This question already has an answer here:

I know that even official Tor project website clearly says that it's bad idea to use torrents over Tor.

Just want to clarify. If I understand correctly, to run torrents over Tor I have to run TBB and then specify in Torrent Client to use SOCKS5 proxy (IP and port of the machine which runs TBB for example if I run both apps on the same machine.)

Do I compromise my anonymity in any way if I just run TBB and Transmission(without using SOCKS proxy) on the same machine simultaneously?

My network is behind the NAT (just in case it makes any difference)

This question was merged with How can BitTorrent traffic be anonymized with Tor? because it is an exact duplicate of that question.
