Remote Pairing not working with a Proxy
#1
I am trying to get Remote Pairing to work, but when I go to set it up, it says "Vuze isn't accessible outside your local network."

I've set up port forwarding, and Windows Firewall, but it seems to be my proxy that's causing the issue.  I'm using a TorGuard proxy.  When I disable the proxy in Vuze, I do not have an issue with the Remote Pairing.

How can I get Vuze Remote Pairing to work with the proxy?  Is there someway that I can have the Remote Pairing ignore the proxy?  I don't really need Remote Pairing to be going throughte proxy.

First off if you want privacy get a VPN.  Proxies are not recommended for torrenting if you are at all concerned with being connectible and or your upload speed.  Since you are trying to access your Vuze remotely make sure that the VPN you choose allows you to forward ports (not all of them allow that).

Secondly proxies do not allow you to forward ports so as soon as I read the title of this I knew what the problem was.  LOL  Of course it works when you disable the proxy -- because you can be connectible when not using a proxy but you can not be connectible when using a proxy.

If you insist on using a proxy and you want to have ports forwarded . . . to the best of my knowledge this is not possible . . . but if it is ask the folks that supply you with the proxy -- they will have a definitive answer.

As far as being able to only use the proxy for some of the traffic Vuze generates . . . you will have to wait for one of the Vuze staffers to answer but I seriously doubt that is currently possible.

Actually, I haven't had any trouble with downloaoding / uploading for torrents using a proxy - I'm getting great download / upload speeds on any torrent I try.

I'm not interested in a VPN because:
a)  It's more expensive
b)  I don't want all my internet traffic getting slowed down, when I only need security/anonymity for my torrents.

Anyway, I was able to resolve my own issue.  Even though the remote pairing app doesn't work, I can simply point a browser to my non-proxy IP address, along with the web pairing port, and I get a nice clean interface to control Vuze remotely.  It's something I haven't even seen advertised anywhere.  So if your external IP (without proxy) is 1.2.3.4, and Vuze Remote Pairing is set up to use port 9999, then you can just point your browser at http://1.2.3.4:9999 and you have remote control of your Vuze, and it even works when you have a proxy configured.

Perhaps the Remote Pairing app is somehow better, but this is more than sufficient.

You think a VPN is slower than a proxy????  That contradicts every single thing I have ever read about VPN's and proxies.  

I am glad you found a solution . . . and that the proxy is working well enough for you . . . but I have never heard of a proxy that gives you your full speed from your ISP.  They are always slower.  Where as a VPN because it is a single connection (not bouncing around up to several hundred IP's like a proxy ) is pretty much always going to be faster.  But again if you are happy with a proxy . . . great!

I don't think a VPN is slower than a proxy, but it's slower than using no VPN or proxy at all.  If I use a VPN for torrents, then that slows down web browsing, gaming, and other online activities.  If I use a proxy, then I can have just my torrents slowed down, and everything else runs at full speed.

Ahh that is a different story.  Your ISP is shaping you . . . so you have to use a VPN or proxy to circumvent your ISP's efforts.  If you are not being traffic shaped . . . there is no way a proxy would be faster than your native connection.

You should just be able to use the VPN for your torrents and not your whole connection just like you are doing with your proxy.  But again if you are happy with the results there is no reason to change anything.
