What is the best setting on VPN for torrent downloads? (USA)

Rate this question



Hi, I'm located in the USA and am very new to VPN. What is the best way to optimize my torrent speeds? I noticed a significant drop from the 3-4 MB/s without VPN to 500-700 KB/s.


Current settings - Protocol: UDP Cipher: AES 128 CBC HMAC: SHA 512

Hello Drakey, welcome to the Forums!


Torrent speed will vary, might just not be enough peers available in the swarm to seed. Your current VPN settings are fine and the cipher you have chosen is the best for speed. What torrent client and operating system are you using?


Here are a few suggestions that you can try:

  • Add additional trackers to your torrent, you can find extra trackers via search engine.
  • Run speedtest to get your dl/ul rates, use this free tool and set your connection settings up: http://infinite-source.de/az/az-calc.html — http://wiki.vuze.com/w/Good_settings
  • Configure the client to run through a socks proxy.
  • Connect your computer directly to your modem bypassing the router(if applicable), to see if it might just be your router slowing you down.
