Torrents and ports

Post by oizo123 » Mon Jun 27, 2016 4:59 pm

Hi!

I was playing around with the settings yesterday and tried to create a config where I don't allow outgoing traffic on all ports.

I run uTorrent on a Macmini with osx El Capitan. I have one port assigned in the settings of uTorrent, lets say port 12345.

I have created a custom uTorrent service with this port in it, tcp/udp just to be sure.

However, even if i allow the standard bittorent ports pre-defined in Murus as well as my custom listening port I get no connections. As soon as I allow all outgoing traffic it starts downloading/uploading.

I have noticed, after "sudo lsof -i | grep uTorrent", that a lot of ports in the higher range are beeing used. If I had to allow that big a range I could as well just let All services be allowed to everyone =)

I think the description of the problem is quite clear, get back to me if you need more details somewhere!

Please advise,
Oizo

Hi again,

No comments at all?

I have been reading up and everything tells me I just have to make sure the listening port is open as well as a range of ports but this range seems to be real extensive when I check my open connections in terminal while using uTorrent.

It results in having to ALLOW all outgoing traffic.

hi

incoming tcp port is forwarded properly on your router?

if yes, put your custom service in "managed Inbound Services"

i use Transmission and that's all i do

Hi,

The port is forwarded properly. I'll continue playing around trying to solve the problem. Thanks ayway!
