Hi!

I've set up my client (qBitTorrent) to use SOCKS5 proxy from the available list. Everything seems to work great, but I noticed a weird thing:

when I intentionally go to settings and disable proxy authorization - torrents don't stop downloading. Does it mean my IP starts getting exposed??

Possibly its still using a pre authorized(cached) connection...if you restart the your torrent program does it continue.

 

I know on mine sometimes I lose access to my socks proxy but any existing connections will continue as they're already established (but wont gain any new seeds/leechers until it comes back and eventually it can grind to a stop)
