Sample UTSERVER.CONFIG file

Recommended Posts

For anyone interested, here's a sample config file. It will simplify things for lots of folks. You can simply copy/paste into a txt file; name it "utserver.conf" and you're good. Oh, be sure that "word wrapping" is turned off in your txt editor, or you'll have a mess. :D

A comprehensive version

## Configuration setting for uTorrent for Linux.
## OldPike - 2011-08-17
##
## Command-Line for this config file:
## ./utserver -settingspath /your_path/utorrent-server-v3_0/settings/ -configfile /your_path/utorrent-server-v3_0/utserver.conf
##
## * Make sure all directories exist prior to starting utserver, else you will get unwanted results.
## * If you're making changes to an existing config file (utserver.conf), be sure to delete or rename the settings files. They'll be recreated upon
## startup.
##
## Application Settings
##
## Settings fall into two categories:
##
## $(B""(B internal settings, whose values can only be set in the utserver.conf
## file;
## $(B""(B regular settings, whose values can be set in the utserver.conf file or
## the /api/app-settings-set RPC API call.
##
## A setting can be of one of three types:
##
## $(B""(B string
## $(B""(B integer
## $(B""(B Boolean value (1 for true and 0 for false)
##
## Internal Settings
##

# bind_ip:
## bind_ip (string):
## IP address to use for socket connections. If not provided, a default IP
## address will be used. We do not recommend changing this value.

# ut_webui_port:
## ut_webui_port (integer):
## Default value: 8080. Port number where the utserver process accepts HTTP
## RPC API calls to support the µTorrent-compatible HTTP interface. If the
## utserver process also serves HTML files (see webui_server_files setting),
## also the port of HTTP server.

# token_auth_enable:
## token_auth_enable (boolean)
## Default value: true. If true, the µTorrent HTTP interface defends against
## cross-site request forgeries by requiring that a short-lived token be
## obtained from the µTorrent HTTP interface and included at the beginning of
## the parameter list of any request made to that interface. If false, the
## µTorrent HTTP interface will not be protected in this manner.

# dir_active:
## dir_active (string):
## Default value: "./". Directory in which currently downloaded data is saved.
## Can be an absolute path or a relative path. If it is a relative path, the
## value is relative to dir_root or the current working directory if dir_root
## is not defined or an empty string. It is recommended that this directory be
## hidden from users (i.e. not exported through Samba).

# dir_completed:
## dir_completed (string):
## Default value: "". Directory where completed downloads are stored. If the
## value is an empty string, the value of dir_active is used. This value must
## represent a path that is accessible to users (e.g. exported through Samba).
## It also has to be on the same volume as dir_active.

# dir_download:
## dir_download (string):
##
## Default value: "". Optional directory where completed downloads can be
## stored, instead of in dir_completed. If no value is specified for this
## setting, the value of dir_completed is used. The value must represent a
## path that is accessible to users (e.g. exported through Samba).
##
## This option can be specified multiple times in the file - once for each
## directory to be designated as such. This option can be used when adding
## torrents via the µTorrent HTTP interface, not via the SDK interface.
##
## Use the action list-dirs to obtain a list of download directories from the
## µTorrent HTTP interface. Use the option download_dir to specify which of
## these directories to use when adding a torrent by URL or file through the
## µTorrent HTTP interface; specify the one-based index of the entry of
## interest. The index of each entry will be in order in which each entry
## appears in utserver.conf, starting with 1 for the first entry, 2 for the
## second entry, and so on. 0 indicates the default download directory should
## be used.
##

# dir_torrent_files:
## dir_torrent_files (string):
## Default value: "". Directory where torrent files are stored. If the empty
## string, the value of dir_active is used. It is recommended that this
## directory be hidden from users (i.e. not exported through Samba).

# dir_temp_files:
## dir_temp_files (string):
## Default value: "". Directory where temporary files are stored. If the empty
## string, the value of dir_active is used. It is recommended that this
## directory be hidden from users (i.e. not exported through Samba). Also,
## using a separate directory just for temporary files allows for deleting the
## files in this directory on boot and/or periodically. The utserver process
## creates temporary files with a .utt extension - if a value for this setting
## is specified, the utserver process will delete all files with that
## extension in that directory at process startup. This setting applies only
## to POSIX systems. The value should specify a directory, not a symbolic link
## to a directory.

