  1. Was looking to find the best balanced settings for Torguard providing the most security with only a reasonable hit to throughput but could not find much details online. I decided to run some throughput tests on a few combinations of settings to determine the best option. The tests were done using speedtest.net using the same fixed remote server for all tests. In Torguard using the pin feature, I also fixed the VPN server IP for all tests. Throughput obviously varied based on server/ISP load but not by much. Also any test combinations where the numbers seemed to not make sense, I verified
  2. Hi, Can someone confirm the DNS servers used by Torguard VPN? I am getting IPS alerts for non-compliant DNS traffic and it looks like it may be from Torguard clients in my LAN using SecureDNS. I would like to whitelist the DNS servers used by Torguard. Thanks.
  3. If a user selects Cloudflare or Google DNS in the client, does TorGuard connect to their services via DNS over TLS or DNS over HTTPS? This would be a huge privacy feature for TorGuard users.
  4. I recently started using the ad blocking DNS servers on TG. It makes a huge difference in browser performance as the ad-blocking at the DNS level prevents a lot of the adware leeches from sucking up your memory and CPU. Even pop-ups have ads disabled in them and sites don't seem to know that their ads are being block. No "Please disable your ad-blocker" messages. The only feature request I would ask from the @Support team is the ability for users to contribute blocking lists or show the list of trackers that currently being blocked. Otherwise a great feature. For anyone who wants

    Warning: DNS Leaks

    Attention: TorGuard foreign servers in Switzerland and Iceland are leaking DNS data traceable to a US-based IP address. These connections are NOT secure. Please remember to ALWAYS use https://www.dnsleaktest.com to verify a secure connection.
  9. for the fields under the Network tap->DNS, i'm curious what others use here when adding their choice of DNS servers, like from OpenNIC, dnscrypt, etc? best practice to ensure anon DNS lookups and such. tia
  10. Looks like a nice 🕳ï¸, what's going on ? Since today I see more than 1 DNS server on DNS leak, these are all torguards, which I actually really like to see 8.0.11.12 DNS-8-0-11-15.Chicago1.Level3.net Level 3 Communications United States 8.0.11.15 cns3.Chicago2.Level3.net Level 3 Communications United States 8.0.11.0 DNS-8-0-11-8.Chicago1.Level3.net Level 3 Communications United States 8.0.10.6 DNS-8-0-11-11.Chicago1.Level3.net Level 3 Communications United States 8.0.10.11 DNS-8-0-11-9.Chicago1.Level3.net Level 3 Communications
  11. Check DNS requests guide (webarchive) In previous guide, I described how to get rid of your ISP or any other service (even TorGuard itself) hijacking your DNS (webarchive) In this topic I will show how you simply can find out what exactly is going on with port 53 which is default DNS port. Requierments HowTo/Wiki/Links Please read about tcpdump usage and how to on github, I will show here one exampe where I do check DNS requests on tun0 which is my openvpn tunnel connected to TorGuard. You can filter the command from the codebox below, but for simplicity, here
  12. I have posted already how to prevent hijacking of your DNS by your IP. There are some ISP's like Verizon, T-Mobile, ... which do send all traffic over port 53 (yes, they hijack your DNS), regardless of which DNS servers you use. Here is how to get rid of that and redirect it to some another address with help of iptables instead editing dnsmasq in WebIF (which is still my preferable solution for most tasks), in this example I'll redirect all dns requests to my custom dns server, to lan1 in this case, which is my local DNS Server Openwrt (I think ddwrt should work too, but I did not
  13. 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
  14. Hello, I'm trying to keep my DNS servers pointed to the TG servers: 104.223.91.194 104.223.91.210 91.121.113.58 91.121.113.7 In order to do this, I wrote a script for OSX #!/bin/bash sleep 5 networksetup -setdnsservers Wi-Fi 104.223.91.194 104.223.91.210 91.121.113.58 91.121.113.7 the script file has permissions: -r-xr-xr-x 1 username staff In some reason it doesn't set DNS after connection automatically. It requires me to run in manually with sudo from command line. Any idea what how to achieve that?

    DNS Problem

    Hello everyone, I'm on Ubuntu 16 and I have having a problem with the DNS on ipleak.net. When I use it on windows it will show the server in either france or sweden (I usually use stockholm). When I use it on here it shows around 20 or so IP's from the US. They are different than what I get when I don't use torguard however. The method I use is network connections, edit, ipv4, then I add the additional servers. It might have to do with this tunn connection that I see. Anyone have any ideas?

    Smart dns release date?

    When will smart dns be released?
  17. TorGuard V 0.3.47 Debian jessie ISP AT&T I can't stop AT&T from hijacking my DNS requests. When I first connect with TorGuard (stop DNS blocking enabled) DNSLeakTest shows various DNS servers depending on what TorGuard server I use. But after a few minutes, anywhere from immediately to 30 mins, AT&T starts hijacking my DNS requests. Any suggestions? Thanks AT&T for you douchebaggery, but there is no reason you need to know what I'm doing. I f'n hate being tracked!
  18. On one of my devices I've been getting the following error all day long when I connect to torguard: "Blocking DNS Failed!" The connection is then dropped. This device has connected without issue in the past, and other devices are connecting as normal on the same network. I didn't change anything in the settings. Any suggestions? Edit: This problem seems to have been fixed by updating torguard. The auto-updater didn't show a new version until today.

    fixxing dns leak from ipleak

    Hello. While using both torguard lite and viscosity on the website ipleak.net I still get dns leaks. In a post a month or so ago the mention changing the dns to use a static one that is provided. I dont see a way to change it through both appliacations. Would I have to change it though windows and if I do, while I am not using a VPN will that affect anything. Also I am using firefrox and have changed the setting that allows for the RTC leak

    DNS leak

    Hi, I've installed the Torguard app ( https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.torguard.openvpn.client) on my Android 4.2.2 The VPN is working but my DNS is leaking. I did my tests with https://dnsleaktest.com/ Does the application even try to change the DNS? Did you publish a guide or do you have suggestion on how to solve this problem? p.s. your service to test dns doesn't work, I think because it's an https page that tries to load some http content https://torguard.net/vpn-dns-leak-test.php
