Overwhelmed With Setting Options

edited June 2017 in Mac OS X VPN Setup Posts: 2
Finally signed up, running PIA on imac with OS Sierra, use Transmission as a BitTorrent client, and have a combo modem/router.  Don't have firewall on computer at moment. After reading some of these posts, I am getting overwhelmed with people asking about settings for proxies, ports, firewalls, etc... 

All I want is privacy from prying eyes, and to keep my real IP address blocked.  I'm pretty sure that everything is working correctly, I have been assigned a different IP address, from a different service provider in a different city. I have tested the security, and confirmed that this new IP address is what other websites are seeing. Should I assume that I don't need to mess with any of my various imac/ torrent client/ PIA/ modem settings at this point?
