    Hey,

    Thing is, ESET doesn't allow me to use torrents. It doesn't allow uTorrent to connect to the tracker, and only if I disable the firewall does it connect.

    I have set the firewall to "interactive" mode, and it once asked me for outgoing connections, but it hasn't done so for incoming connections.

    Could anyone help me out with the definition of port ranges on this?

    THX

    Open the user interface (GUI) . Enter the Advanced Setup Tree (F5)

    1. Navigate to Personal Firewall. Choose Interactive Mode

    2. Navigate to Personal Firewall -> IDS and Advanced options
    Make sure all services are allowed (a.k.a 5 options)

    3. In Personal firewall -> IDS and advanced options , enabled logging . Press OK.


    Then, open Personal firewall > Rules and zones > Zone and rule setup
    Choose "Toggle detailed view of all riles" (if already not set to this)
    Uncheck every rule that has in the name Block. Press Apply button now. Confirm with OK.

    Start creating new rule (use the button called "New")


    Name : your choice
    Direction : Both
    Action : Allow
    Protocol : TCP & UDP

    Additional action:
    check Log


    In Local tab - use the "Browse" button to point ESS to UTorrent's exe file
    In Remote tab - do not touch here .

    Confirm with OK . Press Apply butoon .Try again.

    This rule should make sure that all the communication for Utorrent (both incoming and outgoing) is allowed

    Maybe you have some rule above which block incoming connections?...I don't know how ESS handle rules and did order of rules have impact (not clearly answered yet).

    You can try this:

    1. Direction: In
    Action: Allow
    Protocol: TCP & UDP
    Local port: uTorrent listening port (which you can set in uTorrent preferences)
    App:utorrent exe

    2. Direction: Out
    Action: Allow
    Protocol: TCP
    Local port: 1024-5000
    Remote port: 80 (you can add some tracker ports if you know which)
    App:utorrent exe

    3. Direction: Out
    Action: Allow
    Protocol: TCP & UDP
    Local port: 1024-5000
    Remote port: 1024-65535
    App:utorrent exe

    4. Direction: Both
    Action: Block
    Protocol: TCP & UDP
    App:utorrent exe
