#4470 TorGuard on Windows 10 Mobile

Posted by trump2016 on 05 December 2016 - 11:38 PM

I didn't see a tutorial for setting up TorGuard access on Windows Phone devices, so I thought I write up a short tutorial. Hope this helps some people.

This is based on my device running Windows 10 Mobile (build 14965)


  1. Add a VPN connection (Settings -> Network & wireless -> VPN -> Add a VPN connection)
  2. Settings as follows:
    1. VPN provider: "Windows (built-in)"
    2. Connection name: Whatever you want. For example "TG".
    3. Server name or address: Any VPN hostname from here. For example "central.usa.torguardvpnaccess.com"
    4. VPN type: "L2TP/IPsec with certificate"
    5. Type of sign-in info: "User name and password"
    6. User name: Your TorGuard user name
    7. Password: Your TorGuard password
  3. VPN proxy settings: Automatically detect settings

That's it! You should be able to connect to TorGuard now.

#4274 iOS App - Feature Request and Whats Coming

Posted by Support on 30 October 2016 - 09:50 PM



Would really really love to see "connect on demand" option which is an auto-connect & a kill-switch on same time, it's available on many VPN apps. IKEv2 doesn't really work as intended.




Thanks, we will work on this in our next release.

#3803 Asus Merlin settings to bypass VPN (Policy based routing and Killswitch)

Posted by FallGuy on 06 June 2016 - 06:22 PM

The iface needs to be set to VPN and it's currently set to WAN. I would delete the rule and reconfigure it using VPN. If you leave it set to WAN it will always display your wan or isp's ip address when you run a leak test or ipcheck.

Also, under Accept Dns configuration, it should be set to "strict".

#3604 ED + TorGuard is AWESOME!

Posted by Buddhaman on 11 March 2016 - 08:35 PM

Hi to the torguard community and to the torguard devs!


I purchased torguard with the intent of being able to play Elite: Dangerous with some australian friends. If you play Elite dangerous I'm sure you have heard of the multiplayer issues.


I am happy to report that TorGuard worked PERFECTLY last night at allowing us to play together quickly, easily AND stably for the first time in over 9 months!


So no issues here during setup, no questions needing to be answered.


Just a big grin on my face and a THANK YOU, to the devs, and the community that made a program like this possible. :)

#3577 Using Torguard to access USA Netflix from Australia on TV

Posted by Befuzzled on 04 March 2016 - 10:42 AM

Hey mate,

There are generally only two ways to achieve what you want. VPN or Smart DNS.



For this method you need to have a DD-WRT router as only those will allow you to configure your router to apply your VPN configuration to it. There is the drawback of all your network data will be going over the VPN though and depending on what the connection is like it will more thn likely be considerable slower than your typically video streaming you currently experience.


Smart DNS

This would probably be the best solution for your situation as you just need to remove the current DNS Server configuration and use the ones provide by torguard when you purchase their Smart DNS service. Save the configuration and boom done. Just make sure you use the right location

This is considerably faster than the VPN solution and easier to configure with your device. 


*Note: With Netflix cracking down on geoblockers this methods may soon not work 


Best of luck

#3092 You are not anonymous

Posted by Insomniac on 19 September 2015 - 09:07 AM

WebRTC is a technology that allows for browser-to-browser interactions not previously possible with other standards.
A serious privacy issue has been found in WebRTC. This issue allows for websites see the local IP address of a user. This is a major concern as it allows for unique identification of users behind NATs, VPN, and potentially Tor. The proper browser extension disables or configures WebRTC to not use certain IP addresses like an ISP-provided address, when browsing through a VPN). You can test this here. https://diafygi.github.io/webrtc-ips/ Your local IP address should not appear.

Please patch your browsers.
WebRTC Network Limiter: Chrome Store
Disable WebRTC configures WebRTC to not use certain IP addresses like an ISP-provided address, when browsing through a VPN). You can simply disable WebRTC in Firefox:
  • Enter "about:config" in the URL bar
  • Find the key of "media.peerconnection.enabled"
  • Set the value to "false"

But it may reset after each update. Which is why I recommend installing Disable WebRTC

Disable Web RTC: Mozilla Store or https://addons.mozil...disable-webrtc/

Firefox mobile:
Disable Web RTChttps://addons.mozil.../en-US/android/

TorGuard should send emails to all clients about this vulnerability and add info on this to the set-up instructions.

