Hello!

 

You can check my new user guide.


Moderators do not speak on behalf of AirVPN. Only the Official Staff account does. Please also do not run Tor Exit Servers behind AirVPN, thank you.
Did you make a guide or how-to for something? Then contact me to get it listed in my new user guide's Guides Section, so that the community can find it more easily.

You can bind qBittorrent to the tun0 interface

 

This. Available in the advanced settings. Unless you use Windows because for me this never worked on Windows. Use Network Lock instead.

All other settings are your personal preference.


Four simple things:
There's a guide to AirVPN. Before you ask questions, take 30 minutes of your time to go through it.

Amazon IPs are not dangerous here. It's the fallback DNS.
Running TOR exits is discouraged. They're subject to restrictions on the internet and harm all AirVPN users.

Furthermore, I propose that your paranoia is to be destroyed. If you overdo privacy, you'll be unique among the mass again.

I believe the default Options/Connection/Listening Port should be set to the Port Forward assigned by Air for proper interaction with trackers and peers due to the "firewall effect" of the VPN. Not a security issue (hopefully?), but an efficiency/performance setting, and may require extra interaction with antivirus or windows firewall.

Just a mention in a "starter thread". Probably covered in LZ guide, have not read up for a while. Todo.

i was told it wasn't necessary and, in fact, a bad idea to forward ports for torrenting - i run qBT with no forwarded ports or any other special settings and i get a 'green' light (uploading works) - the only thing i do since i don't use Eddie is to bind qBT to tun0

Quite the opposite, it's a good idea. Without remote port forwarding your torrent software can't be contacted. It can only actively initiate connections toward some client which allows incoming connections, therefore performance is impaired and initial seeding is impossible. If all peers in a swarm did not accept incoming connections torrenting would not work at all in that swarm.

 

Kind regards

yes, Air staff is correct regarding port forwarding - my mistake

 

to others who find this topic...

 

AirVPN - go to your control panel and forward a port for both UDP and TCP - leave the fields blank and it will auto-pick a port

 

make sure the port you use is NOT forwarded in your router

 

there is no need to forward this port anywhere else (firewall, router, etc.) other than in the AirVPN control panel

 

qBittorrent > tools > options > connections

listening port - plug in the same port you forwarded on Air

uncheck UPnP

uncheck use different port on each start

 

qBittorrent > tools > options > connections > connection limits

global max = 100

connections per torrent = 50

(settings above suggested by Air staff)

 

qBittorrent > tools > options > bittorrent > privacy

enable DHT

enable PeX

 

qBittorrent > tools > options > advanced

network interface = tun0 (on Linux anyway) - you may have to be connected to the VPN before the tun0 option is available

 

if you change VPN servers, you may have to repeat the above step if you are unable to download

Hi!

 

You can bind qBittorrent to the tun0 interface or activate the network lock using Eddie.

Either way, you won't get any letter.

 

This is a great suggestion and solution. I just set qBittorrent to only use the TAP network adapter, and tested whether the connection was lost when I disconnected from my VPN and reinstated when I was connected to the VPN. Several tests show that the downloads stop as soon as I disconnect from the VPN, and continue once I reconnect the VPN.
