  1. Hello, I am on the TorGuard VPN client and Windows (and browsers) still see my real location. If I go here https://ipleak.net/ is see my local IP and the VPN IP. It says I have a webRTC leak. I assume their is a chrome extension that can help for my chrome browser....but I am more concerned with Windows location still seeing where I am. Any advice? Thanks

    MLB.TV with Anonymous VPN

    Is anyone able to watch MLB.TV streaming games over Anonymous VPN this season? Any game I attempt to watch I get a regional blackout error. I attempted Chicago, Toronto, Turkey, and Iceland servers, all with the same results. I was able to watch games over Anonymous VPN last season.

    Fraud Status

    Hi, I just bought TorGuard VPN annual service. When I logged in to my account the status says “FRAUD”. At the time I registered I was using my current vpn provider via a vpn server in Mexico. Can you either remove the “fraud” status or cancel my account, and all charges, immediately?
  4. This is a how-to configure PMS and Torguard VPN running under a Synology NAS on DSM 6.1.4 in 10 EASY steps. This assumes the following: * You have Plex Media Server installed on your Synology box. * You'll need to open port 32400 on your router. * PMS will need to be configured for remote access with a manually-specified port (32400). * This uses a VPN configuration run from your Synology box, and not your router. Step 1: Configure the Synology VPN connection as instructed here: https://torguard.net/knowledgebase.php?action=displayarticle&id=237 Step 2: Connect to said VPN, and find out what your external IP is by going to Synology Control Panel > External Access > DDNS > Add > External address (IPv4) and copying the IP address there. If you have DDNS configured, it'll show up on the list of DDNS service providers and you don't need to go into the Add menu. Step 3: Log in to your torguard.net account and go to https://torguard.net/tgconf.php?action=vpn-openvpnconfig to make a new OpenVPN config file with the following parameters: Hostname/IP "Custom" > use the IP you obtained from Step 2 Protocol TCP Port of your choice, but take note as you'll need to give this again in Step 5 Encryption Cipher should be something with CBC (make sure you use CBC, as DSM doesn't seem to support GCM) Click on Generate Config Save this somewhere you can get to it later. Step 4: While you're in torguard.net, go to the Client Area > Management Actions > Request Port Forward Step 5: Request the following: Protocol TCP Port 32400, click + IP Address: the IP you got from Step 2 Protocol: TCP Encryption: something similar to the port/cipher above in Step 3 Click on "Submit Request" and wait a few minutes (might take longer if you're doing this at 2am and there's nobody to comply with your request); once the Status goes to green and "Active" your port is now open and available. If it says "The port tcp:32400 on ***.***.***.*** is already used on the requested server - please choose a different IP or port." then you're all set here. Step 6: On your Synology DSM, go ahead and create a new VPN connection using the new config file you created in Step 3. Step 7: Restart PMS using the Package Center. Once it restarts, click on the URL in the package, and ensure the server successfully signs in under Settings > General Step 8: Connect to the VPN. Step 9: On your browser (ideally on a network outside your home), navigate to https://app.plex.tv/ Step 10: Enjoy your media! Notes: * It's important that you select Custom in the OpenVPN config generator. If you use any of the pre-determined hostnames, the IP provided may not be the correct IP with the open port, and the connection will fail. * If the external VPN IP changes, you'll need to do this again from Step 1, although I'm told that the IP shouldn't change. Any feedback is welcome and appreciated!
  5. I got a Socks5 error while i was downloading a torrent on vuze. I was using a VPN at the same time. Will the vpn protect me from risk and exposure despite the socks5 proxy failing. The Socks5 icon went from green to yellow at the bottom of vuze however the routing icon sayed green throughout. Sorry im new to this. Thank you answers appreciated.
  6. I have experienced what seems to be a bug in TorGuard on iOS devices: If I enter a wrong password or user name, TorGuard will keep retrying to connect and will refuse to disconnect, effectively hijacking the device's entire network connection. You will need to kill VPN entirely on the device to regain control of your network. I have had it happen on both an iPhone and an iPad. Has anyone else seen this?
