List of VPN’s that allow P2P and Port Forwarding

When you choose a VPN provider you might also want to do some P2P or use a SOCKS5 proxy to forward your downloads e.g. via IDM or other programs. Personally I use PIA for qBittorent and to establish a proxy connection to my Router and Raspberry PI, so this is an important function (for me).


Keep in mind that port forwarding can be dangerous.

Static Port:

Dynamic port:

Port forwarding confirmed available but not sure if static or dynamic

Not mentioned at all/to confirm:

Confirmed port forwarding not permitted:

And here is a short setup example while torrenting behind a VPN, because I often get asked because which setup you should use.


I hope this helps some people choosing the right VPN provider, over the coming months I will take a closer look on PIA, NordVPN and ProtonVPN and write some critical reviews on these services from my point of view.

Also please don’t forget that especially for Linux/Android users are alternatives available.

Choosing the right VPN provider is as important as choosing the right ISP these days. Stay secure friends!

You only need to die. It could make sense in the following case: Your VPN is slow or disallow torrenting. You want another proxy only for torrenting because you e..g. use Tor/I2P/… for surfing or you simply want surf normal. There is also the juristriction, in my case in NL it’s official allowed to torrent.

A need is not there, but some provider offering especially for torrenting an seperate tunnel duue speed/juristriction reasons.
