If you're using a VPN or proxy in order to hide your true IP address, checking your torrent IP address will be very helpful. The two free tools that let you check your torrent IP address quickly and easily are IPMagnet and checkmytorrentip.upcoil.com. Here is the way you can check it (for IPMagnet).
How to check your torrent IP address
Go to IPMagnet.
Click the 'Magnet Link' hyperlink to generate a unique tracking link. Open it in your favorite torrent client.
Make sure that your IP addresses for both browser and torrent client are what you want.
The torrent IP here is different from the browser IP address because this setup is using an anonymous proxy for torrents and a VPN for the entire internet connection.
Now you can easily check your torrent IP address without returning to the website.
- Open your torrent client
- Click on the tracking torrent
- Go to the 'Trackers' tab and you'll see something like this (this demo used utorrent but it works for any client)
Make sure your 'status' section is wide enough to display the full ip address.
