Before we can forward ports for Utorrent, we need to figure out what ports Utorrent is using. Here is a brief walkthrough on how to do that. Go ahead and open up Utorrent.
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.
Now that you are logged in to your Thomson-Alcatel SpeedTouch585 router you should see the following:
Click the Toolbox button near the left of the page.
Click the Game & Application Sharing link near the left of the page.
Click the Create a new game or application link near the bottom of the page.
Enter the name of the program into the Name box. It doesn't really matter what you put into this box, but something that will remind you why these ports are being forwarded would be a good idea.
Put a dot into the Manual Entry of Port Maps radio button.
Click the Next button near the bottom 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 Application menu and then click Add.
|Protocol||Port Range||Translate To ...||Trigger Protocol||Trigger Port|
Click the Apply button near the top of the page.
Click the Assign a game or application to a local network device link near the bottom of the page.
Use the Device box to choose a device to forward ports to. This box contains a list of device names that are visible on your network.
Select the application you created using the Game or Application drop down box. Then click Add to enable it.
And that is it! You are done!
Now that you have forwarded ports for Utorrent on the Thomson-Alcatel SpeedTouch585 you should test to see if your ports are forwarded correctly.
