3. Manually configure VPN
Another way to troubleshoot the issues with VPN and Vuze is to manually configure the VPN protocol. This can be done within the Advanced settings section.
The usual procedure includes automatic configuring, mainly by utilizing VPN Helper plug-ins. Just as an example, there is a Vuze VPN Helper for Private Internet Access and you can use this plugin to troubleshoot PIA not set up properly.
However, there are many things that can go wrong and you’ll be forced to use a by-hand approach in order to fix the error.
Some users said that everything worked great and the issues suddenly emerged, which points towards updates as the main reason for the error at hand.
Now, this might be the router update as well. So check router settings, too, and make sure that Firewall isn’t blocking encrypted connections like PPTP or L2TP.
If you’re not sure how to configure VPN manually, follow the steps we provided below:
Enable VPN and open Vuze.Choose Mode from the left pane.Now, choose Connection > Advanced Network settings.Save changes and try using Vuze again. The Routing gauge needs to turn green in order for the client to work.
4. Change protocol and server (P2P server)
VPN-wise, there are also one or two things you can try out. Firstly, we recommend switching your encryption protocol to another one and try connecting.
We would start with the PPTP which is the fastest one (and least secure) and move through the list. The sweet spot is reserved for OpenVPN which emphasizes fast bandwidth and up-to-256-bit encryption.
Moreover, it’s important to know that not every available server supports P2P sharing. Thus, shifting between the various servers can be a solution to your issue.
Furthermore, we recommend contacting your VPN provider to find out which exact server or geo-location supports torrenting.
That should do it. In case you have any questions or suggestions, make sure to tell us in the comments section below.