# dir_autoload:
## dir_autoload (string):
## Default value: "". Directory where torrent files will be recognized and
## auto-loaded. If the empty string, auto-load is disabled.

# dir_autoload_delete:
## dir_autoload_delete (boolean):
## Default value: false. If true, torrent files in the autoload directory will
## be deleted after being loaded, else they will be renamed with an extension
## of .loaded. The dir_autoload setting must be specified for this setting to
## have an effect.

# dir_request:
## dir_request (string):
##
## Default value: "". Directory where maintenance request files will be
## recognized, loaded, and deleted. If the empty string, maintenance request
## handling is disabled. This directory should be hidden from users (i.e., not
## exported through Samba). Your software running on your device can create
## the following files in this directory in order to request the following
## maintenance procedures.
##
## If the file c.utmr is created in or moved into this directory, the
## credentials necessary to access the µTorrent HTTP interface will be reset
## to username admin and a blank password.
##
## If the file wipl.utmr is created in or moved into this directory, the IP
## restriction list that limits the IPs that can use the µTorrent HTTP
## interface is cleared, so that there will be no restrictions on IP address.
##
## These maintenance operations provide a way to help a user who has either
## entered new credentials and then forgotten them, or who has entered an IP
## range in the restricted list and can no longer access the µTorrent HTTP

## interface as a result.
##
## If the file rcf.utmr is created in or moved into this directory, the server
## will reload the configuration file. If you always use this method to
## request a configuration file reload, you can safely change the value of
## this setting while the server is running.
##
## The server will also reload the configuration file if you send a hangup
## signal to the server; however, a race condition may occur if you send a
## hangup signal to the server in order to change the value of this setting.
## You should either only use the file system interface for requesting
## configuration file reloads, or you should not change the value of this
## setting in the configuration file before sending a hangup signal to the
## server.
##

# upnp:
## upnp (boolean):
## Default value: true. If true, UPNP functionality for mapping ports is used
## by utserver. We recommend setting this value to true.

# natpmp:
## natpmp (boolean):
## If true, NAT-PMP functionality for mapping ports is used by utserver.
## Default value: true. We recommend setting this value to true.

## dht (boolean):
## Default value: true. If true, Distributed Hash Table extension is enabled.
## We recommend setting this value to true.

# pex:
## pex (boolean):
## Default value: true. If true, Peer Exchange extension is enabled. We
## recommend setting this value to true.

# rate_limit_local_peers:
## rate_limit_local_peers (boolean):
## Default value: false. If true, rate limiting also applies to communications
## with peers in the local subnet. We recommend setting this value to false.

# dir_root:
## dir_root (string):
## Default value: "". If not empty, dir_active, dir_completed, and
## dir_torrent_files are relative to this directory.

# disk_cache_max_size:
## disk_cache_max_size (integer):
##
## Default value: 0. Maximum amount of memory used by each of the read, write,
## and piece caches. Value is in megabytes. If 0, accepts the SDK's default
## choices on selecting sizes of disk caches. Maximum value is 512.
##
## The value of this setting will be applied every time the utserver process
## starts.
##

# preferred_interface:
## preferred_interface (string):
##
## Default value: "". If defined, name of network interface to be preferred
## when attempting to search among network interfaces for an external IP and
## hardware address. If empty string, preferred interface is ignored.
##
## You need to provide a value for this setting if either 1) the toolchain for
## your computer does not supply ifaddrs.h, or 2) you want the utserver
## process to choose a different interface than it would choose on its own.
## You should set a value for this setting if you see an incorrect port
## mapping on a UPnP router for the subnet to which the device belongs (the IP
## address of the device will not appear in the port mapping requested by the
## utserver process - instead, the IP address associated with the mapping will
## be 0.0.0.0 with a device having a toolchain that does not include
## ifaddrs.h, or some other IP address with a device having a toolchain that
## includes ipaddrs.h).
##
## The value of this setting will be applied every time the utserver process
## starts.
##

# admin_name:
## admin_name (string):
## Default value: "admin". If defined, name that must be supplied (along with
## the password) when authenticating to the server via the HTTP interface.
## This allows the administrator to define an initial non-default value for
## this name. This value will not be applied from utserver.conf if
## settings.dat already exists.

