Side Notes

When using Vuze with a proxy, incoming connections are not supported (
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."
Vuze indicates the status of the SOCKS proxy in the bottom right corner. If you see it switching from yellow to green and vice versa, it is normal and this happens when Vuze is switching servers. No need to worry though as nothing will download without going through our servers when this is happenning!
