Configure OpenVPN Connect for only qbit

Post by germ » Wed Jan 26, 2022 12:40 am

Hello All,

Forgive me if this is an old topic. I searched the forum for a solution, but I'm not having any luck. Hopefully someone can lead me in the right direction.

My VPN provider recently killed my socks5 proxy, and has essentially forced me to openVPN. My socks5 proxy was perfect for what I needed in a vpn - magnet links and torrents. This service was performed on my media server and qbittorrent was the only application using the vpn, as netflix and other services were having issues with the vpn connection. The openvpn connect send all traffic to their gateway when turned on.

I cannot figure out how to configure the openvpn connect to only work with qbit.

Can someone please advise? I've pasted my client config below. The only modification that I made is to the auto authentication so that it connects on startup.

TIA.

client
dev tun
proto udp
remote us5.east.zoogvpn.com 1194

Hi TinCan Tech.

My version is 3.3.4 (2600). I had to use this version, as OpenVPN Gui wouln't connect on startup.
