I have been using AirVPN for the last couple of years on macOS and never had any issues with hiding my actual IP while torrenting. On iPadOS, however, it seems like my set-up has a weak spot, see attached screen-grabs. Can somebody please help me out? Do you need any more information to access the problem?

Disable NAT-PMP and UPnP. I think it opened the port on your ISP router.
Also disable uTP, it has a tendency to break throughput.

Thank you for your quick reply. I tried what you proposed but even with those options disabled my real IP still seeps through :(

Yes, of course, the ports may be still open in your router.

I am not sure I understand. How do I manually close them, then? I have a FRITZ!Box in case that matters. I just checked the torrent address detection to another server on my MacBook connected to the same WiFi via Transmission: Everything’s (still) fine there, my real IP does not show up.  Edited ... by der1agibert

Okay, I was about to rule out the router, anyway. :)
