Click Options in the menu at the top of your screen. In the list that drops down click Preferences.
Click Connections on the left hand side of the Utorrent program. You should now see the menu shown in the screenshot above. Make sure the Enable UPnP box is unchecked. The number in the Port Used for Incoming Connections box contains the port you need to forward. You can change the port number, if you want to. Please enter the port you chose into the box below.

Click the Advanced button near the top of the page.
You should now see a new menu. In this new menu, click Port Forwarding.
Click the Create IPv4 button near the center of the page.
We will list a series of lines here that will show you exactly how to forward the ports you need to forward. Utorrent requires you to forward the ports you entered above. Go ahead and enter the settings shown above into the IPv4 Entry menu and then click Apply.
