Guess I'll see if PIA will issue refunds.

I get it, but before you go through that hassle, maybe try one of the other binhex vpn enabled torrent clients to see if you can salvage the situation. The beauty of containers is that you can set up multiple versions to test without tearing down what you already have. I guess it boils down to how you want to spend your time.

PIA announces that the legacy servers will shut down at the end of October

 

Now that the next gen server support is in the latest, I guess it's time for me to update

I get they are moving over to next gen but all their update on their helpdesk site stated they were having problems with port forwarding on legacy servers and where "working to fix the issue". I think its now fair to say they had no intention to fix the issue. PIA is always trying to claim transparency but a move like this really doesn't give me any confidence. I'm sure port forwarding matters to a very small percentage of their customer base but its still a feature of their service that should work.

Good advice. Might give rtorrent a shot.

Hello, im downloading to my download share on the cache folder and even after using the mover cache isnt emptying.
My torrents are still seeding from cache maybe this is why ?

Is it possible to seed from array and if yes, is there no problem while doing it ?

Set “Advance view” in the top right corner of the docker page and you should see “force update” below the version info for the docker.

Thanks. Looks like I'd already updated (at one point I did a remove/add) so I guess I'm on the newest. 

 

Now I'm getting this in a loop:

I have a 1 gig fiber connection

I live in the USA

I used to run the old arch-qbittorrentvpn using PIA and selecting France as the PIA endpoint and i would easily get 100megabits per second or more which is fine for me before the "next gen" crap

 

I am trying Deluge now since it seems to have a lot more pulls than qbittorrent but i am only getting like 6-8 megabits per second and thats after trying to download a few Linux ISOs all at the same time to see my maximum using Mexico, France, 

 

Bahamas seem to get around 12 megabits per second for me

 

Deluge seems to connect fine when i am looking at the logs so thats not the problem

 

What is a recommended VPN to use since i think PIA is not any good any more

 

Thanks in advance and for all the hardwork Binhex

Just to confirm, are your speeds in megabits or megabytes. I just download an Ubuntu torrent at between 10-12 megabytes per second which is about 80-100 megabits per second. This is on a one gigabit connection using PIA connected to Canada. Deluge displays speeds in bytes (KiB/s-MiB/s) not bits. If 6-12 MiB/s is what your seeing displayed in the webUI that sounds right.

OK, well, in that case I did follow the force instructions. I'm showing: 1.3.15_18_ge050905b2-1-04.

By looking at your log you are showing the List of PIA Endpoints associated with the OLD open vpn config

Here is the new link for the "NEXTGEN" config

https://www.privateinternetaccess.com/openvpn/openvpn-nextgen.zip

I literally realized this 12 hours ago after bashing my head for a few hours on why qbittorrent wasnt working

 

nextgen has a lot more end points

It looks to me as if you have set a tag for this docker in the repository field. Is it set to "latest". If it's set to 1.3.15_18_ge050905b2-1-04 then it won't install the latest update. You'll need to change the version to latest and install the current version on Deluge v2.

I switched from binhex-delugevpn to binhex-qbittorrentvpn and have been getting much better download speeds.  I went from 10 - 15 MBps to 30 - 40 MBps.

i used to use qbittorrent all the time but i stopped torrenting for like a month and then when i came back it didnt work when i tried after the nextgen switch so i went to deluge, i realized i was using the old openvpnconfig and i am going to retry qbittorrent with the new nextgen opnenvpn config

https://www.privateinternetaccess.com/openvpn/openvpn-nextgen.zip

 

the biggest thing i miss about qbittorrent is total traffic summary as well as total download and total upload.. i cant find a way to enable it on deluge

pretty sure its megaBytes per second... which isnt terrible if im downloading 1 torrent with that but if i download multiple Linux ISO i cant pass a total of 8ish which is pretty bad.. im going to try qbittorrent and see if there is any difference

OK, I have been reading through all the new posts regarding the nextgen setups.  I updated my docker which was successful.  I can connect successfully using legacy ovpn files from PIA.

 

Deluge: 2.0.4.dev38
PIA ovpn files: legacy
Port Forward: no
Errors: none; connects fine and everything resumes

 

I downloaded the nextgen files via the instructions form Q19 in the VPN Docket FAQ.  I removed the old ovpn and cert files and replaced them with the nextgen files.  I also changed the STRICT_PORT_FORWARD variable to 'yes' since it was set to 'no' while using the legacy files.

 

When I try to start my docker I get the following error in the log:
2020-10-02 10:11:11,741 DEBG 'start-script' stdout output:
Fri Oct 2 10:11:11 2020 AUTH: Received control message: AUTH_FAILED

 

I saw Q16 in the VPN Docker FAQ which states my VPN_USER and/or VPN_PASS are not correct.  I regenerated my username and password from the PIA account site and updated them in the docker settings, but I am still receiving the error.  I even failed back to legacy ovpn files, setting STRICT_PORT_FORWARD to 'no', and everything works fine.  So I am thinking my user ID and password are good/valid since they work with the legacy files just fine.  A couple of questions to those with PIA and have it working with nextgen files:

 

1. Did you download the NextGen zip from the link labeled 'OpenVPN Configuration Files (Recommended Default)'?  The step in Q19 doesn't specify which set of files to use, but I was assuming the top link.

134302754_PIANextGenFiles.png.a42c0a9c40f425238092aeaccff9de1a.png

 

2. Are you using the 'PPTP/L2TP/SOCKS Username and Password' from PIA?  I wasn't sure if I should be using a different username and password for VPN_USER and VPN_PASS for the NextGen setup.  This is what works with my legacy ovpn files.

2061471121_PIACredentialArea.png.cbb88e97e13d68b313c088bc1f7d9134.png

 

3. Are there any other settings you need to change outside of what is stated in Q19 from the VPN Docket FAQ?  I am assuming no or else it would be called out in those steps to switch over to NextGen.


I also tested setting STRICT_PORT_FORWARD variable to 'yes' with legacy files, and another test with nextgen files and the setting it to 'no'.  Both were still failures and I assumed neither of these were the ideal setup so I am not working on troubleshooting those failures.

 

I am attaching my logs for legacy files port forwarding set to 'no', and nextgen files port forwarding set to 'yes' just if anyone wants to look at anything not stated here in my working and not working logs.

LegacyPortFwdNo.txtNextgenPortFwdYes.txt

 

So I am not sure if I need something in my PIA account flagged so I can use the NextGen servers or something else with my PIA account not setup correctly.  I know I am grasping at straws but I am not sure what is going on here.  I can open a ticket with PIA but I wanted to make sure what I am doing is correct before having them check my account on their side.

 

Any help from anyone would be....well....helpful. :)
Thanks.
