    Utorrent

    Hi all,

    Im getting really really confused with utorrent. The preset for it dont seem particulary safe to me, Allow all for both UDP and TCP. So I've done a search and come up with a number of rules too try, but the outcome is the same.

    On each suggestion it says to basically block any other UDP and TCP connections.

    6. Finally we need to add the Block All coverage rules to prevent further rules prompts.

    Protocol: TCP, Direction: Inbound, Block it

    Protocol: TCP, Direction: Outbound, Block it

    Protocol: UDP, Block it
    Doing so, stops Utorrent altogether. Then I learnt that you only do all this blocking if you have set a utorrent DNS rule. So unticking them now, and Utorrent is popping up asking to allow all sorts of connections. Im baffled now!

    I've tried these so far...

    Which give the best suggestions.

    My setup at the moment is....

    1.

    Protocol: TCP
    Direction: Outbound
    Remote Port: HTTP,HTTPS
    Allow

    2.

    Protocol: TCP
    Direction: Inbound
    Remote Host: local (127.0.0.1)
    Allow it

    3.

    Protocol: TCP
    Direction: Outbound
    Remote Port: 0-65535
    Allow it

    4.

    Protocol: TCP
    Direction: Inbound
    Remote Port: 0-65535
    Local Port: xxxxx
    Allow it

    5.

    Protocol: UDP
    Remote Port: 0-65535
    Local Port: xxxxx
    Allow it

    Number 5 is turned off because I have turned off my DHT. Could anyone tell me if any of this is correct?

    Thanks

    Re: Utorrent

    Try this:

    allow utorrent tcp\udp in "your utorrent user port"

    allow utorrent tcp out 80, 1024-65535
    allow utorrent udp out 53, 80, 1024-65535

    (deny utorrent tcp out 0-79, 81-1023
    deny utorrent udp out 0-52, 54-79, 81-1023)

    Deny rules are basically deny all tcp\udp out at the end of the other rules

    Re: Utorrent

    Cheers! I believe I got it after I put in what you posted. Im getting over 100kb/sec on rates so thats a good sign its working lol.

    I changed it around tho, because people have said you would be missing a fair few people who use lower port numbers. So instead of putting 1024-65535 i changed it too 0-65535 and changed the last bit to compensate.

    Thanks again!

    Re: Utorrent

    What you want to do is, set 0-65535 for your outbound connection for TCP and UDP. You do this because you don't know the port the other people are using. And this is no problem.

    For inbound you use the port you have in your uTorrent program. There's no need to allow the entire port range. And of course you do this for TCP and UDP.

    This goes for any application.
