Guide to using Vuze (Azureus 3.0) (BitTorrent Client)

The following guide is a useful and comprehensive guide to using the Java-based BitTorrent client Vuze. If this is your first time using torrents, don't fret as the first part of this guide will teach you the basics. For more advanced users, this guide will show how to download files using the client as well as other features.


All you need for this guide is to have Vuze (Azureus) installed. You will also need to install the Java Runtime Environment because the client is based on Java coding and will not work without the JRE

Java Runtime Environment- Download the latest Java files here.

Vuze (Azureus 3.0)- Download the latest version of Vuze here at AfterDawn.

As always I ask that you have some HDD space available, although not much is needed for this guide.
