    Hi
    can this rule be safe?

    Protocols: TCP or UDP
    Packets: in and out
    Address: From My @IP
    Local port : all
    Remote ports: all
    Application: μTorrent

    the rule fired only when i run utorrent

    LOL! Easy there.....

    That's not such a good idea... :p

    I'll attach an image of an uTorrent rule, an ball-park what it should look like, you may have to modify the ports to match your port range or specified port setting.

    Phant0m, can you please explain why you used IPV4 as I have used just ALL in that position in my uTorrent rule.

    Is IPV4 more specific for some reason ?

    Hi Mantra :)

    µtorrent...

    The rule of thumb with LnS is:

    [MOVE]"The blocked outgoing packets are your friends"[/MOVE]

    First some hints about µTorrent needs and rules:

    1- One server rule specific to µtorrent in a position in the rules list before or at the top of the rules blocking the incoming connection sollicitations:

    TCP syn in blocked

    2- One general rule for the Internet Services and Applications allowing all authorised application in the application filtering to connect to Internet in TCP like the general rule of the LnS enhanced rules set "Autorise Standards Internet Services"

    3- One rule specific to µtorrent for the NAT-Port Mapping Protocol in UDP

    4- One rule specific to µtorrent for the BitTorrent InfoHash in UDP

    5- One rule specific to µtorrent for the DHT in UDP


    Then at the level of the Operating System the SSDP service must be started in automatic and Universal Plug'n'Play service in manual (it will be started if needed). This is for a PC in a LAN with a local IP Adrress such as 192.168.xxx.xxx . These services allow the Network address translation...

    Finally at the level of the µtorrent options yous must check the mapping options of the ports...

    Screen captures + rules there:
    Problem with µtorrent rules and positions of the rules in the list

    This thread is in french but pictures are "international" and rules works in any languages... ;)


    For the server rule you must have the same port in this ser rule AND io the options of µtorrent. So change it accordingly for the one you prefer (in µtorrent and LnS rule...)

    Hope this help. Let us know.

    :)

    Hi Fad,

    You shouldn't specify 'ALL' for Ethernet type .. especially in this case. If you want IPv4 + IPv6 applied, simply use IP.

    why not
    enable every connection inbound and outbout but fired by utorrent
    so when utorrent is not loaded this rule is turn off
