A few days ago, I asked question on how to stay anonymous while downloading on Torrent.
I got a few responses and followed the response I got religiously. I hit a snag because at some point my download speed became slow on the download, at the same time, every other software was still flying at their normal speed.
I got to realise that it was because Torrent slowed it down cos my IP has been identified, I just had to end the download.
What can I do to prevent this slow measure from repeating itself?
I responded to the initial query and I happen to face the same problem as you faced. It’s quite unfortunate that PeerBlock was not efficient anymore.
I had to try out other solutions and the best use a proxy like BTGuard. It funnels all your BitTorrent traffic through another server, thus keeping your IP address hidden from anyone connecting to your BitTorrent swarm.
Even if you’re downloading a torrent that’s being tracked, they’ll see BTGuard’s IP, not yours, and BTGuard doesn’t keep any logs of their service, meaning they won’t trace that IP address back to you.
If you want to keep your browsing speed from being throttled, you can try enabling encryption in your BitTorrent client. If this doesn’t give you the desired result, BTGuard provides an encryption program along with its proxy service that can hide your traffic better than uTorrent and other clients, to ensure you don’t get throttled.
These options are proven and have been tested over the past few days.