# admin_password:
## admin_password (string):
## Default value: "". If defined, password that must be supplied (along with
## the name) when authenticating to the server via the HTTP interface. This
## allows the administrator to define an initial non-default value for this
## password. This value will not be applied from utserver.conf if settings.dat
## already exists.

# logmask:
## logmask (integer):
##
## Default value: 0. A mask whose bits when set allow certain categories of
## log messages to be generated. The value of this setting will be applied
## every time the utserver process starts.
##
## The bits (0 - 31) in the value of this setting correspond to a set of
## internal events and subsystems. The usage of these bits may change without
## advance notice in a future release.

# ut_webui_dir:
## ut_webui_dir (string):
## Directory where the web UI file archive webui.zip is stored, or which
## contains a webui subdirectory within which the unarchived web UI files are
## stored. It can be an absolute path or set relative to the current
## directory. It is recommended that this directory be hidden from users (i.e.
## not exported through Samba). Default value: "" (to use the same directory
## as settings.dat and other settings files).

# finish_cmd:
# state_cmd:
## finish_cmd (string), state_cmd (string):
##
## If defined, finish_cmd is a command that will be executed upon completion
## of each torrent, and state_cmd is a command that will be executed when a
## torrent changes state. Default value: "" (no command is run for the event
## (s) associated with that setting).
##
## The command is run asynchronously, so that a lengthy or hung process will
## not block the server. The server creates a new process group for the
## command, so that the server does not need to wait for it, and so the kernel
## process table does not fill up with zombie processes. The command is run as
## the same user that runs the server process.
##
## The server permits substitutions in the command text as follows:
##
## %F
## Name of downloaded data file (for single-file torrents)
## %D
## directory where torrent data files are saved
## %N
## torrent title
## %S
## torrent state
## %P
## previous state of torrent
## %L
## label associated with torrent
## %T
## tracker
## %M

Hi!

I'm a noob to this, but I'm just wondering:

All the commands in the .conf file, should they be "uncommented" when altered to an undefault value?

A friend of mine installed the utserver alpha 3.3 for me, but i can not find any utserver.conf file. Is it true that I need to create one, to alter the default values?

That version of webui looked completely different from the other version I already had. It also included the directory settings I was missing! Thank you, but enough off-topic in this thread now.

In case anyone's interested, I put together an up-to-date version of the template config file (for alpha-v3.3).

Here it is:

#### utserver.conf## Configuration settings template for μTorrent for Linux.## Taken from μTorrent Server manual for version alpha-3.3.## ©2013 BitTorrent, Inc.## Compiled by Rich.T.###### Command-line Arguments#### µTorrent Server supports the following arguments - the keywords are## case-insensitive and should be immediately preceded with a dash (-):## □ configfile - path to and name of the configuration file - if this##   argument is not specified, the utserver program looks for a file named##   utserver.conf in the current working directory - see the following##   section for more details## □ logfile - path to and name of the log file - specifying -logfile##   filename will direct log output to filename, while specifying -logfile##   without a filename will direct log file output to utserver.log in the##   current working directory## □ settingspath - path to directory to store files of relatively small##   size (operational settings, torrent resume information, RSS feed##   information) - if not specified, the utserver program will store these##   files in the current working directory## □ pidfile - path to and name of the file to create that will contain the##   process ID of the utserver process## □ daemon - directs the server to run in its own process group## □ usage - directs the server to generate message describing supported##   arguments and then exit## Configuration File## At startup the utserver process looks for a configuration file which allows the## behavior of the product to be customized by changing the values of certain## settings. The format of this file is as follows:## □ each setting is on a separate line;## □ each line consists of colon-separated name of the setting and its##   value;## □ any line whose first non-whitespace character is # is a comment.## For example, a file that sets two values and includes one comment might look## like:# This is a comment## dir_temp_files: temp## preferred_interface: eth0## For a complete list of application settings, see Application Settings.## Environment## When the utserver process creates files intended for end users, such as torrent## data files, it uses the value of the file mode creation mask to specify access## to these files. For more information, run man umask on a Linux command line.## The value of the file mode creation mask is not considered when creating files## not intended for use by users, such as settings files.## Ensure the locale used by the utserver process supports your preferred## character set or that of your users. By default, without explicit## configuration, utserver running on some Linux devices will support only the## 8-bit C/POSIX locales. Choose a locale that supports UTF-8 or other character## set that is more likely to support the torrents created by the international## community of BitTorrent users. Set the LANG environment variable to your choice## of locale, and ensure your desired locale is supported on the computer running## utserver.## Application Settings## Settings fall into two categories:## □ internal settings, whose values can only be set in the utserver.conf##   file;## □ regular settings, whose values can be set in the utserver.conf file or##   the /api/app-settings-set RPC API call.## A setting can be of one of three types:## □ string## □ integer## □ Boolean value (1 for true and 0 for false)#### Internal Settings### bind_ip:## bind_ip (string):## IP address to use for socket connections.

