    I don't mean to post any Warez, I use uTorrent for educational purposes (sharing stuff legally)

    As soon as I installed uTorrent today (v3.0) when I opened it. I kept getting different prompts from ESS that a remote computer is trying to access mine.

    Everytime I pressed Do not allow, I get another prompt, I tried pressing allow, I get another prompt from a different address.

    It never stopped until I exited uTorrent

    IS this normal? It was flagged red by ESS so I was worried

    Hi,

    Those are flagged red by ESS because they're inbound connections (from Internet to your computer). Is 38283 the port number you're using for utorrent? If so, then you should allow connection. In order to not be prompted again, please create a rule to allow traffic through this port:

    When you get that window again, select "Remember action", then click "Show advanced options" at the bottom. You'll see additional options, please tick the box for "Local port 38283" and then click Allow. This way, you'll create a rule to allow all inbound traffic through port 38283 and won't be prompted again.
    You can do the same to permanently block all those connections.

    Hope this helps.
