I am currently using Inno Download Plugin to download files for my installer, the biggest problem with this is that it fails to download the file correctly. Because of many reasons like bad connection. I would like to add an alternative method to download files, so the user may chose if he want regular way, or a torrent way. I know that I can use aria2c.exe app. Can someone help me with implementing it to the code of inno setup?
In a nutshell, a SOCKS5 proxy server should be enough to provide you with adequate anonymity and speed. All it takes is configuring your torrent client with the optimal settings and that your proxy server comes from a reliable provider.
A proxy server can be an extremely efficient way to hide your identity within torrent swarms and trackers and still get decent download speeds. Proxies lack encryption overhead, so they are generally faster than VPNs, but less secure. For more on this comparison and more, check our deep VPNs vs proxies comparison.
The advantage of not using encryption is simply the lower overhead. Compared to VPNs, proxy servers are much faster and efficient for those bandwidth-intensive traffic applications, like P2P and torrenting.
There are different types of proxies out there. The most frequent and available are HTTP and SOCKS5, which can be used for a wide variety of applications. But when it comes to torrenting, SOCKS5 can be a much better option.
Some of these torrent clients provide a great degree of flexibility and added security when configuring a proxy. For example, you can configure your client to use the proxy only for peer connections. This option will ensure that your home IP address does not leak peer connections. In addition, you can also only choose your client to use the proxy for tracker communications.
Some torrent clients allow you to disable connections not supported by proxies. For example, when a peer connection does not support the proxy, it will likely drop the connection, making your ISP or anyone in between notice. Instead, disabling all these connections that do not support proxy will help avoid leaks.
uTorrent is a multiplatform torrent client, supported by Microsoft Windows, Linux (server version only), macOS, and Android. You can get uTorrent through different consoles, including uTorrent Web, uTorrent mobile, uTorrent Remote, and uTorrent Desktop classic and Pro.
qBittorrent is a popular cross-platform torrent client supported by: FreeBSD, Linux, macOS, OS/2, and Windows. The current stable versions, as officially stated, are for the following platforms, Windows (7, 8, and 10), macOS (Mojave, Catalina, and Big Sur), and Linux (Source Tarball). Fortunately, you can configure your qBittorrent proxy in all these versions.
Deluge is another popular torrent client supported by FreeBSD, Linux, macOS, and Windows. Thankfully, you can configure Deluge proxy settings for any of these platforms. To optimize speed and improve anonymity, check this comprehensive guide to Deluge.
Not all popular clients support proxy configuration. In fact, some popular clients have deprecated its support due to data leaks, while others have maintained it. Below is a brief list of the current landscape of proxy support on popular torrent clients.
Using a torrent proxy is the best idea if you want to remain anonymous without compromising torrent speed and performance. Using a VPN while torrenting obviously has the benefit of encryption and IP masking, but generally, if configured properly, a SOCKS5 proxy from a reliable provider (not free) should be as secure as a VPN (if not more).
The most popular torrent clients, like BitTorrent, uTorrent, Deluge, qBittorrent, Vuze, etc., come with built-in proxy setting support. You can, not only configure proxy settings for these clients but also set up additional options to lower the risk of a data leak.

This is a walkthrough on how to setup uTorrent for your particular internet connection. It is recommended that you follow these steps in order, since the guide assumes that previous settings have been enabled. 1. Testing your connection speed Since you will always be uploading at your maximum speed, torrent clients need to be configured according to maximum upload speed in order to avoid choking your connection. So you will need to test your connection: 2. Setting your upload speed Go to Options > Setup Guide Select the listing closest to your upload speed result (rounding down as necessary) Higher settings will not give you better speed, and may in fact make download speeds worse. Too low of an upload speed will give the same result. So don't try to be greedy. Click the "Use Selected Settings" button at the bottom of the Speed guide window. 3. Tweaking the upload speed The Speed Guide is great for setting up a variety of variables but it does fall short if your test speed falls half way between two of the possible speeds listed. Take your upload speed result in kbit/s and divide it by 8 (you now have your result in kBytes.) Take your speed in kByte/s and multiply it by 0.7 (this now gives you a proper upload speed of 70% of you tested max) Go to Options > Preferences > Bandwidth and put your result in the "Maximum upload rate" box. 4. Enabling Protocol Encryption Some ISPs (Internet Service Providers) actively interfere with P2P activities in order to reduce their bandwidth requirements. This causes uTorrent, and other file sharing download speeds to become slow. To avoid this, BitTorrent, uTorrent, and other clients have introduced an encryption protocol to prevent ISPs from identifying BitTorrent traffic. Go to Options > Preferences > uTorrent. Set Outgoing under Protocol Encryption to Enable, check "Allow incoming legacy connections". Some ISPs have extremely aggressive throttling methods and for those users it might be necessary to set outgoing to Forced; however this will greatly reduce the number of peers you can connect to. Enabled is sufficient for most users. 5. Authorizing uTorrent in your firewall People using the Microsoft Windows XP/Vista firewall: Go to Options > Preferences > Connection, check "Add uTorrent to Windows Firewall." This is enabled by default. People using other firewalls: You will need to refer to your software's own documentation. Trying it out The client should now be set properly for your connection. You can test your speed with any torrent of your choice.

Jackett works as a proxy server: it translates queries from apps (Sonarr, Radarr, SickRage, CouchPotato, Mylar, DuckieTV, qBittorrent, etc) into tracker-site-specific http queries, parses the html response, then sends results back to the requesting software. This allows for getting recent uploads (like RSS) and performing searches. Jackett is a single repository of maintained indexer scraping & translation logic - removing the burden from other apps.
The indexers gives Radarr the ability to search for torrent which will be passedto the download client. Here we use Jackett to format popular sites such as KickassTorrent so that Radarr knows how to search them.
When running a torrent client, you will probably want to be doing it behind a VPN.You can do it directly on your router but what if you change it one day and forget that you had transmission running ?
Instead of downloading a file from a single server, with BitTorrent you download pieces of that file from other users across the globe who have the same file on their PC (hence peer-to-peer). The file or group of files you download is called a torrent, sharing those files is called seeding, and the group of people you download from is called a swarm. The more people connected to a given swarm, seeding a file, the faster you'll be able to download that file.
Downloading files with BitTorrent is a bit more complicated than just clicking a link in your web browser. Most browsers don't have built-in support for BitTorrent, so you need a specific program, called a BitTorrent client, that knows how to download and assemble the pieces of a file in a torrent.
I'm personally a fan of qBittorrent(Opens in a new window), a free open-source client that's easy to use, available on multiple platforms, and provides a good amount of advanced features for those who like to dig in. Other popular programs include Transmission(Opens in a new window), and Deluge(Opens in a new window). We'll discuss the differences between all these in a future article. 2b1af7f3a8
