I don't think there is any that are free but if there were some then don't expect good download speeds. It would probably be like using dial up.

Thanks. :D

There probably isn't any, I'd just buy a torrent friendly VPN for a good price.

Once installed, the P2P file sharing program searches for the relevant torrent files; if found, the files are broken down into pieces and is distributed amongst the other systems interconnected to the network. This process continues without putting extra burden on the servers, until the files are completely downloaded on the system. best torrent vpn Ivacy

FrootVPN used to be free and P2P enabled but they changed that now.

I used Cyberghost and it works fine for me, of course only the paid accounts get P2P function.

Another way I was exploring was to use proxy servers to download the torrents through however all the proxies I found were either too slow or not configured properly for P2P traffic.

I sometimes wonder if posters bother reading what an OP is asking for, in this case, specifically, free and P2P compatible. Note, the first requirement rules out paid VPNs.

it's also not true that no free VPN supports torrents. I don't know if 10GB a month is enough, but Windscribe is an excellent VPN that has a free option:
https://windscribe.com/

There have been fairly recent Windscribe giveaway offers, mainly on ***, for a much higher monthly allowance. I got one for 50GB per month a while back, so have a lookout for those. This was the offer, as mentioned here on Malwaretips:
Windscribe VPN SE - 1 Year 50 GB/month

Okay Freedom VPN is another that has frequent free giveaways especially on ***. I'm not sure if it's still P2P friendly though. It's been mentioned on Malwaretips on a number of occasions:

Very good point there !

And let's throw another factor into the mix - logging.

VPN Gate comes to mind .

Purely from memory , it is a Japanese University project and is "torrent friendly" , it is free , but I'm fairly certain that they keep logs .

It is a long time since I tried it and things may have changed , so I strongly recommend that any would-be users check the details carefully .

Update
I looked over the VPN Gate website again , and I can't see anything about download capping or torrents not being allowed

I use EasyHideIP. What's great is that their licenses are good for one PC, one laptop, and one phone. So you can cover almost all of your devices!

:)I would recommend a paid VPN; EkspressVPN They allow torrenting and your secrets is safe with them, they have no logging policy, and I think that is what you are looking for;)

Windscribe looks like no longer supports P2P according to reddit

Windscribe disables P2P access on all US locations, India, and Egypt. • /r/vpnreviews

freevpn.me

But first you have to download OpenVPN

Then download the "certificate bundle" from the freevpn.me site. Then, extracted, placed in the OpenVPN config folder. Then use the unsername and pass on the freevpn.me site to connect to the vpn server

But before you connect to the server open the config file or files with notepad and below the gibberish enter "block-outside-dns" (without quotes) and then hit save
