  1. Why are socks5 proxies only in Canada? Previously we had some in Romania, Switzerland, Netherland, Sweden and maybe more. Will there be any socks5 in EU added anytime soon?
  2. For a week now, the "secureconnect.me" tunnel I use has been constantly dropping. I use this for low bandwidth applications, like Facebook, Slack, gmail, etc. Constantly having it drop off in the middle of conversations is aggravating. Is anyone else encountering this? Have you opened a ticket and gotten a response? This has been ongoing, on and off, now over some months: For weeks it'll be fine, and then, like now, all day I get proxy errors, and after 5-15 minutes, it's back for awhile, and then down.
  3. Hi, I am new to torguard and proxy for torrent as a whole. I followed the instructions on https://torguard.net/knowledgebase.php?action=displayarticle&id=241 with the settings as described and got no connection at all. I switched to uTP and got the connection back. I am wondering if this will affect the proxy or even my speed. In addition, is there any settings I can tweak to increase the speed of my torrents? Any help is appreciated, thank you in advance!
  4. Hello everybody How to use TorGuard's Streaming IP only in browser without tunneling?
  5. I set up proxy settings in Firefox on Linux (and Windows 10) as per these instructions: https://torguard.net/blog/how-to-setup-an-anonymous-proxy-with-firefox-or-internet-explorer/ After restarting Firefox it asked for my Torguard credentials, but all the "What's my IP address" checkers still show my real ISP IP address. Shouldn't it show the proxy? If so, what other tests can I try?
  6. 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: Error: Connection timed out", or " Error: Success, TorGuard Netherlands Socks5 Proxy Connected." but downloading always continues. I did a test and changed proxy.torguard.org to 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 " 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 " 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: 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?
  7. Hi all... When configuring TorGuard client (v3.97.4 for Windows) I was hoping that the proxy configuration tab would allow me to specify our company's proxy firewall so the VPN connection would go through from our local network to the outside world. Maybe I'm mistaken, as now it seems to me that the whole purpose of that tab is to specify outside proxies as additional layer of privacy. Currently I'm able to connect using the OpenVPN GUI software, with proxy configuration set like this: Manual Configuration, HTTP Proxy, IP of my internal network proxy 10.xx.xx.xx port 8080. This is the same settings we have to configure in the windows internet connection settings for Google chrome to work or in Firefox's Network connection options. The company's proxy allows connections to certain websites to go through without authentication, but for most it prompts users for username and password (browser popup). Still they block sites like youtube and facebook for instance. Using VPN allows me to bypass these restrictions and the only port I seem to be able to connect through is 443... meaning, in OpenVPN GUI I specify http proxy IP and port 8080, and use a configuration file .ovpn with the remote vpn server that tells it to connect the remote address on port 443 like this: "remote 443" (This is the IP of br.torguardvpnaccess.com). Strangely if I connect like this, the company's firewall and proxy will gladly connect without even asking for credentials, as if their rules allow this connection, but if I specify the actual domain name like this "remote br.torguardvpnaccess.com 443" it will ask for credentials. If a valid company credential is entered it still connects the VPN. Now... back to TorGuard client... I would very much like to use it, since it's interface is nicer and makes it easier to select different countries to connect and even select port 443 as an option, but like I said, apparently the connection is not made through our corporate firewall/proxy even if it's configured in the proxy tab. Also I'd like to know if it's possible to modify it so it connects using the IP address of the destination server instead of it's name, so I would not net to supply local proxy credentials. Bellow are the logs of OpenVPN GUI that work. Is there a way I can set up TorGuard client to be able to connect in my environment? Currently it won't connect in any way I attemped to confire it.

