When I have Eddie running am I automatically protected in uTorrent?

 

or

 

Are there setting I need to configure with uTorrent and Eddie to make sure all my setting are private and anonymous. 

 

Also I have Network Lock activated, what does this do. I have network lock on and my server disconnects does this free traffic?

 

Any help would be awesome.

 

Newbie.

You should make sure your system doesn't have any DNS leaks as well as check if uTorrent isn't leaking. You can test both at ipleak.net. I'd also recommend disabling WebRTC on your browser as well since that can leak both your ISP given IP address as well as your internal network IP address.

 

Also you shouldn't have to configure Eddie for leaks as it already configures your system for it. But I'd still test for leaks to be safe.

Hello!

 

Personally, I recommend using qBittorent, both because it's open-source software and because I think it's possible to make it bind to the VPN interface, thus only using the VPN interface for torrenting, while this may not (yet) be possible in uTorrent as easily. As DA623 said, you ought to go to ipleak.net and see if you're leaking anything. Try the test torrent as well. However with Network Lock on, you won't be leaking WebRTC either, even though ipleak shows you how to disable it anyway. Remember to do some portforwarding, to forward the port that your torrent client uses, so that things go faster .

I also vouch for qBitTorrent, as said above (by LZ1) you can make the torrent client ONLY use the VPN adapter, meaning that it will not accept data from any other connection on your computer other than your VPN connection. Network Lock ensures that all of the data you send is directed to an AirVPN server when you are connected, thus, eliminating the possibility of an IP leak (this also protects you from WebRTC leaks, but it may be a good idea to manually disable WebRTC in your internet browser, especially if you use Firefox as this is easy to do).

Of course it does protect against "WebRTC" leaks! It's just a very specific case of the most general purpose of the filtering rules set by Network Lock.

 

See also here to frame the argument correctly:

Oops, please disregard my sentence about the WebRTC leaks.

That is the local ip that you have under the VPN server. It reflects nothing about your actual network.
