‘Is Zamunda down for good?’ This has been one of the most frequently asked questions during the last couple of days. Reason - large general private torrent tracker Zamunda.Net has been inaccessible for most international users in the past two weeks (by ‘international’ we mean most countries outside Bulgaria, which is the home of Zamunda). We have tried to contact site admins to find the reason behind the downtime but so far had no success. Anyways judging from the responses we got we can only assume that the site was/is unreachable for significant number of its 600000+ strong user base. For those still having issues with the site, here’s a possible workaround that’ll get you in, at least until the problems are fully resolved.


During all this time, Zamunda’s BitTorrent tracker has been working for all users from almost every country – it’s only the web interface that’s been inaccessible. As we mentioned earlier even the website has been reachable from Bulgarian IP ranges (so technically, Zamunda is not down). Perhaps they are having international peering issues just like trackers such as LastTorrents and ArenaBG which went though similar issues sometime back (now resolved). Solution is simple (and is similar to the one mentioned by ArenaBG’s staff when it had the same problem) – use a Bulgarian proxy to access the site.

Proxy will only be required to browse the site and to download .torrent files to hard disk. Since the tracker is working for all users there will be no need to proxyfy tracker URL. Some Bulgarian proxy sites and servers that we found to be working are listed below:

  • http://proxy-bg.info/ – Web interface. Just type in the URL and start browsing

To make use of the last two proxy servers, you’ll have to change your browser’s proxy configuration. This is easy. To configure FireFox browser to access sites through (3128 is the port number) do the following:

  1. Open FireFox
  2. Go to Tools—>Options—>Network
  3. Press the ‘Settings button under under ‘Configure how FireFox connects to the Internet’
  4. Change the settings as shown in screenshot below

FireFox Proxy Configuration

Important: Make sure you do not access other private torrent trackers through proxy servers. Most trackers will instantly ban you for it so change these settings whenever you want to access them. As far as I am aware, this is not an issue on Zamunda. In addition, your regular web browsing speeds may also become slower when accessed through a proxy server.

For those who don’t know about Zamunda, here’s some info. It’s a huge General/0Day tracker with lots of movies, music, games, Ebooks and more. The site indexes over 70000 active torrents and has a user base of over half a million members. To read more about Zamunda.Net and why it’s such as popular tracker, refer to following articles:

  18. L // 11/18/2009 06:30:00 PM  

    All above PROXIES not working.

  19. TEAM FILEnetworks // 11/18/2009 11:21:00 PM  

    More Bulgaian proxies:

    (You'll have to configure FireFox to use these).

    Sorry about that. You can configure IE easily.
    Go to tools -- Internet Options --> Connections

    Select your internet connection and hit settings button to the right. You can edit proxy settings there.

  20. Rafal // 11/18/2009 11:49:00 PM  

    I assume that everybody wants to connect using this proxy so it's overloaded :D

  21. anoop // 11/19/2009 02:31:00 AM  

    Hey I am having trouble configuring IE. Please help.

  22. eddy atkin // 11/19/2009 02:47:00 PM  

    Here's an instruction I cp from



    Open: Mozilla Firefox
    Tools > Options > Advanced > Network (Connection) > Settings
    Manual Proxy configuration > port 3128
    > Use this server for all protocols (NO tick) (All other fields there MUST be empty) > ОК


    I have to edit something on that .. If you go to Manual Proxy you will lagg so just use it for getting your film your pictures or your porn or what ever you make your Proxy you go to zamunda you download what you want to download and when your done with zamunda you go back to Options and delete it you will see the difference.. you will lagg a bit .. hope i helped

  23. Lightning_Struck_Tower // 11/19/2009 04:58:00 PM  

    @eddy atkin,
    That link has information already posted in this article. Thanks anyway.

