Security Question Regarding IP Address - Page 2

post #11 of 17
If you are that paranoid about your IP in the first place be careful on tor, end points (last computer that routes the traffic) can monitor traffic that goes through then if it's unencrypted. You can use utorrent through TOR as well. Makes it MUCH slower though.

Your not going to get hacked ... just download the linux files, after you download them remove them from your torrent program so your not seeding or anything (however that works..) and your good to go..

Only 100% sure way to protect you and do torrents is to use a seedbox.

Lots of them available.. and some are even free.

You can have it all fully automatic as well my system does the following:

1) select torrents from my browser and grab the .torrent file
2) utorrent sees a new torrent and moves it into a predetermined directory on my machine where new torrents go
3) cuteftp watch's said directory for new files as soon as one appears it grabs it and uploads to my seedbox
4) torrent auto queues up and starts, downloads and continues to seed
5) cuteftp at multiple pre-determined times a day sync any files on my seedbox to my windows home server

Your connection with your ISP is an encrypted connection directly to your FTP - so no risk.

Its alot to get it all configured but I can torrent full speed 24/7 and seed without anyone seeing my IP.

Well worth $10 a month imo.

Only way to semi protect yourself without a seedbox is peerguardian and ipfilter.dat (which you have to constantly update) even than it does not block your ip address. Also avoiding public torrents is recommended.

I would agree, but I operate under the belief that I should give back as much I take. Just seems fair that way.

I will have to look up this seedbox stuff. Never head of it before and heck, seeding in terms seems somewhat confusing. But, a good textbook explanation will set me straight I am sure. So I will definitely look at this stuff.

The only thing confusing is that something like BTGuard (after reading their website) may not achieve my goals. Seems like it should for torrents at least.

And TOR makes things go slower? Does that include web surfing? Obviously I am looking to keep similar performance to what I have now.

Well, that's making the assumption there is no logs being held on the servers/by the business that show you downloading from your instance.

Yeah it routes your traffic through a lot of computers so it slows it all down.
