TorGuard VPN Location, and qBittorrent Proxy setup question

Rate this question

Question

Hello all,

I'm a complete newbie in regards to VPN's.
I have setup TorGuard and have followed the site guide on how to setup my account on the qBittorrent software.

My question is do I need to enable TorGuard service before I start torrenting or is it already taken care of since i've applied my credentials and such to the qBittorrent software (Connection/Proxy Section).

Any and all help would be appreciated.

Proxy is different from VPN,

Proxy will hide your IP but your ISP will still see your traffic.

If you run the Torguard service VPN and config the proxy in qbittorrent you will double safe

Don't forget guys we now also offer a way to use our internal socks5 inside your torrent client, you can find what locations have this enabled here https://torguard.net/network/

The internal socks5 will only work when VPN is connected, if the VPN disconnects all traffic will stop as its pointing to an IP only available inside the VPN, this internal socks5 requires no authentication while connected to VPN.

How exactly is this done?  Do I need to configure it (using Vuze)?  Tried changing settings while connected to a supported server and keep getting connection timeout.

Use the Internal proxy when connected to a location that supports it, you can find those here https://torguard.net/network/

When using internal proxies do not enter any authentication info, leave that set to "none" and just enter this as your socks5 proxy 10.81.0.1 with port 9898

Hello

Internal proxies are not available just now - please use the public socks5 hostname proxy.torguard.org and re-enable socks5 authentication.

We will have internal socks5 available again soon - there are some internal changes on going.
