How can I use a P2P client with CyberGhost VPN?

After installation of CyberGhost VPN start the client and initiate the 'Torrent Anonymously' profile. If you want you can add your download client to the launch option and adapt some extra features, sich as the tracking blocker. Once done, start the connection. 

In case you choose a server manually through the profile for VPN experts, please note that in certain countries the usage of Peer to Peer technology (P2P) might be prohibited and your P2P program will not function, if forced to use a server not equipped to work with P2P technology. Then you need to choose a server from a different country. A server that does not support P2P is being marked with an exclamation mark in the server overview.

Some more hints:

  • Which precautions to consider regarding your anonymity? None. In the seldom case your connection to the CyberGhost VPN network gets interrupted, all your Internet traffic will be blocked until you decide to reconnect or shut down. In the meantime no data will be transmitted.
  • What else should I consider? CyberGhost VPN blocks by nature all incoming traffic, so nobody can access your computer. If other peers in a P2P net also use access restrictions, your downloads are limited to those, who doesn't. If there are enough peers providing a certain file, you’re good to go. If there are not enough, the download rate can be lower than usual.
