I currently use a service called TorGuard to mask my IP on trackers, etc... They provide a VPN client provided by Viscosity. I constantly have to battle with keeping it connected. It's almost like a dead man trigger.

I was thinking about trying to use the built in windows tools to try and establish a VPN tunnel to them. Anyone ever try this?

Pete, Thanks for all your hard work! Best application ever and one of the few I have ever paid for... Good work deserves cash!

TorGuard has been proven many times to not successfully mask identity. Use a combination of a standard VPN client (I use PIA) and good ole PeerBlock with some decent IP blocklists.

Any blocklist suggestions? The built in lists are subscription only now, and I haven't heard many good things about them
