either way, it never occurred to me to try with a wired connection so thanks for the suggestion!

Depending on your torrent client, you can setup for socks5 proxy in the client itself so it is always going through the proxy.

second QBtorrent. Avoid utorrent, it's filled with adware now (the installer at least).

goin back to my original question

if i have PIA and I use Qbtorrent through the socks5 proxy and my internet disconnects for a few seconds and reconnects again, am i compromised?

Or in this case, does going through the socks5 proxy prevent that from happening?

It will always go through the proxy, as long as it's set up to work that way

If it's set up correctly, all that traffic will be routed through the VPN

You can test them all here:

https://www.privateinternetaccess.com/pages/network/#

I get 20-22 mbps using US West, from Hong Kong, and a full 30 mbps through Singapore. Ttheir HK server sucks though, so the closest server isn't necessarily the best choice.

I actually use it quite a bit to improve streaming from Twitch.. For some reason a direct connection is very laggy sometimes, and running through Singapore VPN fixes it.

Going through a proxy isn't the same as going through the VPN though is it? The data is not encrypted when it goes through a proxy whereas it is through a VPN. Unless it's different for the socks5.

Trying to find a torrent client with a built in VPN unless I'm understanding the proxy/vpn difference wrong.

Proxy server just means it's going through another server before going to the destination, etc. It may be encrypted or not, it depends on the service.

If you use PIA, you will have access to their servers through SOCKS5, which will be encrypted.

QBTorrent supports SOCKS servers, although I've never tried that myself.

If on a private tracker, you'll have to make sure the tracker is using your PIA IP address, otherwise you won't get credit for uploading.

So far so good for me, no letters from shaw etc

NHL Game Center is fucking stupid though..so let me get this straight, you promote "watching your team anywhere" yet I can't watch Canucks when they are on sportsnet when I'm not using the VPN..and when I have the VPN set in California it says I cannot watch from that region..so basically I can't watch a game anywhere

Did you try using the VPN connecting from Toronto? Might work?

Socks 5 proxy's are encrypted, unless stated otherwise. If you're paying for a proxy, it's encrypted.

Proxy's are commonly used encrypt specific application(s). VPN's encrypt the entire device.

Toronto didn't work because it typically bounced to New Jersey, but selecting the "north York" location worked!

If you use their connect tool, you should update to the latest version. A vulnerability has been patched.
