i be stuck with the ugly, bloated interface of utorrent?

  20. Hi everyone! This is my first post on the forums, so please bear with me in case I might slip up here or there. I hope this is the correct section. I am absolutely stunned by the value TorGuard provides. Customer service has been very patient with me and enormously helpful in setting up my network, and I am thrilled that I now get speeds that are only about 4% slower than my unprotected ISP line. The only issue I have now is self-inflicted. Last fall I upgraded my 10-year old nettop that was acting as my home server to an actual fully-fledged smb server. At the time I wasn't considering VPN, and now I have the dilemma that I'm getting significantly slower speeds on the server than on the clients. I have learned from customer service that the culprit here is the CPU. So during the last week I've been running numerous tests with different servers and setups to find out how to tweak my connection. On my desktop PC (AMD-FX 8150 8-core) I don't notice any difference between VPN on or off. Even on my Dell Latitude from 2007 I got 92 Mbps on the first speedtest (it features an Intel Core 2 Duo from that era, clock speed app. 2Ghz). This is all using OpenVPN UDP AES-128-GCM and the nearest location of course. On the server unfortunately I rarely get more than 40 Mbps on a 100/50 cable line. The download got better when I fiddled around with the settings, like using TCP and AES-128-CBC, but the upload decreased a little in turn. I also tried setting up L2TP and PPTP connections manually on the OS (Windows Home Server 2011 which is actually an embedded Server 2008 R2), and surprisingly got even lower speeds most of the time. I even tried changing the MTU size according to a guide from one of your competitors, but it didn't change anything. So my question is, are there minimum CPU/system requirements in order to achieve speeds above 100 Mbps? One guy from customer support suggested a CPU with at least 2.40 Ghz, is that accurate? My server model is an HP ProLiant MicroServer N40L with a low-energy Dual-Core CPU clocked at 1.5 Ghz. I didn't expect it to carry much load, but I'm wondering about its inability to handle VPN encryption since it handles SSL encryption just fine. I hardly notice any drop in speed when downloading with NNTP over SSL. On my previous "server" this was a major issue. It had an Atom 230 that wouldn't even give me more than half my line speed without SSL. With SSL enabled, the speed would drop another 50%. Any advice would be highly appreciated. I'm currently watching an ITX system on eBay featuring a Celeron J1800 @ 2.40 Ghz which I might install in my network as a pure download/seedbox with the server only providing the storage. Of course I'd like to avoid running another machine 24/7, but I guess it's cheaper than getting a better server.

    Slow connecting to any VPN Server

    I have been getting the same error lately. Not sure why or what has changed. Also did the same as you in regards to uninstalling everything and performing a fresh install along with making sure the drivers were up to date. Also made sure torguard had a clear path through my firewall, but still have the same error. Not sure what the problem is at this point.
  22. Hey, I am using Torguard with Onedrive, Acronis Cloud and Dropbox. Absolutely no problems or errors. I didnt even set up anything special. All worked out of the box both with OpenVPN and OpenConnect.
  23. I looked around KB and this forum but still couldn't find a clear description. So a couple of questions: 1. If I buy a 'residential IP', say in NYC, will all my traffic be always routed via this IP address, regardless of where from I connect to the TorGuard network? Or do I need to connect to a specific address you give me to get this 'residential IP' service? 2. Is it true that with 'residential IP' I only get one simultaneous connection? Does it mean I can't connect to the specific IP more than once, or are all other TorGuard services blocked while I'm using this 'residential IP'? 3. What if I'm somewhere (say, Europe/Spain) and need a local connection for speed/torrents? Get another account/service? Or are there other options? 4. I'm currently in Spain, using AirVPN. When connecting to NYC (their partner is *.us.leaseweb.net) I normally see ~56 Mbps on fast.com (but streaming doesn't work). Is it reasonable to expect similar numbers when using 'residential IP' from TorGuard?
  24. Using the TorGuard VPN-provided DNS servers, occasionally I have lookup failures. Today I noticed all of FiiO's web sites failing to resolve: fiio.net fiio.com fiio.me Although their site loaded fine when accessed by its IP. The usual web-based down detectors also showed the web sites were up. I've had this before on one of my domains - nameserver failures until I did an nslookup, at which point it started resolving in a browser. However this didn't work for the fiio domains: And so on. In verbose mode: Same with secondary server, Timeouts across the board. If I specify a different nameserver, all these domains resolve instantly. However I want to keep my DNS traffic on-net while using a VPN but these timeouts obviously cause problems Are you aware of any issues with DNS @Support?
  25. Hello, I'm thinking of buying Ubiquiti Edge X and setup my OpenVPN dedicated streaming IP on it . Can I do that ? And what speed can Ubiquiti Edge X reach approximately when using using OpenVPN ? Thanks
  26. Google search brought me here. I've got windows 10 with 1809. New laptop, installing torguard got the driver conflict. I 'fixed' the issue by going to task manager ctrl-alt-del and clicking on the dropdown arrow next to Antimalware Service Executable and right clicked on Wndows Defender Antivirus and stopped the service. This allowed the driver to install. I rebooted with torguard and windows defender working nicely together.

  28. bump... PC using Torguard VPN via GL-MT300n -- how to access other PCs on the same LAN? -- PC (WIN10) connected to LAN through GL-MT300n v2 using a CAT cable -- -MT300n is setup to connect to one of the Torguard VPN servers can't see/connect to any of my LAN devices: printers other PCs (Internet through VPN works perfect) when PC is connected to LAN without GL-MT300n I can access all of my LAN devices. Thanks! PC --> Gl-MT300 (Torguard Vpn) | --> LAN <---> Other PCs
