For your information site uses TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_GCM_SHA256 128 BIT KEYS, 128bit keys, TLS 1.2 encryption, Vuze gives error like "Error: Offline - SSLHandshakeException: Received fatal alert: handshake failure", I am using latest versions of Firefox 56.0.2 32bit, Java 8 biuld 1.8.0_152-b16, vuze 22.214.171.124, As per Vuze about details (Java 1.8.0_121 (32 bit) Oracle Corporation c:\program files\vuze\jre SWT v4716, win32 Windows 8 v6.2, x86 (32 bit) V126.96.36.199/4 az2) I have attempted following steps to resolve the same... >>> Attempted steps provided at vuze forum regarding "Unlimited jurisdiction policy" (Thread-handshake-failure-SSL-error), also installed policy files to “C:\Program Files\Vuze\jre\lib\security” folder >>> Imported site's certificate to java, >>> Enabled TLS 1.2 in internet settings (Control Panel>Internet Options>Advanced>security>"Use TLS 1.2") >>> Vuze Options>Tracker>Client Unchecked “Send Java version and OS name”, “Enable HTTP/HTTPS tracker client protocol” is already checked >>> Vuze Options>Tracker>security> attempted reset using “Reset certificate store (will restart Vuze)”, “Automatically install unknown ssl certidficated without promting” option is already checked >>> In torrents’ tracker URL starts with HTTPS... >>> Tried using other torrents’ client developed in C++ without any problem Please help me to get ride this problem, because I do not want to use other client, vuze is my favorite client ...
Used to be a great torrent downloader - however, recent versions are loaded with bloat and adware as well as suspected malware. I no longer trust this software and have switched to a more lightweight client which does everything I need.
I used azureus back when it was still actually free, open source software. Since it became Vuze, it has morphed into ad-bloated crap with piggyback installers. An unobtrusive corner ad I can deal with, but directing people to BUY the premium version to lose the worst of the worst annoying video ads ever. Azureus was great, and as a bittorrent client it still performs well. Frankly it no longer belongs here on Sourceforge. tl;dr NOT OPENSOURCE, FREE VERSION SUCKS
This is great app.
The best in it's class!