Directory where completed downloads are stored. If the## value is an empty string, the value of dir_active is used. This value must## represent a path that is accessible to users (e.g. exported through Samba).## It also has to be on the same volume as dir_active.# dir_download:## dir_download (string):## Default value: "". Optional directory where completed downloads can be## stored, instead of in dir_completed. If no value is specified for this## setting, the value of dir_completed is used. The value must represent a## path that is accessible to users (e.g. exported through Samba).## This option can be specified multiple times in the file - once for each## directory to be designated as such. This option can be used when adding## torrents via the µTorrent HTTP interface, not via the SDK interface.## Use the action list-dirs to obtain a list of download directories from the## µTorrent HTTP interface. Use the option download_dir to specify which of## these directories to use when adding a torrent by URL or file through the## µTorrent HTTP interface; specify the one-based index of the entry of## interest. The index of each entry will be in order in which each entry## appears in utserver.conf, starting with 1 for the first entry, 2 for the## second entry, and so on. 0 indicates the default download directory should## be used.## The value of this setting will be applied every time the utserver process## starts or the configuration file is reloaded.# dir_torrent_files:## dir_torrent_files (string):## Default value: "". Directory where torrent files are stored. If the empty## string, the value of dir_active is used. It is recommended that this## directory be hidden from users (i.e. not exported through Samba).# dir_temp_files:## dir_temp_files (string):## Default value: "". Directory where temporary files are stored. If the empty## string, the value of dir_active is used. It is recommended that this## directory be hidden from users (i.e. not exported through Samba). Also,## using a separate directory just for temporary files allows for deleting the## files in this directory on boot and/or periodically. The utserver process## creates temporary files with a .utt extension - if a value for this setting## is specified, the utserver process will delete all files with that## extension in that directory at process startup. This setting applies only## to POSIX systems. The value should specify a directory, not a symbolic link## to a directory.# dir_autoload:## dir_autoload (string):## Default value: "". Directory where torrent files will be recognized and## auto-loaded. If the empty string, auto-load is disabled.# dir_autoload_delete:## dir_autoload_delete (boolean):## Default value: false. If true, torrent files in the autoload directory will## be deleted after being loaded, else they will be renamed with an extension## of .loaded. The dir_autoload setting must be specified for this setting to## have an effect.# dir_request:## dir_request (string):## Default value: "". Directory where maintenance request files will be## recognized, loaded, and deleted. If the empty string, maintenance request## handling is disabled.## Software running on the server can create the following files in this## directory in order to request the following maintenance procedures.## If the file c.utmr is created in or moved into this directory, the## credentials necessary to access the µTorrent HTTP interface will be reset## to username admin and a blank password.## If the file wipl.utmr is created in or moved into this directory, the IP## restriction list that limits the IPs that can use the µTorrent HTTP## interface is cleared, so that there will be no restrictions on IP address.## These maintenance operations provide a way to help a user who has either## entered new credentials and then forgotten them, or who has entered an IP## range in the restricted list and can no longer access the µTorrent HTTP## interface as a result.## If the file rcf.utmr is created in or moved into this directory, the server## will reload the configuration file. If you always use this method to## request a configuration file reload, you can safely change the value of## this setting while the server is running.## The server will also reload the configuration file if you send a hangup## signal to the server; however, a race condition may occur if you send a## hangup signal to the server in order to change the value of this setting.## You should either only use the file system interface for requesting## configuration file reloads, or you should not change the value of this## setting in the configuration file before sending a hangup signal to the## server.## If the file sp.utmr is created in or moved into this directory, the## utserver process will exit after performing normal shutdown processing such## as saving settings files and torrent resume data. This can be useful for## changing configuration file settings that are best applied on process## startup.## Ensure the access permissions for this directory permit only appropriate## authenticated users and/or processes to create, list, and delete files.