Network Adapters – VPN Lock

Network Adapters is used to force Koinonein BitTorrent Client to only use a particular adapter or adapters.

Most VPN’s will give you a specific adapter when you use their service, in the picture above TunnelBear is chosen as the VPN provider.

For Koinonein BitTorrent Client to only use VPN adapter simply go to Settings > Client Options then check the adapter and click Apply.

If the VPN drops out for any reason Koinonein BitTorrent Client won’t use any other adapter.

If the adapter is unavailable when Koinonein BitTorrent Client starts then Koinonein BitTorrent Client won’t connect at all.


Network adapter lock

If checked Koinonein BitTorrent Client will only use the currently checked network adapters.

If you uncheck this then that has the same effect as deselecting all adapters then clicking Apply however if you check this no change will happen until you click Apply.

There is no fall back option so if Koinonein BitTorrent Client is started and the network adapter is unavailable Koinonein won’t be able to connect until you set a new adapter or reconnect the missing adapter.


When clicked Koinonein BitTorrent Client will connect to all adapters if Network Adapter Lock is unchecked or just connect to the checked adapters if Network Adapter Lock is checked.

Changes take a few seconds to implement as all connections get closed and then the new connections opened.

You can press F9 at any time to get the currently used adapters entered into the log.


Rechecks what adapters are available.