  7. Requirements: openconnect vpnc vpnc-scripts Install requirements: Ubuntu/Raspbian # Update repository sudo apt-get update # Install openconnect and vpnc scripts sudo apt-get install openconnect vpnc-scripts -y Openwrt/Lede (current available openconnect does not work, you need to compile your own) # Update repository opkg update # Install openconnect and vpnc scripts opkg install openconnect vpnc-scripts Connect to VPN: Method 1 (password stored in a file) (password is stored in plain text) # Method 1 - Password stored in file sudo openconnect -u YourUsername --authgroup=DEFAULT -b --passwd-on-stdin --cafile=/home/pi/torguard/ca.crt --servercert=YourServerCert --pfs Server:Port </home/pi/torguard/userpass.txt Method 2 (pass password in command) (password is in plain text) # Method 2 - Pass password echo YourPass | sudo openconnect -u YourUsername --authgroup=DEFAULT -b --passwd-on-stdin --cafile=/home/pi/torguard/ca.crt --servercert=YourServerCert --pfs Server:Port My results with Raspberry Pi 3 Model B on factory system is 20/20Mb/s during Kodi was running full HD stream. With openconnect, RaspberryPi can be used as streaming service with high vpn encryption provided by TorGuard. Autostart - Method 1 There are plenty of vpnc scripts which can be used. In case of Raspberry Pi 3 Model B, it has onboard WLAN which does not perform very well, I don't get 20Mb/s with it. Connecting USB Wireless N did not solve the issue as it seems that RPi does not provide enough power to get more out of WLAN. For that reason I used external USB HUB with own power supply providing with power wireless or any other device, so that Raspberry itself has enough power. I ran into second problem. Without additional installation or manuall commands typing in terminal, you can't use second wlan that easy. Many suggest methods like to install some additional software for managing wireless, where I do not need onboard wireless at all to boot with the OS. But disabling it turns out often for newbies that they don't remember how to turn it on. That is the reason why I do suggest a very simple method for newbies, especially those who never did deal with this topics before. Using Raspeberry's LAN port is not a problem. I do get 90Mb/s, which is actually almost 100% what 100Mb/Lan card can offer. LAN is always preferable if possible. I will keep this example for the factory delivery of RPi and reffer to Raspberry Pi 3 Model B in this guide. Requirements: CA certificate from TorGuard. You can get it here. Save your password for VPN service into file in plain text, I will use this path in this guide /home/pi/torguard/onlypass-plain.txt Server's fingerprint (SHA1). (If you don't know how to find it, connect manually without and it will print sha1 fingerprint) (you can also always ask TorGuard support for assistance) XTERM xterm is not installed by default, you can install it with this command: sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install xterm -y Create a script to start openconnect in new terminal window Path in this guide: /home/pi/Desktop/tg.sh Example of tg.sh: sudo openconnect --verbose --pid-file=/var/run/openconnect.pid -u demouser --authgroup=DEFAULT -b --reconnect-timeout=200 --passwd-on-stdin --cafile=/home/pi/torguard/ca.crt --servercert=FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF --pfs 1.2.3.4:22 </home/pi/torguard/onlypass-plain.txt Create a script for autostarting VPN connection on boot. Path in this guide: /home/pi/Desktop/autostart-openconnect-at-sharedip.sh Because we need separate terminal window where we always can see what is going on, we need to start VPN after desktop has been loaded. There are several ways to achive it, but one simple is xterm: sleep 20 sudo xterm -e "bash /home/pi/Desktop/tg.sh;bash" Xterm starts a new window running a script where new terminal window is not closed after sh command has been run, because if it closes, you closed your VPN connection. Here I use 20 seconds to wait until everything loads or vpn will fail to connect. It works also with 10 seconds, but I would not recommend lower value. For more advanced setups, please use vpnc scripts. Edit LXDE session start script for current user Path to start script: /home/pi/.config/lxsession/LXDE-pi/autostart Add command to run a a script autoconnecting to VPN, add to : /home/pi/.config/lxsession/LXDE-pi/autostart Here I do disable onboard wlan0 because I use USB device and if you don't do that, then VPN will connect over wlan0. sudo ifconfig wlan0 down # Disable onboard Wifi @sudo /home/pi/Desktop/autostart-openconnect-at-sharedip.sh # Connect correctly over wlan1 (Here we have second time sudo, but it will not harm anything, it will only ensure, that if you forget sudo in your tg.sh, then autostart will still work) (You need to have root privileges to be able to access vpns folder) Reboot I hope it helps some newbies to get started with this amazing VPN service. On factory RPi and openconnect, I get 30Mb on download constantly which is great result and is enough for almost anything, including streaming in HD. Those who have/need faster connections, they will need to buy better device. But all in all, you can use RPi as Media Center together with IPTV behind TorGuards VPN and it is working very well, everything works very stable. This is much better replacement for any smart tv around and costs barely € 35. I think there is no cheaper device performing better for this price. If you know any, please show me the results, I would love to test them. Once again, TorGuard, thank you very much for such a great service!

