In this tutorial we will show you how to set up Proxy on qBitTorrent but first let’s see what are our requirements.
Go step-by-step through following instructions:
Go to “Tools (1) and then to Options (2).
Go to Connection (3).
In the Proxy Server section, for Type (4) choose HTTP or HTTPS (depending on the streaming sites you are using) or SOCKS5.
In the Host field (5) enter the IP address of the proxy server you want to use and in the Port field (6) the port number.
You can find IP addresses of all our servers in your account on our website, by going to Settings.
Important! Make sure you use only the P2P-enabled servers marked with ✓ in the “P2P” column from the list of available servers.
Type your VPN username and password (7).
You can find your VPN username and password in your account on our website, by going to Settings -> VPN Username & Password. Make sure you use your VPN username and password and NOT the website account credentials (What is the difference?).
Click on OK (8).
If you want to check whether it really works, here is what you have to do:
Go to this website and click on Magnet link (9).
A new window pops up. Choose qBitTorrent and click on “OK“.
Important! Do not close the ipMagnet website.
qBitTorrent will open automatically. Save the torrent file to your computer and click on OK.
The file ipMagnet Tracking Link (10) will start synchronizing.
While the file is connecting to peers, return to the ipMagnet website. In the IP Adress(es) column (11) you should see the IP you entered in the Proxy field in qBitTorrent settings. That indicates qBitTorrent is downloading files through CactusVPN proxy.
