Firewall outgoing port


Recommended Posts

We have upgraded to a fairly strict firewall (forefront TMG) which is incompatible with the automatic facility in utorrent, which requires me to create a port exception in order to allow the application to connect.

Since I need to create (preferably) a single exception, I need to use the net.outgoing_port configuration - which I have tried to set to various values, ranging from 6881 through various others.

Unfortunately, whatever I set this to, utorrent seems to still randomize the outgoing port - in the firewall exception reporting I can see the port being tried, and this jumps all over the place from 3001 through to 52xxx and so on.

Am I doing something wrong, or is there another option I should be setting? I am stumped.

Thanks in advance.