  9. Hello all. I upgraded from 380.61 to 380.65. Has anybody gotten the VPN to work with the new version? I applied all of the regular settings but i need a few new options. I looked in the logs and saw the following below.

  10. Not bad at all for simply connecting but as you see, even connecting to torguard brings issues if your ISP is spying on you. This is very good example of something, where other tests show you that everyhing is ok but this test clearly shows you that your ISP is hijacking DNS. You need to have Java installed on your pc to run these tests, it does not work in chrome, but on firefox it does even if using combination of proxifier and foxyproxy (because java tool does all the job, not the browser itself) TEST NOW WITH ANALYZR Good article in german explaining it a little bit and includes the test itself. Send your tests to TorGuard support, they will help you very fast with any leaks, problems or even unintentionally missconfigured device like to open ports which you do not want at all opened. Here is one example (it provides a link which you can send to torguard support if your tests show any issues): More test results (example):
  11. The TG Vpn update of November 19, 2016 has somehow changed my Adapter Settings for my ethernet, wfi, and it's very own TAP windows adapter settings affecting no response from the DNS Server. So basically, I could not connect to the internet (by ethernet or wifi) and I figured it out by myself on how to fix the issue. I had to make sure that I had to change IPv4 and IPv6 Settings on said adapters to obtain IPv4 and IPv6 addresses and DNS Server Addresses automatically and it would fix the issue... BUT then the settings would change so I have to figure out which adapter had the settings changed, whether be it TG (TAP) adapter or my own Ethernet or wifi adapters, I have to manually fix it. Is this some kind of glitch??? or error?
  12. Hi, I made this Script to start uTorrent after 60 seconds while my VPN Connection is trying to connect. timeout 15 start c:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\uTorrent\uTorrent.exe exit Since I noticed it takes some time to get my Dedicated IP address. TorGuard started the Script a little to early I hope someone have use for it Best Regards, BrooBee
  13. Hi everybody, As a linux n00b and first time poster on this forum I wanted to share my experiences and gained knowledge setting up a VPN on OpenElec. The main reason I wanted to set op a VPN-client on my raspberry Pi was to watch BBC iPlayer from outside the UK. I tried xBian but got into trouble with some DNS-stuff and the TUN adapter. So I flashed openELEC on it and tried again. Setting Up Raspberry Pi 1 Windows 7 PC ExtraPutty Winrar Notepad++ Filezilla Win32 disk imager OpenELEC-RPi.arm-6.95.3 8GB SD card Tips & trics for linux n00bs: You can use TAB to autofill folders the command pwd gives you the current folder name the command ls gives a list of files in the current folder the command cd ~ brings you to your home folder When the terminal looks frozen after running a command, use CTRL+C to return. OpenElec installation First download the latest beta version of openELEC for the Raspberry Pi, then extract the .img file to a folder. Use Win32 disk imager to write the .img to the SD card. Insert the SD card into the raspberry pi and supply power to the device. Complete the wizard. Get the openvpn files Download the openvpn config files from TorGuard HERE and unzip them somewhere. I only needed the TorGuard.UK.London.ovpn files and isolated this one to my desktop. Open the file in Notepad++ and look for: auth-user-pass replace this by: auth-user-pass /storage/login.txt I read somewhere that the TorGuard ovpn files got he incorrect line endings and need to be changed to the Linux EOL. To do this in notepad++, Edit -> EOL Conversion -> Convert to UNIX format. Save the file as all files and rename it to: TorGuard.UK.London.conf Then create a new file in notepad++ and insert yout TorGoard username and password on two lines. [email protected] TGpassword Convert the line endings as stated above and save as, all files, login.txt SSH into the device Make sure your windows computer is connected to the same network as the Raspberry Pi, preferably wired. Find the IP-address of raspberry pi and