Finding torrent clients compatible with one's choice of a VPN (virt private network)

To underscore Rodney's point: There is software that can read your torrent cache of completed torrents through a peer connection. Best to clean that out regularly.

Sigh...

Further testing with JSTorrent reveals that it does NOT get protected by Browsec VPN.
So, don't waste your time trying JSTorrent with Browsec.

Key thing to understand, and I *must* shout it!
THE INTERNET IS NOT THE WEB.
The web is *part* of the internet. It runs on browsers off HTTP and HTTPS ports/protocols.

P2P, as in Torrent clients (and servers) does NOT run off the Web. You must enable special software for it to even recognize web traffic.

Traditionally, VPNs started out as expensive commercial routers that enabled full encryption between the different sites of a company/corporation. Then software versions emerged, which virtualized a network card\connection and handled all IPV4 connections (I *believe* IPV6 is handled differently). This is at the lowest 'level' . OpenVPN is the classic example of this.

Then TOR and other encrypting proxies like Psiphon emerged. These sit on top of client software, such as Firefox, Torbrowser, Chrome, etc. The software uses a *normal* connection, but sends and receives encrypted/obfuscated data from the *web services* . With a few extra twists apparently you can technically term some of these 'services' like the 'free VPN' offered on the Opera browser as a VPN, but only in the loosest of senses, and only for the HTTP and HTTPS protocols. They will not handle P2P uploads/downloads, as the protocols necessary are not built into them. They require appropriate client software to interface to.

One *possible* exception might be FTP. All browsers seem to be able to handle it, but then again all OSs come with it installed. Dunno if a 'VPN Browser' would encrypt FTP traffic.

Back to TOR.
There is TorBrowser, which only handles Web straffic
TOR can also be configured as a *network connection* much like a 'normal' VPN.
Problem is that TOR is not designed for high bandwidth, and trying to stream/download multimedia or warez across is considered extremely bad manners and damaging to the network. It would also be quite slow!