## This directory should be unavailable to other users and processes (i.e.,## not exported through Samba). If you want a requesting process to create## maintenance request files in this directory, ensure that both the## requesting process and the utserver process have rights to this directory.## The value of this setting will be applied every time the utserver process## starts or the configuration file is reloaded.# upnp:## upnp (boolean):## Default value: true. If true, UPNP functionality for mapping ports is used## by utserver. We recommend setting this value to true.# natpmp:## natpmp (boolean):## If true, NAT-PMP functionality for mapping ports is used by utserver.## Default value: true. We recommend setting this value to true.# lsd:## lsd (boolean):## Default value: true. If true, Local Service Discovery is enabled. We## recommend setting this value to true.# dht:## dht (boolean):## Default value: true. If true, Distributed Hash Table extension is enabled.## We recommend setting this value to true.# pex:## pex (boolean):## Default value: true. If true, Peer Exchange extension is enabled. We## recommend setting this value to true.# rate_limit_local_peers:## rate_limit_local_peers (boolean):## Default value: false. If true, rate limiting also applies to communications## with peers in the local subnet. We recommend setting this value to false.# dir_root:## dir_root (string):## Default value: "". If not empty, dir_active, dir_completed, and## dir_torrent_files are relative to this directory.# disk_cache_max_size:## disk_cache_max_size (integer):## Default value: 0. Maximum amount of memory used by each of the read, write,## and piece caches. Value is in megabytes. If 0, accepts the server's default## choices on selecting sizes of disk caches. Maximum value is 512.## The value of this setting will be applied every time the utserver process## starts or the configuration file is reloaded.# write_coalesce_max_size:## write_coalesce_max_size (integer):## Default value: 0. The maximum amount of contiguous torrent file data that## will be held before writing it to disk. Adjusting this value may affect## disk write efficiency on some systems. Value is in megabytes. Maximum value## is 32. If 0, accepts the server's default (2) on selecting sizes of writes## to coalesce. If -1, disables write caching.## The value of this setting will be applied every time the utserver process## starts or the configuration file is reloaded.# progressive_piece_span:## progressive_piece_span (integer):## Default value: 0. The maximum amount of readahead for torrents that are## being downloaded in the more sequential progressive mode (as opposed to the## more random rarest-first mode). Value is in megabytes. Maximum value is## 1024. If 0, accepts the server's default (80) on maximum readahead on## progressive downloads. If -1, disables progressive piece picker.## The value of this setting will be applied every time the utserver process## starts or the configuration file is reloaded.# preferred_interface:## preferred_interface (string):## Default value: "". If defined, name of network interface to be preferred## when attempting to search among network interfaces for an external IP and## hardware address. If empty string, preferred interface is ignored.## You need to provide a value for this setting if either 1) the toolchain for## your computer does not supply ifaddrs.h, or 2) you want the utserver## process to choose a different interface than it would choose on its own.## You should set a value for this setting if you see an incorrect port## mapping on a UPnP router for the subnet to which the device belongs (the IP## address of the device will not appear in the port mapping requested by the## utserver process - instead, the IP address associated with the mapping will## be 0.0.0.0 with a device having a toolchain that does not include## ifaddrs.h, or some other IP address with a device having a toolchain that## includes ipaddrs.h).## The value of this setting will be applied every time the utserver process## starts or the configuration file is reloaded.# admin_name:## admin_name (string):## Default value: "admin". If defined, name that must be supplied (along with## the password) when authenticating to the server via the HTTP interface.## This allows the administrator to define an initial non-default value for## this name. This value will not be applied from utserver.conf if## settings.dat already exists.# admin_password:## admin_password (string):## Default value: "". If defined, password that must be supplied (along with## the name) when authenticating to the server via the HTTP interface. This## allows the administrator to define an initial non-default value for this## password. This value will not be applied from utserver.conf if settings.dat## already exists.# localhost_authentication:## localhost_authentication (boolean):## Default value: true. If false, HTTP requests originating from the local## host will not be required to include administrative user name and password.