    I'm not sure how well you know the F-Secure UI, but have you checked in the Application Control list (I'm using the Beta, it may be called something different in the retail version) to see if the BitTorrent client has been blocked?


    FWIW, I use qBittorrent with FS, and I don't have any issues.

    Hi willows,


    Since you mentioned you're using the London location, please check this article regarding Freedome and Bit Torrent.

    Have used all your locations and its still no good, had you advertised that it was limited for torrent use i and i am sure others would not have touched it

    I notice that this issue affects connecting to peers. If you connect to peers outside of freedome, then enable the VPN afterwards, it'll work.


    I'm using the Toronto server.