  8. After using uTorrent 2.2.1 forever, I had a torrent with larger piece size that it could not handle, so I decided to try the newest version of uTorrent. Everything transferred over fine, my settings were all the same as well as my seeding torrents, but I can not get it to work with this proxy at all. It works on public trackers, and it works on all trackers with the proxy disabled, but I can't connect to seed or download on any private trackers. All of them give me a Proxy Connect Error Offline. All of my settings, ports, login, etc. have all been double checked as the same as in 2.2.1 to no avail. Can anyone help?
  9. Hello ! first time poster here ! i recently upgraded from VDSL to Fiber optic internet with 200Mbit up/down speed, and i thought i should give back to the internet after being a filthy leecher ;/ and decided to purchase 3 months of Torrent Proxy to stay on the safe side with my torrent activity, that said, i am monitoring my web traffic using pihole after configuring SOCK5 proxy on qBitTorrent(used the guide provided on TorGuard), and so far it's been good but i can't help but notice that some trackers are making direct queries instead of going through torguard's ! and i have "Disable connections not supported by proxies" option ticked in qBittorent. ex: https://imgur.com/a/FyyHMAP what should i do ? i don't want to remove those trackers as they're one of the active peer sources. thanks in advance !
  10. I'm having an issue with the Polish VPN Proxy. I'm thinking it needs an upgrade to better hide the IP, or some dynamic IPs at the endpoint. For years, I've been using an app on my RPIs via Kodi that includes the TVN Player. http://sd-xbmc.org/pl TVN Player has always had georestrictions in place, so you have to "be in" Poland to use the application from either the web site or the application. Seems like it works fine via web-site http://player.pl if I'm connected to VPN, but I can't get it to work via the Kodi application any longer. I'm guessing that they've blocked the subnet or the ip address to stop our use of VPN. To fix my problems, I've moved over to using OpenVPN instead of just the HTTP Proxy, but even that is being blocked I'm wondering if anyone can assist or whether Torguard can beef up their Proxy services at the Poland endpoint to help bypass their countermeasures. Thanks in advance.
  11. Does anyone use this software and have any insight at all? I don't use it often but it's my preferred method if I have to find something old or rare to listen to. Will just having a normal torguard vpn running protect privacy or does the client itself leak our information? Is there a process to setting up vpn, soulseekqt, or both to keep our data safe?
  12. Okay, so I've done a lot of reading, it's safe to say. I asked tech support on the live chat, however, I think I had just too many questions and information and didn't know what answers I really needed. From the top. I purchased Torguard in an effort to torrent, without getting the little notices that say 'hey, knock that sh** off.' I have gotten two copyright infringement notices from ATT so far, rather, the owner of the connection has. I've since had to work my way back to actually getting the logins (albeit not through her) and I don't want to get her into any more trouble. That being said. I've read, I learned Torguard was rated highly for VPN & torrenting, and I got the anonymous proxy to go with it. There is a plethora of information out there but nothing that I can completely wrap my head around, even having a strong working knowledge of computers since Windows 95 and B&W monitors. I'm not new, but I am new to this. I understand the VPN software is an easy little click and its supposedly on, I can verify to some extent that it is working, but I cannot be sure that it remains connected or that the connection drops with the VPN - which I am not even sure of how to notice if it drops! There are ***proxy*** configuration pages for different torrent programs, but I don't see information on port forwarding, or setting up the connection to the VPN directly, and the ones that I do see have equally as many posts complaining that they have leaks due to the connection dropping and the client using data outside the vpn tunnel. I don't need a 100% hand walkthrough, but a guide or video that points to the answers would be awesome. Answers that aren't immediately thwarted by one thing or another - proper configuration for my situation, I suppose. The ISP is ATT Uverse, they have provided a 5268AC, which I connect to through a wireless adapter to ethernet (connection is faster, idk why, it just is). I am running Comodo Firewall on the machine and I would like to use bitcomet or something similar, because I would like to have access to the KAD network. I have been trying to figure this out for hours and I can't...I know I need to open ports, I don't know where to do that, the concept just plain eludes me right now, and I know this stuff well enough to be dangerous but apparently not well enough to be safe! HELP! Please, and thank you!
