Not connected, Your IP:

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody,


i suscribed few days ago to airvpn and i'm looking for a solution to make an "ip binding" system to prevent connection to internet when the VPN is offline.

The point is that i read a lot of informations about the network locker and windows firewall, but i only have Gdata firewall (i don't know if it's good to launch two firewalls at the same time...)

I don't really have a brillant computering knowledge si i'm kind of lost with all theses procedures.

can you help me with this ?


I specially want ipbinding when i'm using utorrent, to avoid data sharing when my public IP can me seen by everybody..


thank you a lot

Shortest solution for you would be either using the Windows Firewall with network lock enabled,

or to switch to a good torrent client like qbittorrent:



Which will allow you to use specific network adapter. You then have to select the TAP adapter in the settings.

Hello !


So i understood what you said about qbittorrent, i enable the tap adaptater network on the qbittorrent interface and it's working well.

When i shutdown the VPN, all the torrents stop sharing (there is a latency time between switch off the VPN and torrents stop sharing completly, is it ok ?)


A last question, shoul i do something with my firewall ? Set specific rules about the VPN process ?


Thanks you a lot

Hello !


If you turn on Network Lock, that's a good first step
