What's the preferred country for VPN exits?
A country where everyone pirates (Netherlands, Sweden) or country with lax law enforcement (Bulgaria, Moldova) or country with no penalties for downloading (Canada)?

tor doesn't work for poorly seeded torrents that require incoming connections.

who cares?

NordVPN sucks ass, use Mullvad instead.
>>
i don't see how the answer to this question matters at all.
>>
Why even bother, I dont use a vpn at all no one cares
>>
>>1160364
Sure but which exit?
>>
Mullvad to switzerland, they dont give a shit what you do
>>
India for all kinds of torrenting, hacking, ddos, ssh bruteforce, etc. Nobody cares what you do and 90% of the ISP are ignorant.
>>
>>1161443
what's a good Indian VPN?
>>
>>1161446
When it comes to VPN, you can choose any location doesn't really matter because you are putting trust in VPN company rather than location. I live in India and never got requirement for it.

I would say go with Nord itself. They have support for ipsec/strongswan protocol which helps in automation. You can find some channels on telegram where you can freely find credentials of various nord account. After successful login. Capture the ipsec credentials and store them with you. Even if account holder changes password. You can still use those credentials in ipsec config.

Serbia
>>
>>1161639
why Serbia?
>>
>>1161639
>"Serbia is the leading country in central and eastern Europe, with a 78 percent piracy rate," said Dragomir Kojic from the Business Software Alliance, which brings together companies such as Microsoft MSFT.O and Adobe ADBE.O.
>“Croatia has around 58 percent, Slovenia 51 percent and new European Union members Bulgaria and Romania 71 and 74 percent.”
Nice.
>>
>>1160354
Fuck off newfag
>>
>>1160349
italy or spain as no one gives an absolute fuck about piracy unless you profit from off of it or if it involves cp
>>
>>1161435
I don't think it matters, it's not your problem. Prefer countries with best ping. I've never run into any problem, i just select the one which gives me best speed
>>
>>1161709
so if I'm in the US, it is okay for me to choose an American exit?
>>
>>1161731
Select US, and enable kill switch. Nobody gonna come to you.
>>
>>1161644
>78 percent
Wow, I had no idea piracy was this prevalent in my own country.
It'll probably start dropping now, even though it's easier than ever to pirate films and tv shows, people think "wow, what a low monthly fee for netflix", instead of thinking, "wow, free digital copies of any show/film ever, let me torrent it". People even buy youtube premium cause they don't know about ublock origin. BAKA my head, /t/bros.
Anyway, sorry for the off topic, I never used a VPN myself - all natural - but a friend of mine who moved from Serbia to Italy just picks what ever exit is fastest, he hasn't had any issues for years now.
>>
>>1161740
Interesting. I guess if you don't ever torrent anything spicy (think: twitch leaks) then probably fastest exit is enough. Nobody will break VPN for capeshit
This is how they use netflow data to bust VPNs: https://www.vice.com/en/article/jg84yy/data-brokers-netflow-data-team-cymru
>>
Always just used Mexico. Close enough to not have shit ping, and their government doesn't give 2 shits about torrenting.
>>
>>1161440
in Switzerland it is illegal to spy a p2p connection. ultimately making any torrent legal. also it is legal to download anything that isn't illegal(cp+zoo, etc) is legal except for pirated programs.
Switzerland usually have great internet connections
>>
Windscribe is pretty good, while they are Canadian they don't keep any identifiable information. They where audited multiple times, Mullvad and Proton seem to be good but I haven't tried them myself.
>>
I'm US, but my fastest speeds are through the Amsterdam servers on IPVanish. Great UI and the Kill Switch is a lifesaver
>>
>email from ISP because i downloaded actually recent media for once
these are still a meme right?
>>
>>1160349
You dont need one, its zoomer bullshit
>>
>paying for VPNs
fucking lol
>>
>>1164766
why not?
>>
>>1164767
I shouldnt have to pay for one, and isnt paying for a vpn defeating the purpose of being "private"?
>>
>>1164769
if it is free you are the product. all those free VPN apps sell your residential IP for their residential VPN service.
and you can pay using crypto which is somewhat private.
>>
>>1164771
Yeah man, I'm getting into mining. Gonna look into pricing options soon. If I can self-fund the vpn service through mining profits, that's as private as you can practically get. No middle men, no KYC crypto exchange, no credit card company to track that I'm paying for a VPN, and with Monero specifically, untraceable transactions.
Basically I'd be paying for my VPN indirectly through my electricity bill. Some people think that's dumb but I think that's pretty dope.
>>
>>1160349
Just use your own countries exit node? I've been doing it like this for the past two years.
>>
>>1160349
Just moved into a new place (university student) and nyaa won't load. Seems like my ISP has put some kinda block on it since when I use my phone on cellular I can access it. Do I need a VPN to bypass this?
>>1163964
Depends on what you download. I've torrented anime for years with no problem but last month I downloaded Fallout New Vegas and got an email. Just ignore it
>>
>>1160364

