VPN woes
#1
I'm using Vuze on an older Mac Pro (OSX 7.5) and I'm using TunnelBlick with BTGuard.  Everything has been working great for years.  

I recently upgraded TunnelBlick...and Vuze has been unable to download since then.

I'm still connecting to BTGuard just fine.

I've downloaded a new version of Vuze, I re-checked all my settings...nothing works.  All I get is a connection error.  If I try the "Test SOCKS" button in the Preferences>Connection>Proxy tab, I get the following message:

Testing SOCKS connection to proxy.btguard.com:1025.
Connect failed, Network is unreachable

However, the SOCKS icon in the lower right corner of the window is green.

In the Sources tab, the status of all the trackers is: Error: Offline - SOCKS authentication failed
HTTP Seeds status is: Unavailable

All my torrents have a red health status and I show 0 seeds and 0 peers.

I'm outta ideas and could use some help.  thanks.

So you are running BTGuard over a VPN? If so perhaps you could try both in isolation (turn off the VPN, remove any network interface bindings you may have set up under Tools->Options->Connection->Advanced Network Settings and download some well-known torrent over BTGuard; clear all SOCKS settings, connect the VPN and do the same).

If they both work independently then I can't think why they wouldn't work combined :(
