turner3d Posted March 31, 2012 Report Share Posted March 31, 2012 I apologize if this has been answered somewhere else, but I've been searching for weeks with no clear answer.My goal: to direct all uTorrent traffic through an SSH tunnel to a root-access remote Linux box. (I got dinged by Comcast recently for having a torrent downloaded from a private, members-only, invite-only tracker)I have this mostly working with the exception of uploading. It seems to work, but I'm lucky if I can upload 50 megs a day. I'm not even certain that I'm really uploading anything at all since the upload speed column often shows 0.1kbps even though no peers are connected. When peers do connect, they most often just transfer nothing and go away.The setup:uTorrent: version 3.1.2BitTorrent Protocol Encryption: Enabled (Have tried disabling with no results) Allow incoming legacy connections Connection Port used for incoming connections: 1720 Type: Socks4 Proxy: localhost Port: 23456 All Proxy checkboxes ticked except for AuthenticationAdvanced > bt.allow_same_ip=trueTunnel: plink.exe version 0.62.0.0Set up as a service with the following parameters:-ssh -2 -R 1720:localhost:1720 -A -D 23456 -l [username] -pw [password] [server ip] -Nnote: appropriate registry keys transfered from HKCU/Software/SimonTatham/PuTTY/SshHostKeys to HKEY_USERS/.DEFAULTRouter: Linksys E3000port forwarding all traffic on ports 22, 1720, and 23456, although I'm pretty sure that 22 should be the only one neededRemote server: CentOS 5.7, OpenSSH_5.8p2/etc/ssh/sshd_config: AllowTcpForwarding yes GatewayPorts yes PermitTunnel yesNotes:1. Connectivity to port 1720 on the remote server has been confirmed from multiple external locations via "telnet [server ip] 1720". When the tunnel service is stopped, the telnet command fails.2. Checkmytorrentip.com reports the remote server IP correctly3. Downloads work flawlessly4. The icon in the lower-right corner of uTorrent shows "not connectable", yet when I click it and run the test, it reports, "Port is open. Your network is properly configured."Any suggestions would be very much appreciated. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
