Port range for utorrent

Devedander 8,844 826 October 30, 2008 at 11:19 PM
I have looked around and seen it requested but never found a way to do it. Does anyone know a way to specify the ports that utorrent will choose from when picking a random port? For instance specify only ports 4000-4300?

Options Menu > Preferences > Connection

You can specify on that page for the listening port. If you have a router / firewall that is the port you want to allow for incoming traffic.

Thanks but I want to specify a range to auto random every time.

Basically I want it to randomly choose a port (from a range) every time it starts so I keep using different ports.

Then UPnP will port forward that port for me.

But there is no UPnP for QoS so I need to QoS a certain range of ports.

As it is utorrent seems to use anything from 10000 to 70000. I would prefer to say "choose from ports between 40000 and 45000" and then QoS those ports all down to bulk.

I have considered QoS ing that whole MAC or IP down but that screws internet on any computers that also torrent.

Thanks!

Why not set QoS by protocol? That's what I do with my WRT54G.

With uTorrent you can specify a specific listen port, but that is it.

even if you do that the QoS rules dont apply to torrent encryption.

Does anything legitimate regularly use ports over 10000? Seems to me like even if you did QoS on everything over 10k that it would never hurt anything important.
