Re: rookie needs help with utorrent

What sort of router do you have? The procedure for opening a port is different for different routers.

Need find out how portforward can you tell me how udp and tcp ports open

Here is the solution to help you out to do the port forwarding as you wished sir..

2wire-gateway-1921681254-300x234.png Once you have accessed your default gateway screen for your router, you will then want to click on the firewall tab at the top of the screen. After the firewall summary screen opens, you will then click on the firewall settings tabs to begin setting up an open port on your 2wire dsl router.
2wire-firewall-300x234.png Once the firewall setting screen opens you can then add an open port to your specific pc. Under step 2 you will see a list of predefined applications that have already been created for certain video games, servers and telephony (VoIP) services. Since in my example we are opening a port for Utorrent, we are going to manually configure port forwarding for one of my pc's. To be opening a port for Utorrent, click on "add new user-defined application" you can find the link just below the list on the left side of the screen.
2wire-edit-firewall-settings-300x234.png Once you click on add new user-defined application, you should have a window that resembles the one below. Within this window you should now be able to enter a name for the application that you are opening a port for. Underneath the application name, you know have the choice of either tcp or udp, and then you would enter a port number or a port range that you want to open up.
2wire-add-user-definition-300x234.png For security reasons, you should only open one port, unless the application specifies otherwise. The more ports that you have open on you router, the more doorways you open for hackers and viruses to enter your home network. Since we are opening a port for Utorrent, you are going to want to click on the tcp box and then enter the port number that Utorrent gives you, in my example I am opening up port number 51225. After you have entered you port number, click the add definition button. Once you have added the definition, you are going to then click on the back button.
2wire-utorrent-open-tcp-port-300x234.png After you have clicked the back button, you should now be at the edit firewall settings screen. All you have to do now is select your computer from the list that is listed After you have selected the computer that Utorrent will be hosted on, all you have to do is find the recently created user defined definition from the list under number 2. After you have located the Utorrent port forwarding application simply click on the add button, which should assign the Utorrent port forwarding application to your computer. After you have completed the above steps, you should be all set; now your Utorrent program should download and upload at a faster speed.

I have used Uttorent as an Example for you to have an idea how to do the work.. if you still have any problems or question just send a message i will get to you as soon as possible..

If you like the answer and it helped you please like the answer, it will be a great help.. Thanks

How can I block *all* torrents traffic with a Cisco 5540 ASA firewall. It consuming too much bandwidth

Hi there,

Well you can use the torrent software to not allowing more bandwidth, just open the torrent software (utorrent, bittorrent etc....) right click on the downloading file then goto the bandwidth allocation menu and select low bandwidth, just do this with all of the downloading things......

Good Luck!!

Problem opening port for utorrent with DGL 4300 router

You must set static IP on your computer where the utorrent is installed. Make sure no firewalls are enabled on your computer like windows firewall or any other firewall like norton, mcaffe, zone alarm and the likes. You should forward the port on separate protocol. Go to for more information on how to forward port for utorrent

Hangs with Bittorrent

That is because you need to open a port on router with the same number assigned to your torrent client.

You need to check port number on bittorrent configuration, then access router control panel typing router IP on internet explorer address bar and configure the router to open the port.

Network connection?

Log into your router. You should have a manual on accessing it. Find a selection called port forwarding. What your going to do it set port 6881 to be forwarded to your computer to get your IP address by going into /Start/Run/ type cmd.

Once the prompt is open type ipconfig /all and retrieve your IP address. once that port is forwarded to your computer you should be good to go.

I can't downoload by uTorrent with ports from 50000 to 65000....

Depending on your ISP, you may have been throttled. Try a different port or try µTorrent, it allows random port assignment on every boot.

Port Forwarding

First off, the have the wrong IP address set for the router. The address they are shopwing you would be replaced by (default for D-Link). You can always tell by going to the command prompt (start/run/cmd) then type "ipconfig". This will tell you the the default gateway (router) and the ip address of your computer. The is your subnet mask. Now try following those very confusing directions.

In the D-link, forward ports in the DMZ or RIP section of the router.

Personally, I don't know Utorrent and would not open a hole in my firewall for it. Bit Torrent is the original and most trustworthy of the 'torrent" programs.

Configure for emule

You must open ports on your router to allow incoming traffic while using eMule. eMule uses three ports*: 4662 (TCP) 4672 (UDP) 4711 (TCP) Visit eMule here. * To prevent getting a low ID (Firewalled), open additional TCP ports between 4661 and 4665. Also, limit the number of connections in the eMule software. You may need to change the TCP Clientport to something other than 4662.
