Torrent download doesn't launch if utserver is autostarted


Recommended Posts

Hello, all!

I try to install the last version (27079) of utorrent server 64-bit edition on fedora 17 x64. It works fine when I start the utserver manually: utserver -settingspath /opt/utorrent-server-v3_0/settings -logfile -daemon, for example (necessary ports was opened, utserver.conf file was created). To autostart utserver I wrote a simple script into /etc/init.d/utorrent-server file:


# Run-level startup scrip for the utorrent server

# chkconfig: 345 91 19

# description: startup/shutdown utorrent server


case "$1" in


echo -n "Starting utorrent server... "

cd /opt/utorrent-server-v3_0

utserver -settingspath $UT_SETTINGS_PATH -logfile -daemon



echo -n "Shutting down utorrent server... "

killall utserver



$0 stop

$0 start



echo "Usage: $0 start|stop|restart"

exit 1


exit 0

and add this script to chkconfig:

chkconfig --add /etc/init.d/utorrent-server

After reboot utserver is launched, I can open WebUI interface from any computer in local area network. But when I select a torrent file, download is never started. Later I login into the system as any user including super user, I stop the utserver using my script: /etc/init.d/utorrent-server stop (as super user). Then I launch the utserver again using next command: /etc/init.d/utorrent-server start. After that actions utserver works fine again. New selected torrents and early selected torrents will be successfully download. If I reboot the system, old added torrents continue to download, but download of new selected torrents will never started again. Please help me to find out! Thanks in Advance!
