Vuze is the best BitTorrent available today, period.
Proxy and VPN must be supported. You would be a FOOL to use anything that does not support these BASIC functions.

Why do you persist with this app. All the complaints about Transmission are solved if you use Vuze. Proxy and VPN support are STANDARD and then some. These Transmission guys could not care less about your privacy.

@ Mikael B "have VPN solved nicely."
And if your VPN provider goes down while you are asleep Transmission will EXPOSE your IP address. Well done Transmission.

@ Mikael B "Why do you care what client we choose to use anyway?"
I don't really care at all. I use Vuze because it supports the features that I like. I just want to add some balance to this argument that Transmission is everything, its not. It is a nice piece of software for what it does but don't try and pretend that it is all you need. Proxy and VPN support is basic and extremely important.

@ Mikael B "I feel it gives the best tradeoffs"
Ok if you are happy thats fine.
I just want to let other people know that there are other BitTorrent Client apps out there that respect your privacy.

@ Fhall1 "Vuze would be OK if it didn't try to install a bunch of crapware with it"
This "crapware" you talk of is an OPTION, you CHOOSE how to set up Vuze. Considering what they offer you for FREE and the SECURITY, its worth the effort. No BUGS and it is not too difficult to set up.
It will BIND to your VPN connection and not leave you EXPOSED. Use the "Classic User Interface" and you will not experience the "crapware"

I use both SABnzbd+ and NZBVortex. NZBVortex is a joy to use and VERY reliable. I love the VISUAL feedback.
My only criticism would be that when accessing the servers it automatically checks to see if it is valid before I have finished entering the information. I prefer the SABnzbd+ approach which allows you to test the server in your own time.
