To support users with an increased need for privacy, we’ve made it easy to use a proxy for BitTorrent traffic. You can also enable anonymous mode to further obfuscate your identity.
Picking a VPN provider¶
There are many VPN providers, and you can even host your own somewhere. However, for those looking for a quick and easy way of getting started, we’ve compiled a small list of VPN providers we like.
Configuring a proxy¶
Configuring a proxy is easy. Just open the Preferences, go to the Connection tab and enter your details.
- Force proxy disables any connections not going through the proxy.
- Proxy hostnames will perform hostname lookups through the proxy.
- Proxy peer connections will route all peer connections through the proxy.
- Proxy tracker connections will route all tracker connections through the proxy.
