Is there a way to have my torrent docker use my VPN but not the server?

My VPN is pretty slow and I don't want to slow down the other tasks I use it for. However, I don't want my IP broadcast on my torrent client (qbitorrent) docker.

 

I can't find a way to do this, other than installing a virtual machine and having the virtual machine setup to use my VPN. Not ideal since I don't need a whole virtual machine running and using resources.

Use one of @binhex's excellent VPN enabled torrent client dockers.

 

However, you say your VPN is slow, I'm wondering if it properly supports torrents by providing an open incoming port. If not, you will not have much luck with it. I recommend PIA, they are the easiest to set up with binhex's dockers and work well provided you specify an endpoint with open ports.

Its not "slow" as in that slow. I just have gigabit internet and I prefer my usenet client to go 100MB/s, not 10MB/s. First world problems, eh? :)

 

I'll try his VPN version of qbbittorrent thanks.
