Control Vuze Torrent Client Remotely using Mobile or Tablet

Do you know that you can control Vuze BitTorrent Client installed on your Computer (PC, Linux and Mac) remotely from anywhere using your Mobile Phone or Tablet device?


The client allows Remote Pairing over a Wi-Fi Network or any other existing network that your computer is using, so that you can carry out basic functions like Start, Stop, Delete and Add Torrent Files using your Mobile Device:

Also, if you want to control the client remotely using your web browser, then you need to download and install Remote Toolbar.

Important Notes:

  • If you get an error “Vuze isn’t accessible outside your local network”, then either your router doesn’t support UPnP and NAT-PMP OR you need to enable and configure one of these.
  • The client requires browser cookies to work, so you need to enable “Accept browser cookies”.
  • If you are using a Firewall, then make sure it is not blocking Vuze.
  • The torrent client and its Remote Pairing feature MUST be running whenever you want to establish a remote connection.

It would be nice, if the control mechanism didn’t go outside LAN. As of now it is a ridiculous solution.
