Question

InsaneJoker

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!

You can request a port forward here >> My Services >> View Details >> Management Actions >> Port Management

 

You can set your torrent client to use only the TorGuard adapter so that when VPN is disconnected it doesn't leak. In addition to that, you can setup kill switch in windows firewall so that any outgoing connection outside of VPN will fail. See this comment.

I found the port management link yesterday - immediately after I posted, by accident.  I will be looking into that further today. The issue with the RG that I read about may have a workaround, I am going to look into that as well. The killswitch would be exactly what I'd like to do, I'm going to implement that now - I got rid of the comodo firewall yesterday and I see that third party firewalls interfere with this solution. 

 

I'm working with support too, and I will post any updates or solutions I find here so that other users may be able to further assist themselves - Thank you!
