Hi everyone. Total newbie here but a very enthusiastic one!

I use the free VPN service within Opera. What are the settings (if any)for Bitcomet to unable me to download torrents anonymously.

If VPN connected, all BitComet downloading will be anonymously via VPN server. No additional proxy settings are needed.

The Opera VPN will only work, surprisingly enough, in Opera. To the best of my knowledge, it can't work in an external app

Opera mobile  VPN is defunct . Opera AG is said was sold to chines .

There can be 2 problems , 1is : to get access to torrent sites - need a VPN to bypass  , 2nd : blocked tracker announcers  - need a proxy

I've found a rather strange proxy behavior.

Every time I restart BitComet, I'm unable to download torrents, it can sit idle for hours, retrying without a success, until I edit my proxy settings.

Just changing them back and forth immediately spring the program to life.

The proxy I'm using is SOCKS5 (fully socks5h compatible).

BitComet settings are

Proxy type: Socks5

Proxy server: domain name of the proxy server

Proxy port: 1080

 

Adding or removing "socks=" prefix to the server name does not change the behavior.
