[h]Installing default WebUI:[/h]

You can simply enable WebUI in the Preferences and µTorrent will automatically download and install the WebUI for you. Be sure to pick a username and password in the Preferences.

You might already have an older build of the webui on your machine. Currently there is no auto-update feature for the WebUI. To make sure you run the newest WebUI follow the update instructions below.

[h]Updating to latest WebUI:[/h]

The latest version of WebUI can be found in this topic. It is has many bugfixes and added features. To install this download the file, rename it to webui.zip and place it in the same folder as where settings.dat is located.

By default settings.dat is located (after µtorrent has been started at least once) in %appdata%\utorrent but it might also be in %programfiles%\utorrent or %programfiles(x86)%\utorrent or where you manually installed utorrent.exe.

[h]Accessing WebUI:[/h]

If you have a router you have to forward the port if you want to access your webui from elsewhere on the internet. Also with a router you often cannot use your Internet IP from machines in your LAN. For a detailed explanation of this look at this topic.

Connecting from a machine running µTorrent or machine in the same LAN:

  1. Find your computer's IP by visiting Start > Run > cmd /k ipconfig. Look for the IP(v4)-address line. note: If there multiple such lines it is likely the IP that looks either like 192.168.x.x or 10.x.x.x and it is often listed under the first Ethernet adapter.
  2. Find µTorrent port in the Connection preferences (or the WebUI alternative listening port, if enabled)
  3. In your web browser, visit http://your ip:your port/gui/ (for example, http://192.168.1.2:63421/gui/)

Connecting from another machine elsewhere on the Internet:

  1. Find your computer's IP by visiting WhatIsMyIP.com.
  2. Find µTorrent port in the Connection preferences (or the WebUI alternative listening port, if enabled)
  3. In your web browser, visit http://your ip:your port/gui/ (for example, http://12.34.56.78:12345/gui/)

[h]Common Problems:[/h]

  • I have a dynamic IP address -- Read this topic carefully.
  • The webui displays but my detail/category/etc pane is gone or is displaying incorrectly -- Press Esc to reset the interface.
  • I only see the text invalid request -- Usually forgot or mistyped /gui/ or used µTorrent port instead of alternate port. See this post for more information.
  • I get a Blank Screen -- Update µTorrent itself (and get the newest version of WebUI).
  • Page stuck on Loading... -- Update µTorrent itself (and get the newest version of WebUI). If it still happens it is either an unsupported browser or JavaScript related. See this topic for more information and help.
  • Weird page with a line of gibberish, a line with Loading... and then a weird form. -- This problem can have various (sometimes elusive) causes. See this topic for things to try and further help.
