Unraid VPN for torrenting?

Posted (edited)

So i just got a nord VPN account, I want to only use the VPN for my torrent dockers (binhex deluge/qbit), can anyone point me to what I need to do to get this going? I've been playing with my first unraid server build for a few months now, but im still pretty fresh. I just want to mask my torrent traffic without interfering with my plex server and other streaming services on my network or basically anything else other than the torrent client

 

I see qbit binhex docker settings has some fields for VPN access, but not deluge.

 

EDIT: Oh i think i just need the binhex deluge vpn docker? Is there anything else I need to do or is there a "best practice" way? 

 

EDIT 2: maybe I jumped the gun here too quick and should have considered a seedbox instead, learning as I go!

i ran nord for ages on the delugevpn docker per SI's video. but you should know, nord does not support port forwarding, so while your downloads will work fine, you won't be able to seed/upload with nord. i finally switched to PIA using one of the port forwarding config files, and been working fine ever since.

Some subset of downloads will work fine. Some downloads will be crippled. YMMV

Decided to go the Seedbox route, using ultraseedbox that comes with OpenVPN, but it sounds like i dont really need to set up a VPN at all for seedboxing

that's correct, no vpn necessary. 

 

which plan did you go with, and what client did you decide to use? i've also got an ultraseedbox and really like it so far.
