Does anyone know a good proxy to use when downloading files using UTorrent 1.7.2 and PeerGuardian 2?

Why would you need a proxy when downloading files using UTorrent 1.7.2 and PeerGuardian 2?

Does it matter? :scratchhead:
If I wasn't using PeerGuardian 2 and only UTorrent, could you answer my question? What would be a good proxy server to use?

www.proxyfoxy.com
http://www.silentsurf.com

Those two work, though I recommend Tor, and it's free:

You still have to be careful what you download though, file sharing is a good way to get infected with Malware.

I was just curious.

I never had to use a proxy for any P2P sharing program, so I thought this would be a good learning experience to find out why someone would need one.

I can also vouch for Tor.

I think it stems from paranoia about RIAA and other malicious types being able to supposedly trace back to a source in file-sharing networks.
After all is invested in correctness, then how does it stand with truth?

Thanks for the help! Tor seems to be working correctly. The only side-effect I see is UTorrent seems to be slowed on the download side. Is this normal, or is there any way to speed it up?

That's normal, there's not much you can do about it. It's a side-effect of Tor.

If you haven't already, you can open a port for your utorrent. Go to www.portfoward.com and it'll teach you how. IT considerable speeds up utorrent. And if tor slows down your computer too much, you can use JAP. It runs faster for me
