    Transmission BitTorrent Proxy Config

    So I am running 10.04 and I am trying to configure everything. In transmission, I am curious how to use the feature "connect to tracker via proxy". Will this help me remain anonymous when downloading? I have already checked the box for using a random port on every time transmission is started. Any other tips of this sort are greatly appreciated.

    Hi and welcome to Ubuntu Forums, may you enjoy your stay!

    Well, proxies are not secure enough for downloading torrents, in my opinion.
    I think you should use an encrypted VPN(Virtual Private Network) instead.
    If this is for pirating (which this forum of course does not support), I would especially recommend using an encrypted VPN.

    You could for example take a look at Hotspot Shield here.
    There is a guide on installing it in Ubuntu here.

    May your days be merry.
