Step by Step guide on How to setup web uTorrent Interface

This is a simple step by step tutorial on how to set up uTorrent web interface for your bittorrent uTorrent client. For those who would like to use uTorrent remotely.

Step 1: First you will need to download the latest version of uTorrent if you do not already have it installed on your computer system. This can be found here

step 2: once your uTorrent client is installed, download the Web Interface package. This can be found here

Within the zipped .rar file locate

The needs to placed in the same folder as ĀµTorrent's SETTINGS.DAT file and DO NOT unzip it. Your settings.dat file can be found here C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application Data\uTorrent , in order to navigate to this location click start run within the run dialog text box type %AppData%\uTorrent

Step 3: fire up uTorrent and enable the Web interface by clicking on options->Preferences->Advanced->WebUI.

Step 4: Enter your Authentication details this will enable you to login to your uTorrent client via your web browser. Under connectivity check alternative port and finally click ok to save settings.

Step 5:
To test uTorrent Web interface fire up your internet browser

Type the following URL http://localhost:8080/gui/

Enter username and password you specified in step 4.

If your using firefox you can use the following url format this allows you to insert your password and username directly into the URL address text box http://Username:Password@localhost:8080/gui/

localhost as mentioned above refers to your local IP address of your computer, in order to use it remotely you will need to acquire the IP address your ISP assigns to you. you can find out about your IP address by navigating to the following url once you have this you can replace localhost with your ISP assigned IP address.

If you IP address is dynamic meaning it changes regularly this can be inconvenience. In order to get your on free domain name that will map directly to your computer hosting your uTorrent client no-ip provides free domain names and a clients for you to download free of charge. The client when configured will check your IP address at a given time interval checking to see if your IP has changed. If your IP address has changed it will notify their dns servers and update the IP corresponding to your No-IP hostname.

Take note WebUI does not support Internet explorer 6.

Hi. I have a problem with this web user interface. When i try to connect to web UI with localhost:port/gui/ then everything works smoothly. But if i try to connect to my IP address, then my browser says that the page is not found. I have 3 computers on one router, and might be the problem. I tried port forwarding, but the problem remained.

within the web UI settings menu
you will see alternative listening port default is bittoren port. Uncheck the checkbox, so as to use your default utorrent port
this can be found in options => preferences=> connection beside label-> "port used for incoming connections". This should solve your problem of not been able to access your web ui using your external IP address. Let me know if it doesn't solve your problem

No, I had it already unchecked.

can you check if your utorrent port is accessible via this link This is to double check if your router is correctly forwarding to your local computer

My port isn't accessible. So the problem must be in port forwarding or a firewall. I forwarded ports with help from page I opened ports for both, TCP and UDP. But there is also Virtual DMZ. Do you think it would help. I'm asking because i'm not behind that computer at the moment.
By the way i have uTorrent in Windows firewall exceptions and I don't think NOD32 has a firewall, does it?

haven't used windows firewall probably one of the first things i always disable when re-installing. Try disabling your windows firewall temporary to see it makes any difference. in Your utorrent Go to Options > Preferences > Connections, uncheck "Randomize port" if this is checked.

if your router has port range try setting a range between 2 ports for example 6881-6889, If am not mistake windows firewall doesn't have a range feature so you might want to again turn it off to try this out. Then within utorrent client set connection port to 6881

OMG, I had checked "Don't allow exceptions" in Windows firewall. After I unchecked it, Web UI worked fine. Thank you for all you're help.
