Directrix

WebUI v0.315

Recommended Posts

As long as you forwarded your port properly, you just have to connect to your external IP address as such:

http://IP:port/gui/

Where IP is the IP you see when you connect to whatismyip.com on that computer you want to serve WebUI from.

Thanks Directrix. WebUI works just fine but it happens that µTorrent stops answering by unknown reason -- i can see only "Loading" all the time. µTorrent works well (no error messages or anything of the kind) but i can't communicate with it.

Source machine: MAC OS X 10.4.7, Intel Core Duo, Mozilla FireFox (the last).

Destination machine: W2k pro SP4, µTorrent and WebUI 1.6.1 b481

Ok, ive been testing and it did the job flawlessly, but i have a question, im sure youre familiar with the example posted on slyck.com about the guy on vacations http://slyck.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=26153.

My question is, suppose the hypothetical case were you are at home and want to download a torrent from a public connection of shared IPs usin the Webui (i.e. the opposite of the slycks example), would it work? Ive been trying but i couldnt connect to the Webui. Is it possible to do so?

Any Javascript errors in Firefox? Are you using any extensions?

I haven't seen any errors. No 3rd part extensions or even any custom settings in FireFox. I downloaded and installed it just yesterday.

Awesome. I am a no-ip subscriber, combine that with firefox, and your Web UI.....WOW!!! Life is grand. You guys are doing a great job, I'm impressed. I've used alot of clients and just recently installed utorrent. I have to say I think I've been missing alot. Now if I can just get the client tweaked, upload speed a little lacking, and I've just started configuring. But all around excelent job guys.;)

Nope. Thanks for hinting. I cleared Firefox cache and the problem was solved.

Thanks all.

Some users are reporting a problem where the WebUI hangs at the "Loading..." screen. I had the same problem using FireFox + NoScript. This solved the problem for me:

- Open the "webui.zip"-file in your Application Data\uTorrent folder using WinZip

- Open the file "index.html" from inside the zip

- Look for 4 lines like this one (line 9-12):

<script type="text/javascript" src="./common.js"></script>

- Remove the "./" before the file names (so src="./common.js" becomes src="common.js"); do this for all 4 lines

- Save the file and close the editor; WinZip will now ask if you want to update webui.zip with the changes you made to index.html. Choose "Yes".

- Restart uTorrent

Another solution was to tell NoScript to allow scripts globally (simply allowing localhost:port didn't work).

Good luck :)

Glival, that's pretty sweet. I have since edited the page and restarted uTorrent such that now in my browser at work viewing the source shows lines 9 through 12:

<script type="text/javascript" src="common.js"></script><script type="text/javascript" src="stable.js"></script><script type="text/javascript" src="script.js"></script><script type="text/javascript" src="content.js" defer="defer"></script>

Unfortunately, I'm still stuck at the "Loading..." in the middle of the screen in Firefox. Does "./" just mean it's pulling from the current directory? If so, why not let it be a vanilla relative URI? Either way, I've modified the index.html to remove ALL "./" from in front of anything, which includes the following three lines in addition to the ones shown above:

Lines 7 and 8 (obviously the favicon is unlikely to matter, though the style.css might well be important):

<link href="favicon.ico" rel="SHORTCUT ICON" /><link href="style.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />

Line 23:

<form action="?action=add-file" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data" target="uploadfrm" onsubmit="return CheckUpload(this);">

And now it works! Yay! I know I modified the form action to add a file, so I tested it out, and it works well even without the "./" prepended to it.

PS Yes, Firefox 1.5.0.7 with the NoScript extension among others. In case it proves useful for future reference, here's my complete extensions list:

Glad you've got it working Deacon. I also removed the "./" before all file names, but I guessed the scripts were the problem because NoScript seemed to cause it. Should have tested it first :)

Besides NoScript, IE View is the only extension we've got in common.
