Using AirVPN for a specific application possible?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I would like to know whether it is possible to restrict AirVPN to a single specific application (such as uTorrent) while keeping your original connection for other things (such as gaming).

Spontaneous suggestion: a virtual machine.

You could create a Windows VM via VirtualBox for example. Then you install an OpenVPN client and uTorrent there. Or anything you'd like to separate from your original internet connection.

If you would like to access your downloaded files from within the host system just let uTorrent download into a shared directory.

» If you're new, take some time to read LZ1's New User Guide to AirVPN. On questions, use the search function first. On errors, search for the error message instead.

» If you choose to create a new thread, keep in mind that we don't know your setup. Give info about it. Never forget the OpenVPN logs or, for Eddie, the support file (Logs > lifebelt icon).

» The community kindly asks you to not set up Tor exit relays when connected to AirVPN. Their IP addresses are subject to restrictions and these are relayed to all users of the affected servers.

 

» Furthermore, I propose that your paranoia is to be destroyed. If you overdo privacy, chances are you will be unique amond the mass again.

If you plan on using a VM, I wouldn't use a windows as it will chew up more resources than necessary. 

 

Use a lean linux distro and your torrent client of choice. I personally use Tixati and highly recommend it.

An even better and more efficient approach would be to use Ubuntu server and something like Transmission with a web GUI.

Doesn't really matter. My PC can handle a VM and DotA at the same time.