write it down. (System -> System info -> Network) My IP-address was 192.168.178.30 but your's is definitely different. Open extraputty and insert the IP-address, tick SSH and click "OPEN". A black console should appear asking for a login. If not, upgrade the putty client and check connection with raspberry pi. The password and username are as following: login: root password: openelec congratulations! you're connected to the raspberry pi. Overclock Raspberry pi (optional) I got a Raspberry pi version 1, so speed is a bit of a problem. To overclock the device use: mount /flash -o remount,rw nano /flash/config.txt Look for the line: arm_freq=700 core_freq=250 and replace this by: arm_freq=800 core_freq=300 reboot the device to see the effects. Getting openvpn OpenELEC doesn't have apt-get so you need some hassle to get openvpn. I'ts in the unofficial repository so lets download it. I copy pasted the steps from here, to prevent link rot I also post them here. Make sure you are connected to the internet for this steps. * Open Kodi * Select SYSTEM > File Manager * Select Add Source * Select None * Type the following EXACTLY http://fusion.tvaddons.ag and select Done * Highlight the box underneath Enter a name for this media Source & type fusion * Select OK * Go back to your Home Screen* Select SYSTEM * Select Add-Ons * Select Install from zip file * Select fusion * Select xbmc-repos * Select english * Select repository.metalkettle-x.x.x.zip * Wait for Add-on enabled notification * Select Install from repository or Get Add-Ons on Helix * Select MetalKettles Addon Repository * Select Program add-ons * Select openvpn * Select Install * Wait for Add-on enabled notification * Select VPN for OpenELEC * Select Install * Wait for Add-on enabled notification Copy files to raspberry pi I use Filezilla to transfer files from the Windows computer to the raspberry PI. Open Filezilla HOST: sftp://192.168.178.30 (insertyour own IP) USERNAME: root PASSWORD: openelec quickconnect Drag and drop the TorGuard.UK.London.conf file from the Windows computer in the storage folder. Do the same with the login.txt file. Test the VPN connection SSH into the device using extraPutty, insert root/openelec and you are in the terminal. First test if openvpn is installed: openvpn --help When you see alot of commands and information pop-up, congratulations. then test the VPN connection: openvpn /storage/TorGuard.UK.London.conf When you see: Initialization Sequence Completed the connection is established. To test if the external IP-address is foreign use: openvpn /storage/TorGuard.UK.London.conf & wget http://ipinfo.io/ip -qO - The result is an IP-address you can check online to see if it's foreign. Run on Startup To run the line of code on startup openelec is different from other linux distro's. It uses a file called autostart.sh to tun things. run this to edit/create the file: nano /storage/.config/autostart.sh insert this into the file: ( openvpn /storage/TorGuard.UK.London.conf ) & CTRL-X to save and exit. reboot reboot the system and test the connection. DONE!
  14. I'm trying to follow this guide to forward a port for torrenting purposes, but it doesn't mention anything about a VPN. I've have a UDP port open in my Torguard dashboard with a pinned VPN IP. What do I do from here? On a side note, I've seen it recommended that you shouldn't open a port via your router, however as far as I can this is what the guide linked to above instructs you to do. Is the guide dangerous, or am I misunderstanding?
  15. A noob question- can we enable file sharing and network discovery, along with Torguard? This is for streaming media over at home, and printer sharing? Or does it have any risk with VPN?
  16. Hello, I subscribed your 1 month VPN service and I'm doing some tests to see if I will subscribe the annual plan. But before that I need to know some things. I thought that with the VPN service I would hide my traffic form my ISP service, but I'm seeing in the ISP web page that the downloaded data still counts. Is there anything that I need to configure, or use some other apps to hide the traffic from my ISP, or is that not possible? Another question, which is the best server that I should choose, does it make any sense a server form my own country? or the nearest? Thanks Best Regards ASilva

