  1. utorrent-server-3.0-25053.tar.gz AMD Phenom x6 T1100 System: OpenSUSE 12.1 x64 (uname -a Linux neptune 3.1.10-1.9-desktop #1 SMP PREEMPT Thu Apr 5 18:48:38 UTC 2012 (4a97ec8) x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux) I downloaded and unpacked, only had to add the following to make it work. zypper install libssl.so.0.9.8 Start the server ./utserver Then point my web browser to http://localhost:8080/gui/ I could not make file:///home/install/linux/utorrent-server-v3_0/webui/index.html work. BTW, the "Remote GUI head" is a really nice feature. I'd like to run uTorrent on my server, about 100ft from where I sit, and operate it from a client GUI running on my workstation desktop, both systems are OpenSUSE 12.1 x64 Linux. The server is an AMD FX-8120 (8-Core) running a lot of services. I'd like uTorrent to be another native Linux service on the server. Operating both on my workstation should also work. After logging into the web frontend as admin I faced a familiar looking uTorrent interface. Unfortunately some things I need to use this program don't appear to exist. The first thing I wanted to do is have uTorrent take over some existing ktorrent downloads already in progress. There didn't appear to be any way to point uTorrent to an existing partial download (28GB of 62GB already downloaded). I tried starting the "magnet:" download from scratch and couldn't move the file. I tried "exporting" the .torrent from ktorrent which had the same effect as just inputting a new URL, again, no control over data and resuming a transfer in progress. I really do need the ability to install and check an existing file against a magnet: link to resume a download. I'll try running the Windows uTorrent under WINE next and if that doesn't work, I'll try a MS Windows XP VM. Ktorrent is too buggy to do more than 4 torrents at once on my system. The UI becomes so slow as to be almost unusable, and last night it stopped all of the KDE UI from responding for more than a minute, so I hit the reset button. I'd really like to replace ktorrent with uTorrent. This isn't to bash ktorrent which operates better than qBittorrent on my system. I expect uTorrent will be the better tool, hopefully operating like it does under MS Windows when running natively on x64 Linux. Thanks, Craig