  13. Hey so i paid for a Proxy specifically. After I completed the purchase... I downloaded it, and only have the option of running a VPN. I was needing a proxy though. Can someone please help me figure this out.? Thank you, Trevor.
  14. Does anyone know of a way to configure Synology's Download Station with Torguard Proxy? It does not appear to have a configuration interface on which to do that...
  15. 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.
  16. I subscriped to TorGuard as i was a bit paranoid about torrenting. I use Vuze on windows 10. I followed all the steps for the socks proxy however it always shows as inactive. I noticed when i download a torrent, nothing uploads. Is it normal for it to show up as inactive. And is their also a method i could use to confirm if i am actually anonymous. Thank you and sorry i am a noob.
  17. Requirements openwrt (or any openwrt based firmware like LEDE openwrt) tor libevent2-openssl libevent2 libminiupnpc libnatpmp tor-geoip (optional) tor-fw-helper (optional) Description In this guide I will install and create tor on my openwrt router. My Wireless is isolated. You can change these setting as you wish, take only care that nobody from outside can reach your LAN's. At the end of this post is a script doing everything for you. You need only to adapt the script for your settings. For this guide, my router's lan ip is This setup works for those who do use only proxy/socks product, vpn products or mix of them. It is very high grade of anonimity if all this works in some VPN, like TorGuard's which does work perfectly! What will we have at the end of this setup tor socks5 server on router's lan IP:9050 (in this example (you can set your system, browser or anything else to use socks5 which goes always over tor) Simple usage by joining WLAN (no need to setup anything on any device) set specific LAN port to go always through Tor, (especially usefull for those who use C-Lines for Card Sharing) Isolated Wireless Network (which is secured and can't communicate with LAN devices) Traffic is sent through TorGuard's proxy/socks5 (all tor's traffic sent through socks ot https proxy, Torguard Proxy port: 6060, TorGuard socks5 ports: 1080/1085/1090) (in this guide, we set only .onion and .exit urls to go over tor, all other pages will go over TorGuard's socks/proxy used by tor) (We also restrict usage on port 80 and 443 for the case that you need to hide from your ISP/VPN provder, TorGuard does not block) (if you are not using VPN, then you do hide the traffic from your ISP in using socks and from your socks provider by using only ports 80/443) (even if this setup is higly secure, consider using as addition obfsproxy which I will not cover in this guide) (socks5/proxy acts also as a fallback if your VPN stops working) This setup works if you are connected to a VPN (like TorGuard and openvpn, my router is currently in TorGuard's VPN) Installation of required packages: opkg update opkg install libevent2-openssl libevent2 libminiupnpc libnatpmp tor tor-fw-helper tor-geoip Create Tor interface with static IP 172.x.x.x Create DHCP server for tor interface Create 5Ghz and 2,4Ghz isolated wireless interfaces Add firewall zone and configure firewall for tor Configure tor with TorGuard services Download geoip and geoipv6 Reboot your router Script installing tor requirements, creating interface, configuring firewall If you are connected with TorGuards VPN and everything runs over VPN, then your tor might be inactive if it starts before openvpn during the boot because openvpn changes routes and tor needs to be restarted. In this case you can edit openvpn's start scripts, or tor's startscripts or simply adding this command under System->Startup section "Local Startup" # Put your custom commands here that should be executed once # the system init finished. By default this file does nothing. sleep 10 /etc/init.d/tor reload /etc/init.d/tor restart exit 0 How to get geoip and geoipv6 files TorGuard works blazing fast with Tor Network (!!!TORGUARD TEAM IS AMAZING, THANKS FOR GREAT SERVICES!!!) Thats it, enjoy tor network.