  28. Woytas // 11/23/2009 12:50:00 AM  

    @ixxi Doesn't work anymore

  29. Vanguish // 11/23/2009 12:51:00 PM  

    Strange - what´s going on here ? Conspiracy?
    I was using one of these Bulgarian proxies to succesfully access www.zamunda.net: : 3128

    Worked fine at the beginning. But then one after the other died.

    And now even the web-proxies start to die.


    reports me a 403 Forbidden Error. This site was working - and pretty fast - till yesterday!

  30. Woytas // 11/23/2009 01:53:00 PM  

    Working on http://leather-bg.com/ but very slow

  32. Vanguish // 11/23/2009 03:47:00 PM  

    Yes, http://leather-bg.com/
    seems to be the only proxy that is left working.
    The only one left - Strange!

    I followed up discussions about Zamunda on this site as well:

    The site has by far not that quality that this BLOGGER has - but it was still quite informative in the Zamunda case. And guess what happened?
    It was still online yesterday - and is down since today like the rest of the BG proxies.

    Now I do not want to start a political discussion here, but I really have the feeling, internet is about to loose its freedom.

    Will be interesting to watch when http://leather-bg.com/ will be no longer accessable.

    The "European-US-internet regulators" are reading this blog and following their Chinese collegues.

    Maybe I am exaggerating. But don´t you think it is strange? I never watched such concentrated actions being taken so quickly - can it really just be coincidence?

  33. Lightning_Struck_Tower // 11/24/2009 12:00:00 AM  

    I think proxies are failing because of the sudden increase of traffic. They never were that reliable anyway but useful in cases such as this.

  34. searcher // 11/24/2009 01:09:00 AM  

    http://www.data-bg.org works for all, but only in bulgarian language.

  35. Christos // 11/24/2009 12:47:00 PM  

    This was posted from the admin of zamunda:
    Well this topic is about foreign users who are accessing Zamunda with some kind of a proxy or modifying their browsers network proxy connection.

    Well I'm posting this here ,because this is the place that most of people will go to ask some kind of question about the foreign restrictions.I saw lots of topics about that the foreign Zamunda users can't access the tracker.With this topic we can save lots of useless topics asking why someone can't access Zamunda from UK , Spain , Canada , Holland or any other place all around the world.

    The problem is not from you.Its not your internet provider ,you are not banned or whatever reason you believe.The tracker has problems and as soon the problem is resolved you will be able to download & share files with anyone.The Zamunda staff is working hard to resolve this problem ,so stay tuned.I saw people that twit Zamunda for the restrictions and that the tracker shares only with Bulgarian people and doesn't want to give access all over the world.Zamunda is not a selfish website that shares content only with some people.As you can see Zamunda shares FREE any kind of files without any viruses inside or requiring any fees that you need to pay!

    This issue can be found within this topic answered by the staff ,but in Bulgarian.I will translate it for you and for further to stop asking dummy questions.Well you can anytime read this topic and know what is the real problem.So tell your friends that they are not banned or somehow suspended from Zamunda.NET

  36. Šuco // 11/26/2009 06:02:00 AM

    Thank you for your kind words my friend but if you notice I am not the only one with the problem. Zamunda is the best torrent site I known till now free of virus and with fantastic speed …. Instead of talking like this, read the rest of the blog to understand that from the 25 the tracker is saying “connection error (socket exception: connection rest) “ if you have a solution write it down other wise you can join a lot of blogs for your level :)

    This is crap.... It was awesome while i was still living in Macedonia... absolutely no problems with accessing any webpage, especially zamunda.net

    Moved to U.S. and i miss zamunda.net!!!

    The proxies do not work for me for some reason, i cant even access any web pages at all when using the proxies!
    And im pretty sure im doing everything right... Using google chrome, and tried Mozzila as well.
    As for accessing through the sites like http://proxy-bg.com they are usually down, or it gives me a "403 error message (Forbidden?)"

    Any help ?

  66. Добромир // 2/19/2012 03:58:00 PM  

    And one new bulgarian proxy http://proxybg.net from which you can access zamunda.
