  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 w
  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
