    For our service to work best with uTorrent, we recommend the following:

    Please go into the Options Menu, and click on Connection:
    We want to ensure that “Enable UPnP Port Mapping”, “Enable NAT-PMP Port Mapping”, and “Randomize port each start” are all unchecked. If you are using Port Forwarding in our Application, please enter the forwarded port in the “Port used for incoming connections” field.

    If your main goal for torrents is speed, and sharing back to the swarm, please do not enable the Proxy server options, as this will slow down your downloads, and inhibit sharing back to the swarm.

    Please also click on the BitTorrent Tab, and uncheck “Enable Bandwidth Management [uTP]”
    For Maximum security, please uncheck “Enable DHT Network” and “Enable DHT for new torrents” These options may lead to having less seeds, but is more secure, and anonymous.

    Many users find they need to enable port forwarding in our VPN software in order to get the best connectivity and speeds with torrent clients.

    In order to enable port forwarding in our client, enter the Settings area for our client, and click the Advanced button. Enable port forwarding and select one of the following gateways:

    Netherlands
    Switzerland
    CA North York
    CA Toronto
    Romania
    Sweden
    France
    Germany

    After enabling port forwarding and re-connecting to one of the above gateways, please hover your mouse over the System Tray or Menu Bar icon for our client to reveal the tool-tip which will display the port number. You can then enter this port into your software, like Utorrent or another torrent client.

============

Plex showed Server could connect to cloud… but didn’t work. I setup port forwarding on the router to the Plex server. Started working well.
