Side Notes

When using Vuze with a proxy, incoming connections are not supported (http://wiki.vuze.com/w/Proxy_support).
This means you will have a yellow smiley face next to your downloads and you will be receiving warnings from Vuze "Listen server socket on ... does not appear to be accepting inbound connections."
