How to Surf Anonymously With Vuze


Vuze supports the anonymous surfing and downloading of torrents via its peer-to-peer network sharing capabilities. By default, the software goes through your Internet Protocol address, but you can change that by using a proxy address. A proxy address lets you surf anonymously without having your IP address tracked by third-party software or servers. Setting up proxy support on Vuze is an advanced feature.

  • Double-click the "Vuze" icon on your computer's desktop, then go to the "Tools" menu and click "Options."

  • Click the "Mode" from the left column and click the "Advanced" radio button on the right panel.

  • Double-click the "Connection" option from the left side, then uncheck all the boxes from the "Peer Sources" section, except for "From a Tracker."

  • Go back to the left column, then click the "Proxy Options" choice and check the boxes for "Enable Proxying of Tracker Communications" and "I Have a SOCKS Proxy." Enter the appropriate proxy server settings in the host, port, username and password fields.

  • Go to the "Peer Communications" section and check the boxes for "Enable Proxying of Peer Communications," "Inform Tracker of Limitation" and "Use Same Proxy Settings for Tracker and Peer Communications Proxy." Click the "Save" button.

  • Go to the "File" menu and click "Restart Vuze." For the proxy settings to take effect, you must restart the application.
