Currently my company need to transfer files to clients by using torrent. May I know which TCP and UDP Port used by uTorrent? I need to know that to let the clients to inform their network team to open specific TCP Port and UDP Port to allow them to download files. Thanks.
You should see your uTorrent Listening Port listed in the upper right of the Preferences dialog box. Make a note of it, because that is the port that needs to be open for uTorrent to work effectively for you. Note that each install of uTorrent uses a different port, so your port will likely be different than the one shown above. Also, Make sure that the Randomize port each start checkbox is not checked. You do not want the port that you need to forward changing each time uTorrent starts.
If uTorrent is currently open, you will need to completely close it at this time. Make sure that the green uTorrent icon is not still hiding in your notification area (next to your clock). If it is, right-click on it and choose "Exit". Before moving forward to things like selecting torrents, seeders, and leachers, we need to verify that your port is open. We recommend downloading our free Open Port Check Tool to test if incoming connections are being allowed through your router on your uTorrent Listening Port.
There are many ways to check if your port is open and available around the Internet. So, why do we so strongly recommend our Open Port Check Tool? Our port checker is the best on the Internet because you will never get a false-positive result. There are many websites that have open port checker tools, but these aren't guaranteed to give you an accurate report of which ports are open. These websites only tell you if a TCP Connect was successful, and have no way of detecting if UDP packets can get through.
Using our Port Checker Tool, you will need to check if your specific uTorrent Listening Port is open for both TCP and UDP. Follow the steps listed on our Port Checker Help Page. If these ports are not open, you are likely behind a device that has NAT or a firewall. You will need to forward your uTorrent Listening Port to the download client that is running uTorrent.
Port forwarding allows incoming uTorrent connections to come directly to your download client, which is exactly what you need for a peer-to-peer program like uTorrent to work correctly. Without port forwarding, those connections will be blocked by your router, and you will get a low priority from other seeds. By having your port forwarded your priority will go up and your download speed will increase drastically.
It is our mission at PortForward.com to make port forwarding easy for everyone. You can follow our free, simple port forwarding guides, which will walk you through the process. Just choose your router from the list and we'll show you a custom guide, made especially for your router and uTorrent.
uTorrent is essentially a download manager in which you can manage the downloads of your .torrent files. It's important to note that when you are looking for torrents, you are looking for .torrent files. Many Torrent Engines will also give you the opportunity to download certain files directly. Do so at your own risk. Whenever you download from a Torrent Engine you run the risk of downloading viruses and other malware. On the flip side, torrent communities tend to do well in verifying good torrents as clean and complete, and I'll show you what to look for later in this guide.
I have disabled the UPnP Service. After doing that, the entries in the "Forward" list (as seen on the screenshot above) were removed. Also, the yougetsignal.com website reports that the port is closed. At the same time, the built-in uTorrent port test reported that the port was still open. I don't trust that, it appears to be a false positive. So I rebooted the router, and now the port is reported as closed in uTorrent as well.
Now the built-in uTorrent port test says that the port is closed, but the web based port tester says it's open. I don't trust the uTorrent port test. So I'm pretty sure it's open now, not only because Yougetsignal.com says so, but because I got upload speeds of up to 500 KB/s and that's a good sign that there is outgoing traffic now.
While typing this I've also added a forwarding rule for the second computer and rebooted the router, and after starting up uTorrent on that machine (to begin port forwarding), it too now appears as closed in uTorrent but open on the web based port tester. It was showing up as closed at first, but I solved that by starting uTorrent activity. My guess is that the router was still blocking the port until I got some network activity going on.
Note how there's a small icon in the bottom right corner of uTorrent shows a green check mark. Whatever that means... This icon used to indicate that the port is open. At least that was the case in uTorrent version 1.6 or so. But now, if I click that icon I get to the port testing dialog, as usual, and if I do the port test I get a yellow check mark and a statement saying that the selected port is closed. Now what do you make of this?... at the very best it's an ambiguous and inconclusive result. If that tells us anything at all...
Start uTorrent and wait a few minutes. If you have the NAT page open in the router interface you will see when the uTorrent port is successfully forwarded. You can then try running the port test in uTorrent.

Hey ,I successfully installed utorrent server on my linux machine as a service and can access the web ui. However, everytime I try to download a torrent, it starts downloading at 5/10Mbps then after 4-5 seconds it immediately stops (no error reported). Anybody know how i can solve this?Thanks in advance
I have noticed that when you reboot it wipes out all of your settings/preferences. Is this normal behavior for everyone else? Is there a way to fix it? I would like the settings to persist, if not, then the auto restart via systemctl on reboot is probably not a good idea. After any random reboot your utorrent server will be open to the public until you can log back in and secure it with a password again.
uTorrent can be run on any port with a port above 10000. You can change the input port of your uTorrent from 10000 to 65535 by using the output random port feature. It can be executed in 30 seconds or less without port forwarding (leaving a passive node). Port numbers will not change regardless of which time the file is downloaded. Although antivirus software may affect alternative torrent clients, torrent sites are unaffected. A basic TCP port (6989 for tracker traffic and 6881-6889 for torrent traffic) is required. If you want to configure UPnP on your uTorrent / routers, you should contact them.
Public networks like offices and airports use proxy servers to provide an internet connection to their users. If anybody is using public networks to download uTorrent files, he might face problems because public networks block some ports, which will result in the problem of uTorrent not responding or opening.
But since I see everywhere that for a p2p program to work, one must specify an open port, a question came to my mind... how is it possible that utorrent works without the need for opening a port on the router?(yea I know that people say that opening one just for utorrent might improve the speed, but for me it always worked without this trick)
It works by using a reverse connection, your client connects to an outside server, and this connection is then used for both incoming and outcoming traffic. If everyone using P2P would be behind a blocked port it woulnd't work, so it assumes that some clients/servers have their ports open.
This is a common solution for games and other clients that needs to send data in any direction, and there are solutions such as uPNP so that the client can ask the router to open a port and do a port-mapping when necessary as well.
So this is the second time i find myself in the support seccion of firefox, and i have to say i loved the support i got from the first one and thats why i'm back. My problem now is , i recently uninstalled utorrent because it was giving me to much work to get the downloads, so now i have Vuze which works just fine, my problem is , i had the magnet icon on pirate bay directing me to utorrent, but now that i dont have it just doesnt do anything. My question is, how do i change the default program opener to vuze ?
so , i tried the windows default program, and it says that the .torrent and .magnet are both opened by default by vuze. So i tried the second option and in the firefox , in the applications tab i find no extension that can be used by vuze, and so i send you a few print screens. If they are of any help let me know, thanks again for the support and speed of the answer
I just bought a Samsung S4 and am using its portable wifi hotspot feature for internet connectivity on my laptop when I go out the house.Works just fine when browsing the web(actually quite fast) but when I use uTorrent, it has an orange exclamation point icon near the bottom right. Downloads are slow even if I have 20-30+ seeders(around 6-10kbps max). Did a quick google search and found out(using canyouseeme.org and port forwarder port checker tool) that the port used by uTorrent is not open. 2b1af7f3a8
