For users from Singapore, we can help you configure port forwarding. See our computer service site. For international users, you can contact me through e-mail, letting me know your Skype account and time range you are available.

Otherwise, there's still light at the end of the tunnel. Basically, what this means that uTorrent tries to work around port forwarding by having another peer to help you setup the connection between two other peers.

Does port forwarding make my computer more vulnerable to security attacks? Yes, but as long as you keep your Windows and uTorrent updated, it should be of low concern. Remember, if every peer in a torrent does not have port forwarding enabled, no one can connect to any one. Port forwarding allows you to receive more connections from other peers and this means more speed.

Most modern routers have UPNP Universal Plug and Play built in where utorrent is directly able to communicate with the router to automatically setup the required ports. Another example, when you host a DOTA multi player game, you need to port forward. If you didn't have to, it means your router supports UPNP where port forwarding is automatically setup. Does this guide apply to the Apple Mac version of uTorrent?

Unfortunately, we are not familiar with the Mac version of uTorrent. However, we believe the guide still applies except for the following: To prevent this problem from occurring again, minimize hard drive activity such as copying large files or starting an application that requires a long loading time especially when uTorrent's download speeds are reaching a high level that requires high speed reading and writing.

If despite the attempts to minimize disk activity still results in the problem, it may be that you are downloading too fast for your hard drive to catch up. The uTorrent site reports that my port forwarding works, but I still have the red icon appearing at the bottom?

There is a possibility that the tracker is identifying an incorrect IP address. First, locate the IP address that the uTorrent port checker page reports. You can run the checker here. Restart uTorrent and check if it works better now. If not, change the field back to blank to allow uTorrent to automatically detect your IP Addrss.

Note that if you specify the IP address field and you ever restart your modem or your IP address changes somehow, you will need to change this field everytime if not the red icon will be back.

Unregistered I have to rescind my dramatic reply about cheat engine. Disclaimer Proceed at your own risk! Introduction This is a tutorial step by step guide on how to speed up uTorrent's configuration, a popular BitTorrent software.

What is the best port to open for uTorrent? There's no "best port" or good ports. All ports are suitable for use with uTorrent, unless you are running a program that is using the port. Some recommend a port number more than , but it does not matter as long as the port is not used by any other program.

Remember to re-adjust your port forwarding settings in your firewall and router too. There are two ways to update drivers: How do I reset utorrent settings?

Note that this will delete all saved torrents and settings. For Windows XP users: For Windows Vista and Windows 7 users, go to C: Moreover, not getting enough E1 lines either prevents the private sector ISPs from expanding their network of customers, or, more likely, forces them to offer slower speeds for each customer as they stretch the maximum amount of people on the same line.

Many ISPs will tell you that if a user wants a faster connection, they can get it — provided they are willing to pay for it. Many businesses in the country have slightly faster internet than in homes, though they often complain about the very high amount they pay for it.

The price of internet service is neither an outcome of market competition or of cost to the providers. That means a service provider cannot actually lower the price of the internet without a change in the tariffs applied to them. If internet speeds went up overnight astronomically, then, we would still have to wait for the government to pass a decree to make the faster internet affordable, and in this way Lebanon is still at the mercy of the government.

No one will access it. When I lived in Lebanon, the cost and related corruption was the often-cited reason for such poor Internet. Omar, with all respect, you live in a bubble. The speeds you describe are only available in limited parts of the capital.

Even in the suburbs, I just did a speedtest and got 3. Huge parts of the country do not get any coverage or even DSL. And what good is that speed with a limit of 60 GB? And that is expensive! Sorry Lebanon is a corrupt down to its bones… you see the corruption in its roads and internet and all its infrastructure.

Omar you surely do live in a bubble! They are just ripping you off,like they do on every single thing in Lebanon! Hello Omar, I will be working remotely from Lebanon and dialing into my offices here in the US for 3 weeks beginning in June Which company did you secure you internet with can I ask? I need to get this setup as I am thinking the speed offered at my hotel will not suffice.

Internet distribution is a true challenge for ISPs when the government chooses to compete head to head with the private sector. Just move to Dubai if you are in the tech industry.

Bull shit ministry of telecomunication. Siyesiyeh afshal men hayk mafi. Mish shatrin gheir y7otto 3ossi bil dwalib. Kell waz7ad byejeh bi wa2ef mashrou3 li2ablo bass li2anno mish men siyeseto. W balad bado yemshi. Thats a really good point Abdo. Bassil first announced fiber plans in , and so has every subsequent minister, but what happened? Today DSL in Lebanon is just as slow in terms of global standards as it was 10 years ago.

I think what is happening in telecom underscores a bigger issue which is how planning happens in ministries. The average lifespan of a Lebanese minister is about 1 year. Does this cause a rush for short term projects they can claim credit for while in office?