#2951 Viscosity deleting connection list

Posted by DrMorbius on 05 August 2015 - 02:49 PM

Alright I posted a ticket and got a reply.


If you downloaded the 'patch' from the posted link in @Will yesterday, you need to redownload it today. I re-ran the patch downloaded from yesterday (8/4) which does not offer the option noted by @JJJJ of Append / Overwirte / Ignore.  If you have edited connections, inserted your own, etc, select append, if you want to clean the list choose overwirte.


On my Windows 8.1 Pro PC the installation process ran without issue. On my Windows 7 PC the installation ran into issues replacing files in use. These files appeared related to the service / driver / adapter of Viscosity. I selected, ignore for the files in use and the installation finished and offered the VPN List update options. I chose to 'ignore' since I figured the installer from yesterday ran without problem there was little chance of a change to those files overnight. The VPN connection appears to be running OK and passes the leak dectectors. I have reported the Win 7 Install issues to Support.


I also hope the update process gets fixed.

#2740 Ordering Confusions of a Newbie

Posted by sagitto on 06 June 2015 - 05:53 AM

I thought it would be as simple as buying a plan, downloading a program for my Windows PC (32bit) and off I go.

Not so.

I surfed to the Torguard website, selected VPN Pro Service which on the next window becomes Anonymous-VPN-Pro-VPN.

I then notice at the bottom of the page under "additional required information" a box beside "TG Viscosity" with a default option of "NO".  Say what?

Do I stay with "NO" or do I select "YES" - it doesn't seem to make difference to the price.

It doesn't seem to add anything extra into the shopping basket.


Per the Chat box I need it in order to run the VPN Pro Service aka Anonymous-VPN-Pro-VPN.

If it's essential why isn't the default "YES", what happens if I go with "NO".  Try looking that up in your Funk and Wagnalls (aka knowledgebase).


Pity ther aren't step by step instructions for the Really New, First Time Users, Don't Know what They Are Doing customers.


Then the other problem I suspect that is looming for me is what do i download anyway, should it Torguard VPN Lite or Torguard VPN Pro.  I would think the latter because it has the name of the Subs that I want to buy but on the other hand there are no Subs for VPN Lite.


Woe is me.


Guess somethings are just meant for the mediocre (that's me with some 'ediocr' inside - that 'dio' bothers me, the word idiot also has it).

#2308 DD-WRT Configuration with Selective VPN Tunneling and Port Forwarding

Posted by Greybox on 13 January 2015 - 08:46 PM

I use my DD-WRT equipped router, with the built in OpenVPN Client, to open a VPN tunnel, but I only wanted one specific machine to use the tunnel. That machine doesn't have the processing power to handle a high speed VPN connection, to the tunnel had to come from the router. I wanted to create this connection with 3 guidelines


1) Only one specific machine would connect through the VPN tunnel

2) That machine would connect only to the VPN tunnel, never to the public traffic

3) I want 2 specific ports forwarded, through the VPN and through the router, to that machine


With a combination of TorGuard support and learning a lot on the dd-wrt forums, I was able to accomplish all 3 goals


First, to connect one or more specific machines to the VPN, this functionality is already built into DD-WRT. In DD-WRT, go to the Services tab, and then the VPN sub-tab. Fill out the fields based on this guide, but skip the 'Save Firewall' section at the beginning, as well as the UsernamePassword file generation, since Username and Password fields are now a standard part of later DD-WRT builtds. On the same VPN page, in the 'Policy Based Routing' field, include the IP address of each machine you want to use the VPN followed by '/32' then hit 'Apply Settings'. As an example

Second, go to the Administration tab and then the Commands sub-tab. There, enter this command, replacing IPADDRESS with each IP address you want to be blocked from the WAN, and click Save Firewall

iptables -I FORWARD -s IPADDRESS -o $(nvram get wan_iface) -j DROP

Again, as an example

iptables -I FORWARD -s -o $(nvram get wan_iface) -j DROP

This will allow that machine to only use the VPN, when both the first and second steps are completed successfully



Third, on the same command page, edit the Firewall script, and add the following lines, replacing IPADDRESS and PORT appropriately, followed by clicking Save Firewall

iptables -I FORWARD -i tun1 -p udp -d IPADDRESS --dport PORT -j ACCEPT
iptables -I FORWARD -i tun1 -p tcp -d IPADDRESS --dport PORT -j ACCEPT
iptables -t nat -I PREROUTING -i tun1 -p tcp --dport PORT -j DNAT --to-destination IPADDRESS
iptables -t nat -I PREROUTING -i tun1 -p udp --dport PORT -j DNAT --to-destination IPADDRESS

