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 Virgin Media Super_Hub_2 router you should see the following:
Click the Advanced Settings button near the bottom of the page.
Click the Port Forwarding link 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 Port Forwarding menu and then click Add Rule.
|Start Port||End Port|
And that is it! You are done!
