    Please lock/delete this thread. I've made a post on the uTorrent forums and they are helping me take care of this there.

    Pick any port that is not a designated port such as FTP 21, DNS 53, etc.... and open that port, called port forwarding, in your rouiter/firewall device. WIndows firewall might be running as well and you will need to disable or open the same port as well. You need to open the port only on the incoming side if your router demands both in and out directions.

    You can also use port triggering as well.

    Sorry, couldn't help myself! :D

    Yes, definitely make sure to use a non-occupied port to forward the service and double check the firewall.
    Best of luck to you.

    Lol, thank you. I just downloaded a earlier version and it worked though, must have just been a bug with that version.
