DrHow Posted May 5, 2014 Report Share Posted May 5, 2014 I am using a VPN service that supports port forwarding. I have configured it to forward the port that uTorrent chose for itself. The Network test in the Setup Guide says "Port is not open". My VPN has a port forwarding test program that can listen to any port. With uTorrent not running, I told the test program to listen on the port that I set up for uTorrent. I was thinking I would have to check it from my VPN's Web site, and that works. But, to my surprise, I could also see the occasional bittorrent request coming in (since I am seeding some torrents). Both the test program and uTorrent have been enabled in Windows Firewall for UDP and TCP on public and private networks. So what could be causing uTorrent to think that the port is not open? I am probably missing something; but I have run out of ideas. Any help or pointers would be appreciated. It occurs to me that maybe I needed to configure something under Proxy Server. I doubt it, since a VPN is something else. But, if so, I have no idea what to put there. I am also curious to know if there is a way to tell, for any connection, whether that connection was initiated remotely or from my end. (That is obvious with Vuze (which I have abandoned); but I don't know how to see it with uTorrent.) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
