It is known that websites like ThePirateBay are blocked in many countries due to censorship and copyright issues. However it isn’t very hard for us to unblock them and use them with qBittorrent without compromising the torrent download speed.
All we need to do is to install TOR (there are guides on how to do that) and tell qBittorrent to use it, but not for torrent downloads. Just go to the connection settings and put this settings into the Proxy section:
- Proxy type: SOCKS5
- IP address: 127.0.0.1
- Port: 9050
That’s it. qBittorrent should now work, and it should be able to find stuff from The Pirate Bay.
