Question about proxy service & torrenting

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts


So I have a few questions im trying to clear up.  I got a new fiber connection and didnt want to choke off my bandwidth by connecting to the vpn if could be avoided (for torrenting) and so I looked into the proxy idea.

I entered my info and the proxy info into qbittorrent, however my private tracker of choice shows me as not connectable as a result.   Unsure if this is par for the course with a proxy (which renders it useless for me, if I want ratio) or if it simply isnt working because its not included with the VPN package. 

I looked into it further, seems the proxy limits your capacity to seed as theres no way to properly port forward for connections within reason.   So i have my answer.  I'll use it for public trackers and that'll be that I suppose.
