3. I do not think you can force it up. I would have to go through the settings manually with you. No time today, maybe tomorrow.
This page on VPN may help you get it set up:
http://wiki.vuze.com/w/Proxies_And_V..._Configuration
4. According to the people at Vuze, once the settings are in place all communications will run through the VPN, so if the VPN goes down or is not working properly Vuze will not send or receive.
I forgot to include the screen shots Thank you for the help. I looked at your link. I will set up Vuze as it says, and post back here tomorrow.

Regards,

The hardest part (and it is not that hard) is determining which IP address to bind to. Something that will help if you do not recognize it is to run a command line and type ipconfig /all. Look through the results and generally the VPN will have a 10.x.x.x address. My Vuze shows the IPv6 associated with the VPN, so also make note of the IPv6 associated with that 10.x.x.x address when looking on the Vuze list at Advanced Network Connections. Some more info on possible private IP addresses
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Private_network

In my case it was eth4 and I entered eth4 in the "Bind to local IP or interface" box.

Also enable the 3 options just below the list
Check IP at startup
Enfore IP bindings
Show status icon

Disable the 3 IPv6 options at the bottom

Press Save

The command prompt showed the VPN as "Local Area Network 2". It has the typical 10.x.x.x IP address that you mention. For good measure, I disconnected the VPN and the command prompt showed "media disconnected". That seems to clinch the issue.

Neither the command prompt nor Vuze Advanced Network Connections, show any IPv6 associated with this VPN, because I have disabled "Internet Protocol Version 6(TCP/IPv6), in Network Connection Status>Properties of 1. Wireless Network 2. Local Area Connection 2 (VPN). I guess that is why it is not displayed.

In Vuze - Advanced Network Connections, the VPN IP is shown against ath9. This is now entered in "Bind to local IP or interface" box. The three options are enabled:-
Check IP at startup
Enfore IP bindings
Show status icon

The 3 IPv6 options are disabled.

I also disabled some items from "Connections". Please see screenshot. I am not sure which of these to enable. Could you help.

Everything is "Saved"

Under Peer sources, the incoming connections should be disabled if your VPN does not support incoming connections.

On the Networks, I would think that the Public IP network should be enabled. The other two not enabled. That would be the regular bittorrent network and since you are going through the VPN it should be anonymous for you. If you are getting decent speeds with it disabled, then I guess that is OK.

Other than that it looks like you got it set up.

Not sure what was going on with the IPv6 for mine, though it was the VPNs IPv6 not mine. Anyhow, the fact that yours was not showing could not be bad, given the other crazy stuff we have seen.

Yes sir, we sure have seen some crazy stuff! IPv6 being the star of the show.

How can I know whether my VPN supports incoming connections?

Regards,

Best to contact the VPN.

I heard back from DirectVPN. Apparently there is no way to stop the IPv6 leak at this time. They are hoping to put something to remedy this in the next release. Shame, nice speeds and bandwidth allowance in their free version.

Yes, it is a pity with Direct VPN. What is difficult to fathom is, why IPv6 was not taken into consideration at the initial stages of these VPNs.

Would you be checking how the rest of the VPNs deal with this particular vulnerability? This has become one of my pet subjects. Please keep me updated with your progress in this, as well as all other matters concerning VPN. If I find anything new, I shall do the same.

Best regards,

With the issues about IPv6, I have put my VPN testing back a bit and am going to start my testing of bittorrent clients soon.

My knowledge of the security issues on VPNs is not that good and I did not feel comfortable with a review until I got some more information to make sense of the IPv6 issue.

The absence of support from others in this thread seem to indicate that no one is able to help much, at least at this time. I believe the IPv6 issue needs to be resolved, to complement the page, "Best Free Anonymous Surfing Services" here.

I hope someone will take this up in the near future.

Whenever you find something new, please update me.

Thank you,

Best regards,
