    I have 8 rules set for utorrent.exe


    1. Outbound TCP Allow on ports 80, 8080 (for trackers)

    2. Inbound TCP/UDP Allow on all ports, remote address 127.0.0.1 (for loopback)

    3. Outbound TCP Allow on ports 1024 - 65535 (for peers)

    4. Inbound TCP Allow on ports 1024 - 65535 to local port 50321 (listening - this is my port forwarding rule)

    5. Inbound UDP Allow on ports 1024 - 65535 to local port 50321 (listening)

    6. Inbound TCP Block All

    7. Outbound TCP Block All

    8. Inbound/Outbound UDP Block All



    but it doesn't appear to work - checking port forwarding using the utorrent Speed Guide shows the port is not being forwarded.


    Where am I going wrong?

    I think you made these rules assuming they are applied in this particular order (like the old Kerio PF 2 did).
    These rules are useless. Delete them and test again.

    Deleting those did help but I still receive prompts for rules when utorrent is connecting and the "Logger" screen in utorrent shows 192.168.0.1 is being blocked - that's the ip address of my router

    Add a rule for this traffic (Router-IP/Port) or better, add the Router-IP to the Trusted zone.