>use card to pay for Mullvad
>got a fraud text from my bank
A-am I fucked? Should I have used Paypal?
>>
>>1166143
paying for a VPN shouldn't ever be a problem, sounds like a payment processing issue
should've paid with crypto if you want better privacy, paypal is just as bad if not worse than card, doesn't really matter for just torrenting and stuff though
>>
i tried using a modded one on my phone and pc. android one connects but the connection fluctuates, guess they know its a fake. and the pc version only allows 8gb then have to reconnect again, with crack btw.
anyone here got free ones or links? really need one, i live in a shithole country
>>
>>1166137
Could also be a DNS-level block. Try 1.1.1.1 or 8.8.8.8
>>
Use IVPN. it's very cheap, transparent. no email signup. save your id and pay with a card or something else.
>>
>>1160351
shit idea torrenting with tor? please don't

I think it's an issue with a shitty payment processor on their end. Last 2 times I renewed with paypal I got an email from paypal saying someone was trying to access my account.
>>
>>1160349
Mullvad is the only good option nowadays
>>
>>1166143
Youre fine, just make sure you bind your torrent client to the VPN to ensure no leaks.
>>
>>1170049
But which exits?
>>
have any of you guys ever used Proton VPN?
>>
Do any VPNs accept a store bought gift card as a payment method?
>>
>>1170242
Gift cards? If you mean like Visa prepaid credit cards then probably yes. If you mean Starbucks points then most likely no.

youre late to the mining party, the only profitable thing to mine was ether and its no longer possible to mine it
unless you have free energy, dont even bother

I use Switzerland since fast internet and privacy laws, plus their outside of the 14 eyes for what it’s worth (still wouldn’t trust them for anything crazy but I doubt interpol or any 3 letter agencies are gonna track you through a vpn for torrenting)

Speaking of; any torrent bros know if I should be cautious in the amount I torrent? Like even if everything is properly going through a vpn should I limit my download activity so my isp doesn’t see tons of data being transferred each month? I have an unlimited plan but I’m like really paranoid when it comes to isp shit. Would help a lot of anyone could tell me if I’m schitzo or should be cautious
>>
>>1179826
I download and upload roughly 500GB a month on Comcast using a VPN. No issues.
>>
>>1161440
next time send them money by letter you dummy. I think that'st he only company that accepts this
>>
>>1179826
Check your contract. Sometimes they'll have stupid terms about how unlimited is only unlimited within limits.
>>
Luxembourg. We have only 2 (two) agents working on "illegal internet stuff", and both have enough to do with pedos.

Has anyone used Cloudflare Warp? I know it got shilled on IPT a bit.
>>
Im a poorfag who doesnt want to pay for a vpn and saw that the Opera gx browser comes with a free vpn that apparently is more akin to a proxy than an actual vpn
is it a good idea to use this vpn/browser for torrenting or am I better off getting a real vpn that I have to pay for?
I dont plan on using it for anything else other than torrenting
>>
>>1164771
You can set up your own encrypted protocol to torrent with you don't have to pay someone to do it for you through an app, a pi is perfect for this. You can use a pi to proxy all day.
>>
Was running my torrents through a seedbox with qb and a nordvpn proxy. But like a month ago this stopped working. Seems to me like nord does not support p2p proxies anymore (vpn still works though). Anybody got the same problem?
>>
>>1175579
fuck spectrum. Only isp I can get in my area and they randomly upped the bill $15 after upping it $10 last year