    Netflix (other than usa)

    Hi, Is there anyway of using the vpn service to access netflix from different regions. Not just the USA but other regions such as Japan and Brazil. (Japanese one has a lot of content not on usa) I understand that you can purchase static ips for these regions but this is at an extra cost. Is there anyway to get around the netfix 'you seem to be using a proxy/unblocker service' error message with the current vpn servers?
  18. TorGuard Overlords, With the allowance of 5 simultaneous logins per account, is there any scope to create a unique username/password for these logins? Having the ability to add sub-logins would allow family members/etc to be given VPN access which can easily be revoked at a later date should the need arise. Currently, requiring the primary account holder to do a password reset to achieve the same outcome is a nuisance and requires additional overhead that could be removed with this new feature. For your consideration eikcam
  19. My office building's public WiFi blocks VPN connections. I was never able to connect to my former VPN host when on that network. I hoped that TorGuard's Stealth mode would solve this problem for me. Unfortunately, TorGuard VPN will not connect when I am connected to my office WiFi. I am using the Windows TG client. I have tried selecting the Los Angeles "Stealth" connection, both with and without the manual Stealth Proxy option. I have tried selecting other US connections, both with and without the Stealth Proxy option. Nothing works. The client just cycles between WAIT -> AUTH -> RECONNECTING endlessly. (When I'm not on my office WiFi, I have no problem getting TorGuard to connect properly.) I submitted a ticket to TorGuard Support, but they have been unhelpful. Anyone have any ideas what I can try? Are there log files for the Windows TG client that I can examine to see if there are any clues?
  20. I've not been able to setup Torbrowser, the Onion project with either my proxy or VPN. Has anyone figured out a way to accomplish this Either User > Proxy/VPN > Tor Network or User > Tor Network > Proxy/VPN
  21. Hello How some forums and torrent tracker know that I to use VPN? It happened to me that I was banned from one torrent tracker because I used VPN... all IP addresses that from torguard this torrent tracker recognized that is not my real IP address, and persistently sought to me that I log once from right address, Of course I did not agree to give them real ip... The same situation so with some forums... Screenshot for forum that I wanted today register: http://uploadpie.com/coSt3 I test my DNS Leak via http://torguard.net/vpn-dns-leak-test.phpand https://www.dnsleaktest.com/ and it shows that everything is OK...I also have WebRTC disabled I do not know why all my torguard address some web sites detected as spam,it is normal that becaose some web pages used advanced protection? Sorry for bad Eneglish Thanks
  22. Hi, I used TG Pro software. My problem is when connection drop, TG software should show the message that VPN disconnected or somethings like that. I though problem was reconnect option and disable it. I am very confused now. Because software sometimes show the message that TG is dc and sometime don't. Reconnect option is disable but not working!!! I reinstall program, disable firewall and ....but can't find the solution. it's important for me because i use Kill Switch option. When software showing the message Kill Switch works truly, otherwise its not working. someone can help?

  25. When I wasn't using a VPN or proxy my average dowload speeds on Bittorrent was averaging 1.2MB-1.5MB per second. Since buying the VPN Pro with Torguard I am average 115kb per second, if I am lucky to even get the download to start. I have tried all the "Bittorrent Optimized" servers, what a joke, and followed every setup guide on this site and still no change. Tech support isn't any help. Anyone know and can explain how the hell I fix this before I cancel my subscription. Thanks.
