Vuze/Authentication Failure

Rate this question



I am currently running Vuze on a Win7 x64 machine, using the following setup:


Host: proxy.torguard.tg

Port: 1080

Username: [myusername]

Password: [mypassword]


However, everytime I try to test the connection, I get the following message:


Testing SOCKS connection to proxy.torguard.tg:1080..........................................................

Connect timeout


If I use any of the IP addresses in the members area, I get an authentication error:


Testing SOCKS connection to

Proxy connect failed, SOCKS 5: authentication fails [status=1]



How do I get around these errors in order to use Vuze with the torrent proxy?

I'm having this issue as well. I haven't touched any settings and all of a sudden I can no longer authenticate. If I try to go to the client area and change my password, I also receive an error that states "Password Change Failed!" Are you sure there's not some authentication issue going on?
