UPnP - uTorrent 2.0 and Wine 1.0.1


Recommended Posts

When opening uTorrent under wine, using UPnP, uTorrent automagically opens the right port for me on my router and if I go to preferences and change the port UPnP closes the old port and opens the new one. Upon exit the ports are closed.

Heres the bug.

After a few hours of either idle, downloading or seeding I come back to find that the ports have been closed and changing it in preferences does not reopen a new port. The only way to get it to reopen a new port is by closing uTorrent and reopening it.

ubuntu 9.04

wine 1.0.1 - windows xp emulation

Don't tell me to manually forward my ports as a work around, already done it. And I know its not the router since the xBox and uTorrent 2.0 on windows xp/vista/7 have no problems. Although uTorrent 1.8.5 under wine 1.0.1 is not able to open ports using UPnP at all.

I agree since it works on windows but its still happening.

This is what I've tried.

ubuntu 9.04 and wine 1.0.1-6

ubuntu 9.10 and wine 1.0.1-8

ubuntu 9.10 and wine 1.1.38 (latest dev)

I'm about to install wireshark and see whats going on.


I installed wireshark and can confirm that uTorrent is definatly sending a DeletePortMappping request. This is really quite odd, it just stits there quietly in the background and then randomly sends a DeletePortMapping request.

I'm all out of ideas, I guess its back to manual port forwarding for me.
