Binding Vuze to SoftEther VPNGate VPN
#1
Is anyone using the VPNGate VPN (run by the National University of Tsukuba)? By any chance, does anyone what the name for this is in Vuze's list of interfaces in "Advanced Network Settings", in order to bind Vuze to it?

From the Vuze Wiki http://wiki.vuze.com/w/Proxies_And_VPNs
Quote:... you can set some configuration option in Vuze to explicitly tell it to use that interface. This can be an advantage if your VPN connection is unreliable - if it fails, rather than the OS falling back to routing packets though the public IP network Vuze will continue to explictly attempt to route those packets through the VPN (which will fail, but at least the packets won't have be sent elsewhere)

Vuze options are documented here. First set your Mode to 'Advanced'. Next go to Connections->Advanced Network Settings and locate the interface name for your VPN (e.g. eth<number>;). Enter this interface name in the 'Bind to local IP address or interface' box. Now scroll down to the bottom and check the 'Enforce IP bindings even when interfaces are not available' option.

Many thanks (apologies for the question -- there are so many in my list and none seem to correspond to the VPNGate VPN).

Depending on what system you are on (win, mac, etc) you will see a different set of options in the list of available adapters.

On my windows 7 machine my VPN, (not the same as yours) creates the "TAP-Win32 Adapter V9" and that is my VPN. There are other TAP adapters that have additional information but those are not correct for me. I think that the above adapter is the same for most VPN's but I could be mistaken.

On my mac vuze will sometimes actually detect the VPN and ask me to bind it. If it doesn't my VPN appears as "tun0" as in VPN tunnel.

This could vary depending on if your VPN provider is a IPSEC / L2TP and/or OpenVPN type. When I had my issues setting it up on my windows machine for the first time I did a little googling to figure out what the different adapters would likely be and found my answers pretty readily.

Hope this helps!!