This example will forward port 8080 to IP address from the VPN tunnel

iptables -I FORWARD -i tun1 -p udp -d --dport 8080 -j ACCEPT
iptables -I FORWARD -i tun1 -p tcp -d --dport 8080 -j ACCEPT
iptables -t nat -I PREROUTING -i tun1 -p tcp --dport 8080 -j DNAT --to-destination
iptables -t nat -I PREROUTING -i tun1 -p udp --dport 8080 -j DNAT --to-destination

Once all 3 steps are completed and saved, everything should work as designed

#2268 Torrent General Question

Posted by TorGuard Admin on 29 December 2014 - 01:12 PM

Hello and welcome to TorGuard... I would be happy to answer your questions:


1. VPN server locations in the app that have a green torrent symbol are optimized for bittorrent. If there is a grey icon that means the location is not optimized for bittorrent usage.


2. You can still use a non optimized location and all traffic will be routed through the VPN. The only difference is your bittorrent downloads may not perform as well as when running on a (green) optimized location.


Hope this answers your questions.

#4475 TorGuard Client v0.3.58 (Windows Only)

Posted by Support on 07 December 2016 - 01:57 PM

I'm running windows 10 pro, torguard asked to update, I did. Then complained about a tap problem error. I reinstalled torguard, same issue. It tries to install a driver, but fails; then can't connect. I tried restarting the machine, but no joy.


I uninstalled the tap driver after Torguard showed an error message that no tap adapter was found, even though I didn't even touch it before.


I had windows defender only.


The error message: A driver problem was detected. A problem with the TUN/TAP driver was detected. It is recommended to reinstall the driver. Reinstall the driver now?


When I press OK, it shows this:


A driver problem was detected.

A problem with the tun/tap driver was detected. It is recommended to reinstall the driver.

Some virus protection software is known to interfere with driver installation. If the problem persists, please configure your av software accordingly.

Reinstall driver now?


I press OK and it shows the same error message again.


I had Kaspersky installed but that was months ago; and was uninstalled correctly.





 I want back to version 0.3.56, it installed the tap adapter and connected to a server with no issues.


Hi there


If you have this problem, please reinstall the latest version and do the following:

1) Uninstall all TAP drivers if any are present, go to  >> Control Panel >> System and Security >> System >> Device Manager
2) Scroll down to Network Adapters, right click the TAP drivers and uninstall them, deleting the driver too when asked, reboot!
3) Install this TAP driver >> http://swupdate.open...ows-9.9.2_3.exe
4) Reboot again and retest please.

#3289 Any way to stop connectons while TG is not active?

Posted by Support on 17 December 2015 - 11:10 AM

To rectify this issue, I use the OpenVPN Connect app and have Seemless Tunnel checked and Connection Timeout set to "Never" in the preferences. Then I can just import one of TorGuard's iOS/Android ovpn files and be on my way.


Another approach (if the above doesn't work on your version of Android) is to ping one of TorGuard's hostnames to get an server IP and use it to set up L2DP manually in Android's native VPN settings. Enter a DNS IP, available in the client area on TorGuard's website. Then set Always-on from the overflow menu in the top right. 


I hope TorGuard Lite (both PC and Android versions) gets the Seemless Tunneling feature in the near future so there aren't any leaks when the internet connection drops.



This is coming yes, the seamless option is in development :)

#2286 Confused about torrenting with a VPN

Posted by Stevo on 04 January 2015 - 12:50 AM

Hello, Yes I am still fairly new at this so I shall thank you all for your patience in advance.
I am in Australia, running Windows 7. I have set up uTorrent to the socks5 proxy.torguard.org as per the knowledge base article. However, when I try downloading torrents there are no connections what so ever. So my questions are:
Now that the proxy is set up, do I sill have to connect to the VPN prior to downloading torrents, selecting a server that is Bittorrent Optimised. Or, do I not have to connect to the VPN and the Proxy will handle it all? (if the latter is the case, than to be connected to a VPN and torrent at the same time, do I need to disable the proxy?)
Is there any other steps I need to carry out other than those listed in the knowledge base article to allow for torrent traffic?
Your help is all greatly appreciated.

Hello Dun, this is what we will be doing, we will be allowing access to the sits and blocking only trackers, due to some technical aspects of the system we use we have to create a workaround for this and will be done soon. Regards
