Torrenting bypasses AirVPN's network adapter while VPN is up.

Recommended Posts

Hello!

From the screenshot we can see that you did not enable Network Lock. Please enable it to prevent any possible traffic leak, including leaks caused by configuration errors like yours.

In general you must not bind programs to the physical network interface: since the original gateway is not deleted in order to allow connectivity after a VPN connection is closed by the user, by binding to the physical network interface a process may bypass the VPN tunnel when Network Lock is not active and incoming connections arrive.

Note that wrong binding will arise even from UPnP, NAT-PMP and any other "automatic port mapping" methods so make sure to disable such options from the torrent program. Anyway Network Lock will prevent traffic leaks even in this case.

Check your torrent program settings against the following guide available in the FAQ section:

Kind regards