## Disabling authentication of requests originating on the local host may be## useful on computers where there are no other users or processes that## shouldn't be prevented from accessing the HTTP interface. Disabling## authentication presents a security risk on those computers that support## untrusted users or allow third-party applications to be installed and run## outside the control of the administrator.## The value of this setting will be applied every time the utserver process## starts or the configuration file is reloaded.# logmask:## logmask (integer):## Default value: 0. A mask whose bits when set allow certain categories of## log messages to be generated. The value of this setting will be applied## every time the utserver process starts or the configuration file is## reloaded.## The bits (0 - 31) in the value of this setting correspond to a set of## internal events and subsystems. The usage of these bits may change without## advance notice in a future release.## □ 3 - send have## □ 6 - hole punch## □ 7 - got bad piece request## □ 8 - trace## □ 9 - piece picker## □ 10 - got bad cancel## □ 11 - got bad unchoke## □ 12 - got bad piece## □ 13 - rss## □ 14 - rss error## □ 15 - got have## □ 16 - got bad have## □ 17 - error## □ 18 - aggregated## □ 19 - disconnect## □ 20 - out connect## □ 21 - in connect## □ 22 - UPnP## □ 23 - UPnP error## □ 24 - NATPMP## □ 25 - NATPMP error## □ 26 - metadata finish## □ 27 - web UI## □ 28 - got bad reject## □ 29 - pex## □ 30 - peer messages## □ 31 - blocked connect# ut_webui_dir:## ut_webui_dir (string):## Directory where the web UI file archive webui.zip is stored, or which## contains a webui subdirectory within which the unarchived web UI files are## stored. It can be an absolute path or set relative to the current## directory. It is recommended that this directory be hidden from users (i.e.## not exported through Samba). Default value: "" (to use the same directory## as settings.dat and other settings files).## The value of this setting will be applied every time the utserver process## starts or the configuration file is reloaded.# finish_cmd:## finish_cmd (string), state_cmd (string):## If defined, finish_cmd is a command that will be executed upon completion## of each torrent, and state_cmd is a command that will be executed when a## torrent changes state. Default value: "" (no command is run for the event## (s) associated with that setting).## The command is run asynchronously, so that a lengthy or hung process will## not block the server. The server creates a new process group for the## command, so that the server does not need to wait for it, and so the kernel## process table does not fill up with zombie processes. The command is run as## the same user that runs the server process.## The server permits substitutions in the command text as follows:## %F## Name of downloaded data file (for single-file torrents)## %D## directory where torrent data files are saved## %N## torrent title## %S## torrent state## %P## previous state of torrent## %L## label associated with torrent## %T## tracker## %M## status message## %I## hex-encoded info-hash## State (%S) and previous state (%P) are integers that have the following## values:## □ 1 (error)## □ 2 (checked)## □ 3 (paused)## □ 4 (super seeding)## □ 5 (seeding)## □ 6 (downloading)## □ 7 (super seeding (forced))## □ 8 (seeding (forced))## □ 9 (downloading (forced))## □ 10 (queued seed)## □ 11 (finished)## □ 12 (queued)## □ 13 (stopped)# uconnect_enable:## uconnect_enable (boolean):## Default value: false. If true, the values of uconnect_username and## uconnect_password are provided when authenticating to µTorrent Remote. The## value of this setting will be applied every time the utserver process## starts or the configuration file is reloaded. This value is always applied## from utserver.conf; it is not saved in settings.dat.# uconnect_username:## uconnect_username (string):## Default value: "". If defined, name that must be supplied (along with the## password) when authenticating to µTorrent Remote. The value of this setting## will be applied every time the utserver process starts or the configuration## file is reloaded. This value is always applied from utserver.conf; it is## not saved in settings.dat.# uconnect_password:## uconnect_password (string):## Default value: "". If defined, password that must be supplied (along with## the name) when authenticating to µTorrent Remote. The value of this setting## will be applied every time the utserver process starts or the configuration## file is reloaded. This value is always applied from utserver.conf; it is## not saved in settings.dat.# low_cpu:## low_cpu (boolean):## Default value: false. If true, a short sleep occurs during the process of## handling network traffic, so that network traffic handling presents less of## a load on the CPU. This value will not be applied from utserver.conf if## settings.dat already exists.# sequential_download:## sequential_download (boolean):## Default value: false. If true, torrent pieces are requested in order. This## is used to help prevent disk congestion on slow disks such as USB drives.