    You can use both VPN and proxy services. But i prefer VPN services because it is easy way in linux for getting torrent. I use http://www.novelvpn.com services

    Torrenting over a proxy doesn’t add any security to torrenting. Anyone monitoring the network that would recognize torrent traffic would still see that kind of traffic between you and the proxy. The only added benefit of using a proxy would be a temporary work around any competent IT department’s lockout methods.

    if u have proxy adress use it in Deluge ( i m using it ). but unlike utorrent it only uses first tracker so speed is slow on Deluge .

    or (though it is unsafe ) u can use tor and put 127.0.0.1:9050 in socks for Deluge .

    You can set system-wide proxy settings in the Networks settings, but most BitTorrent clients also support proxies. Either method will work.
