  1. Update: Well, things seem to be going well with vpnsecureme. Speeds seem to be a bit slower than I was used to before but that may be torrent specific. I'm doing more tests to prove whether it's the torrent or the connection that has caused the reduction in speed. May have to accept slower speeds for higher security.
  2. Thanks Butterz, Actually I signed up with http://www.vpnsecure.me yesterday. Great live chat support and they answered all my questions in a professional manner. I have to decide where I want to put my dedicated IP (ie. server location) They suggested the Netherlands but I'm worried about connection speeds. The only issue is that once you decide on server location it can't be changed they said. Besides this one issue I think they are the best choice. I'll post a follow up after I have it all setup and running. Thanks again!!!
  3. I was using hidemytorrent.com but they wouldn't open a port for me so I couldn't get a green light in Bitcomet and so I cancelled my subscription and switched to BTGuard. It seems to be hiding my IP according to http://checkmytorrentip.com/. However, because they seem to block incoming connections, I have very slow speeds. What is interesting is that BT Guard says this about incoming connections: "Incoming connections directly to you are not anonymous. Please ignore any errors regarding incoming connections, you don't want them!" Is it true that incoming connections are not anonymous? I wonder... In the end, whatever solution we come up with needs to be compatible with bitcomet (allowing incoming connections) and also be compatible with p2p software (specifically SoulSeek in my case) for both uploads and downloads. SoulSeek does not provide native support for proxies so that is an issue that requires consideration. I'm using Proxifier with SoulSeek at the moment, but I don't think that it is hiding the incoming connections ie. uploads to other users. I'm very new to the whole proxy/VPN world so I don't really know what I need to solve my Bitcomet/SoulSeek privacy issues. Whatever the solution is, I want it to be airtight. Any help you can provide Butterz will be greatly appreciated!!
  4. Hi Butterz, Thank you for your message and warning about BT Guard. Would you mind explaining what you meant by "I got my money back from them because of fake advertising." What happened?
  5. Haven't given up, but my VPN is not being helpful at all so I'm looking into BT Guard at the moment....
  6. Thank you Unusual Suspect. I thought this was the case but wasn't sure. I guess using a VPN is out of the question....
  7. Hi Butterz, I tried your first idea of coneccting to the vpn after bitcomet made a connection but it didn't work. And I'm not sure what use the http://www.canyouseeme.org test is as I have to enter a port number to check if it is open or not. I have no idea what port they are giving me so it would be an endless game of trial and error.
  8. Hello everyone, First I'll give some essential information about my setup: 1) What version of BitComet are you using? Bitcomet 64bit v1.32 2) What type of Internet connection do you have (ADSL, etc.)? Fibre Optic hard line (very fast - I live in Japan) 3) Do you have a modem? Do you use a router? What make and model are each one of them? Have you forwarded your port? Modem: yes (provided by my ISP - NTT) and set to "Bridge" Router: yes (Asus RT-AC66U Dual Band) 4) If you have more than one router, be sure to mention the make and model of both devices, how are they connected (i.e. in which connector of both devices is the network cable plugged) and which one of the devices is connected to or is the modem. Also, if you have more than one computer make sure to mention in this case, to which router is every one of them connected. I have 2 PCs connected to the router, each with their own static IP setup PC1: and PC2: on DHCP in the router with port 65432 properly forwarded in the router to PC2: 5) What version of Windows, Firewall and Antivirus do you use? Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit Firewall: no software firewall but my router acts as one Antivirus: Eset Nod32 Anitvirus 5 6) Other important info: Recently purchased a VPN from hidemytorrent.com I've been using Bitcomet for about 5 years now and really like it. Up to now I've always used my standard ISP connection with the listening port properly port forwarded and have never had any issues. Recently, I've been concerned about internet privacy so I thought I would try a VPN service. I registered with hidemytorrent.com, setup the VPN and am able to browse the internet without any issues. I've checked my IP address and have confirmed that I am getting a new IP address which is coming out of the Netherlands (I live in Japan). When I use my regular connection there are no problems. The listening port is not blocked and I get the green ballon. However when I connect through the VPN my listening port is blocked and I get a yellow ballon. I have tried several different things but have had no success. Does anyone have any ideas as to what I can do with the settings of either bitcomet or my router to resolve this issue? Thank you in advance...