  18. I have been unable to get the proxy working with my uTorrent client. Below, I have attached an image of my setup. I am using the exact credentials for the proxy authentication as I do for this website. I am able to connect to torrents with my real connection, but I am not when I activate the proxy. What am I doing wrong? http://imgur.com/a/l7SSV EDIT: I solved my own problem. Interestingly enough, I used the knowledge base to try to solve my issue before coming to the forum and it appears the document is inaccurate. https://torguard.net/knowledgebase.php?action=displayarticle&id=12 That article says this: For the proxy field use: proxy.torguard.org (you can also use a specific proxy IP of choice from HERE) The solution was to go to the following page and explicitly choose one to load into my uTorrent config: https://torguard.net/socksproxyserverstatus.php
  19. a public tracker is constantly timing out, just wondering if there is a solution for this? couldnt find it in the forums. the tracker status says 'connection timed out'. read a bunch of stuff that says i need to have torguard port forward something but im not sure what port. any help would be appreciated
  20. I'm having a hard time understanding what the viscosity is for and how it works differently the torguard. When I open Viscosity I can see all the servers I can connect to including PPTP and L2TP but I cant connect to them because I am already connected to the VPN app by torguard. In some tutorials like the one where I can exclude certain IP addresses (which I need) it tells me to use Viscosity and duplicate a connection and exclude it there and thats it I dont even have to connect to it, or setting up a killswitch which I just found out I can do with the Torguard App. I also have options to connect to connection automatically through Viscosity but I already have the VPN app set to connect automatically and also configured with the proxies. Soo are they essentially the same thing? Can I just use Viscosity and not use the Torguard app? Also when would I have to set up an L2TP or PPTP? Is just having torguard enough to protect my privacy along with setting up the proxies for bitorrent and browsers? Also the only reason I even needed viscosity is to exclude the ip address of this game I play because I was getting huge ping lag and support told me to use viscosity and different dns
  21. 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
  22. Hi, I am new to using the torrent proxy. Have set it up correctly in utorrent and tested it and all works fine - except when I begin to download. My usual download speed is 2 - 3 mb/s, with the proxy on I"m crawling to 1.3mb/s at best and usually way, way less. It seems very erratic. Sometimes it stalls completely. Is this to be expected? - using proxy.torguard.org on port 1090 - when proxy is on, Incoming TCP port has "Connection Status:Not connectable" If this matters? Any help greatly appreciated !!! Thank you~~
  23. Hi, I am trying to setup Deluge, following the guide https://torguard.net/knowledgebase.php?action=displayarticle&id=40 I am also testing with CheckMyTorrentIP http://torguard.net/checkmytorrentipaddress.php I get the message "Success, Your torrent client IP is: nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn" But the "Test Active Port" fails (Config -> Network -> Incoming Ports) and the main GUI gives me a "No incoming connections" and the torrent does not download. (tests have been performed with the firewall down) Any suggestions appreciated. Thank you.
  24. I noticed that TorGuard offers 5x simultaneous connections for their services, which I would assume means they offer for TorGuard Proxy as well. What I am interested in is understanding what this means, or how it works, for TorGuard Proxy. Does this mean that I can be connected to the proxy service from 5 different IP addresses? Does this mean that a total number of logins limited to 5 and if so does that limit uTorrent to only 5 connections total? Does each Torrent take up a login -- even if all of them are being managed from the same client? My goal for understanding how this works is so that I can run two uTorrent clients simultaneously so that one client can run on my HTPC/Plex Box and another can run on my laptop that I use from different locations. I just don't understand fully how this would effect my connections though. Any explanation and clarification would greatly be appreciated.
  25. I want to use my PS4 with Netflix USA (I'm in the UK), while it's not a problem for my browser, chrome and firefox, they won't play movies with 5.1 audio. The PS4 however will stream 5.1 BUT while the Ps4 has a proxy setting, it doesn't have a username or password input for the proxy server. Does anyone have any idea how I can use a proxy server (even a local one) with the PS4? I can setup a proxy server on my PC, but that server has to support fetching from a proxy too. TIA Daz
