Directrix

WebUI v0.315

Recommended Posts

Okay, I got this working fine on the same machine as I use uTorrent. But what address do I type in to access it from another machine, say at the library or something. Awesome plug-in :)

Ctrl-P -> Advanced -> WebUI

If you have limited it to 127.0.0.1 there you need to add a range, or remove it. (Note: it is not recommended to have your webui open to the public) To enable IPs add individual ones, or CIDR notation 192.168.0.0/24 (Thank adambot http://forum.utorrent.com/viewtopic.php?pid=241666#p241666 for exposing this nicety) Sorry Lord Alderaan, I misattributed that post to you. But no worries you're still smarter than I.

Edited to be correct.

Hi guys,

I guess this problem has been posted already but I couldn't find any solution for me untill now - although I've got to admit that I haven't read all 42 pages of this thread yet ;)

I've installed everything correctly and tried every hint given in the readme.txt but still I am stuck on the loading page of webui. I've tried uTorrent 1.7.4 and 1.7.5. I've tried Firefox 3 Beta 1 and IE7. I've tried my internal as well as external IP adress. I've tried the other URL with the '... ?action=setsetting&s=webui.cookie&v={}' but only got the browser feedback '{"":""}'. Nothing worked, I only see the loading page...

Please help! Thanks a lot in advance.

IE isn't supported fully afaik. and Beta1.. well don't use it.

If you tried everything in the readme.txt your problemis solved. make sure its http://localhost:PORT:/gui/ (capitalization matters) or 127.0.0.1 or your LAN IP or your external IP depending on how you setup Ctrl-P -> Advanced -> WebUI -> Restrict access

Thanks for the fast reply. You were right, it was a problem with Firefox 3 Beta 1. After installing Firefox 2.0.0.11 everything works fine. Now I only gotta get it working on my iphone ;)

(I'm beginning to think the usercount isn't growing with users, but spammers anyone else's opinion?)

and how can i define the url and webui setting in utorrent

There is a readme.txt in the package you downloaded from ... this thread.

Also there is a WebUI Guide accessible from the nifty Guides page

Any plans for update? the feature to change queue list. is it that hard to update?

I'm using windows vista 64 ultimate. task scheduled utorrent with my account. Bec. i want to start automatically as the PC turns on (from brown out or restart) since it runs in task schedule no icon or window will pop up. although it runs from my account but it runs before i log-in so there's no other way to access (even boss key) other than webUI.

Currently what i do to put the next download is to click at the last queue and upload (if not work click the first download) so that the torrent that i upload will put at the last queue.

The problem is what if the download is already started. its risky to delete and upload again the torrent just to move or put it to the next queue.

any remedy? before webUI update....

i've been using utorrent 5 yrs before 3yrs on shareaza.

currently running 3:

azureus (when network is congested, very stable)

utorrent (for faster download if not congested)

shareaza (for 3 other kind of network all in one even torrent[but not in use. too slow for torrent])

you might ask why i got azureus and utorrent?

When running in shared network azureus vs utorrent (tested same Torrent, same Tracker, same PC Specs, same OS, same no encryption, same upload slots, same global up rate and same max torrent connections, its just running to different PC and same programs installed and virus free.) the utorrent dies. azureus got 80% bandwidth and utorrent got less than 10% the other 10% is gone.

Maybe its the prise for fastest torrent client.(just a thought)

uTorrent has and has had the ability to start when computer starts through a registry key different than the scheduler uses.

Yes the webUI is still under development. No I don't know when a new version will be out. No I don't think you should ask for an ETA. Why? Because presumably with all the new features being put into the new 1.8 line I'd hope Directrix would wait until it is feature complete instead of working on it while in-flux and trying to play catch-up between builds.

Note: I said a different key than the scheduler uses. This is saying the same thing :( After checking the keys myself, indeed it is only putting it under HKCU so no, it won't run as a SYSTEM level account, and the only means to interact with the system account is the webui.

Sorry if I confused you ;)

Edit: If you are running a computer (2K Server or greater) with Terminal Services a.k.a. Multiple Users It is possible to keep multiple user sessions open at once.

NOTE THIS IS NOT SUPPORTED BY MICROSOFT SINCE XP SP2 FINAL

confused here about 1.7.5 build. I've had 1.6.3 working before but now i'm working on a new machine. The ip of the machine is 192.168.11.2 and i've used the default port of 8080. I've dumped webui.zip file to the %AppData%\uTorrent directory which happens to be (documents and settings\user\appdata\xxx). here's where the problem come in, after dumping the .zip file in as well as enabling webUI in the control panel, I still get a can not connect error message. This massage is received when trying to connect on both the remote machine (using 192.168.11.2:8080/gui/ and machine machinename) as well as the local machine (usuing 127.0.0.1:8080/gui/)

i'm wondering if

1. the webui.zip i've downloaded from the 1st page of this thread is compatible with build 1.7.5??

2. if having all the web files in %AppData%\uTorrent directory is causing a security issue when trying to connect?? if how so do i change path?

error i'm getting:

Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at 192.168.11.2:8080.

url i'm using

http://192.168.11.2:8080/gui/

Err yea, check the readme.txt

I'm writing this right now logged into my 1.6.1 1.7.5 and 1.8 webui's.

Be sure you setup the Ctrl-P -> Advanced -> WebuI pane correctly if you're limiting access to IPs, and that you setup the correct forwarding port when using non-standard port.

Also please note Firefox 3 Beta is not compatible at this time. Nor is IE 6 (but it never will be due to its definition of "standards")

I am unable to access the webUI via a domain name. I can make it work internally with my internal address. it works externally with my external ip address. but when i try to access it via the domain name set up to this computer it will not load at all.

Note: I am still able to use my ftp server on the same computer using the domain name.

I realize that, and that is why i am so confused, it should work. I was just wondering if there was something that i could do. I am ok with using the ip address, it would just be easier to use a domain name. Thanks anyways

AWWWWW... DRATS!!! I saw Directrix posted and figured it was some sort of update, not a "you should read the documents or thread/forum stickies" answer :(

We love you Directrix :D :cool:

2. You can move the config file (settings.dat (!!), resume.dat, etc.) to the folder where µTorrent's exe resides.

how do i do that?? I'm guessing the issue i'm having here is b/c i installed the latest uTorrent client (webUI 1.7.5) package to C:\Programs and use the default %AppData%\uTorrent path of (my documents\username\appdata\utorrent). that default installed placed settings.dat in a directory which can not be shared. So upon web service request, the path of the WebUI.zip is in a private folder resulting in "can not connect" error. I've gone over the readme.txt several times and can't find anything i'm gone wrong that could of otherwise caused this. I don't have a limited access list. the same result of "can not connect" also occurs when i do localhost or 127.0.0.1:8080/gui/
