This step by step tutorial will show how to setup a TorGuard anonymous torrent proxy with popular bittorrent client FrostWire.
FrostWire is free Bittorrent client that was first released in September 2004. While initially it was intended as a fork for Limewire, over time the developers have added more features including Bittorrent support. As of version 5, Frostwire is now a Bittorrent only client and development has continued at a rapid pace ever since the app was first released in 2004.
Frostwire can be downloaded directly from here.
1.) First, start FrostWire and select Tools, then Options.

Click the Apply button.
That is it! You have now successfully configured a TorGuard proxy with FrostWire.