## This value is always applied from utserver.conf.# compact_allocation:## compact_allocation (boolean):## Default value: false. If true, torrent pieces are appended to the end of## the files as they come in and rearranged dynamically. The downside of## compact allocation is currently it does not work with mutlifile torrents## where we are selectively downloading only some of the files. This value is## always applied from utserver.conf.# prealloc_space:## prealloc_space (boolean):## Default value: false. If true, disk space for a torrent is allocated before## the first piece is written to disk. Note that this is not compatible with## and overrides compact_allocation. This value is always applied from## utserver.conf.# minimize_kernel_caching:## minimize_kernel_caching (boolean):## Default value: false. If true all disk handles opened on a win32/vfat## filesystem will be flagged for synchronous I/O when they are opened and## torrents downloaded to these filesystems will have compact allocation## enabled. This will minimize a hang that can occur when the kernel disk## cache becomes full when writing to USB devices formatted as win32/vfat.## This value is always applied from utserver.conf.# all_writes_sync:## all_writes_sync (boolean):## Default value: false. If true, all writable disk handles opened are flagged## for synchronous I/O disk space for a torrent is allocated before the first## piece is written to disk. This value is always applied from utserver.conf.# randomize_bind_port:## randomize_bind_port (boolean):## Default value: false. If true, a random port will be chosen as the peer## port at startup, even if the user has chosen a different peer port during## the previous run of the product. If false, the value of the bind_port## setting will apply. This value is applied from utserver.conf only at## program start.# token_auth_filter:## token_auth_filter (string):## Default value: all. Determines which set of IP addresses will require the## use of token authentication. Value considered only when the## token_auth_enable setting has a value of true. The value remote will## require token authentication from remote IP addresses. The value all will## require token authentication from all IP addresses. This value is applied## from utserver.conf only at program start.# encrypt_buffer_size:## encrypt_buffer_size (integer):## Default value: 102400. Minimum value: 4096. For builds including OpenSSL,## determines the size of the encryption buffer allocated for SSL## communications. This value is applied from utserver.conf only at program## start.#### Regular Settings### bind_port:## bind_port (integer):## Default value: 6881. Port used for BitTorrent protocol. This can be any## value in the range 1025-65000.# max_ul_rate:## max_ul_rate (integer):## Default value: -1. Maximum total upload rate in kilobytes per second. -1## means unlimited. We recommend setting it to -1.# max_ul_rate_seed:## max_ul_rate_seed (integer):## Default value: -1. Maximum per-torrent upload rate when seeding, in## kilobytes per second. -1 means unlimited. We recommend setting it to -1.# conns_per_torrent:## conns_per_torrent (integer):## Default value: 50. Maximum number of connections for a given torrent.# max_total_connections:## max_total_connections (integer):## Default value: 200. Maximum number of connection opened at the same time.# auto_bandwidth_management:## auto_bandwidth_management (boolean):## Default value: true. If true, upload bandwidth is automatically throttled## in order to not impact other applications using TCP/IP.# max_dl_rate:## max_dl_rate (integer):## Default value: -1. Maximum total download rate in kilobytes per second. -1## means unlimited. We recommend setting it to -1.# seed_ratio:## seed_ratio (integer):## Default value: 0. Seed ratio in percent (%) (e.g. 100 means 100%). If not## 0, seeding will stop after reaching this upload/download ratio.# seed_time:## seed_time (integer):## Default value: 0. Time after which seeding will stop, in seconds. 0 means## seeding won't stop.#### Reloadable Settings#### Many of these settings are only read from the configuration file when the## µTorrent settings file settings.dat does not already exist in the settings## directory. Once settings.dat exists, the values specified in the configuration## file for these settings will be ignored, and the values stored in settings.dat## will be used. For other settings, the server will load the values from the## configuration file every time the program starts or receives a request to## reload the configuration file.## The settings for which the values are always applied from the configuration## file when the file is read by the server include:## • dir_download## • dir_request## • disk_cache_max_size## • localhost_authentication## • logmask## • preferred_interface## • progressive_piece_span## • uconnect_enable## • uconnect_password## • uconnect_username## • ut_webui_dir## • write_coalesce_max_size

I hope this will be of some use to someone here. :)
