A humble request for more VPN options

by Guest on 2021/11/22 07:38:23 PM    
Hello all,

It has come to my attention lately that Nord VPN's support of the SOCKS5 proxy standard is waning,
and they no longer list servers that support it on their server-picker webpage.
(There's a way to get around this for the moment, with a powershell command to address their API directly, but the fact it isn't available to the public really says something)

The supported protocols for their P2P VPN servers are as follows:


1.
IKEv2/IPSec
IKEv2/IPSec IPv6
2.
OpenVPN UDP
Open VPN TCP
OpenVPN UDP IPv6
Open VPN TCP IPv6
3.
Wireguard


It's really convenient to be able to connect to the VPN directly from your torrent client, rather than through any of the more complicated means.
Creating a new user on my machine, creating a VM that is running all the time to virtualize Tixati, and other tricky things.

The original reason I discovered Tixati was because qBittorrent didn't work with NordVPN anymore.
I've grown attached to Tixati, and would like to see the VPN features given some love. Even though they're probably super complicated and difficult to upgrade.
The torrent client that does everything, might as well support a protocol other than SOCKS5 right?

Thank you for your time, and I hope others agree this would be a good change.

PS I didn't scroll the forum at all before posting this, so it's possible that this gets asked every other day, so I apologize if that's the case.

You don't need a SOCKS5 proxy to use Bittorrent safely:
Network - Connections - Local IPv4/IPv6 address or interface = Select your VPN adapter
This will ensure Tixati never bypasses the VPN connection. It will continue to use the system's DNS resolver however. Bonus feature: port-forwarding can work since you're no longer behind a proxy.
