The error can also occur when there is an issue with your computer’s operating system. Sometimes, it is possible that common device errors or server problems cause this error. Usually, you need to perform a few troubleshooting steps to fix this error.
If you’re using a VPN that is built on OpenVPN, make sure that your VPN adapter is able to send and receive traffic only within the range that the VPN adapter allows and blocks all other traffic.
If you use a PPTTP VPN, you should be able to block connections to and from your ‘real’ IP address, and you should allow everything else to connect.
It is important that the rules are consistent with the IP address range of your VPN adapter, for both logging in and logging out. It would be good if the rules were created in order to strictly govern one thing.
Allow TCP or UDP to reach the [VPN range] range.
Allow TCP and UDP from your [VPN range] to access your torrent port.
Block all the other things.
Do not forget that you also need to set up equivalent global rules if you are adding a block ip to the list of rules.
First, you should make sure that the client is working before you put the VPN on it. Even if these are listed for uTorrent, the principle of the ping-to-p2p protocol remains the same. When you get your VPN set up, substitute the In/Out rules for the VPN range.
The final thing you can do is call customer service to get this error fixed. You can also contact them by calling their customer service number or by visiting their website.
