Here are the quick few steps you must take to connect Torrential for WP7 to your computer.
Step 1 – Download the latest version of uTorrent
Start by ensuring you have the latest version, which you can download here:
Step 2 – Enable the WebUI Setting
- Tick the “Enable Web UI” checkbox
- Change the username
- Change the password
- Tick the “Alternative listening port” checkbox
- Change the Alternative listening port to a different five digit number greater than 10000 (eg. 14521)
Step 3 – Forward Your Alternative Port
The quickest and easiest way to forward your port is to find and follow the instructions for your router at http://portforward.com/
Remember the goal is to forward your alternative port (eg. 14521) to your computer’s IP address (usually starts with 192.168)
Step 4 – Sign up for a Dynamic DNS Service (It’s Free!)
Your home network’s IP address is usually always changing, so to talk to your computer using a constant and easy to remember server address, you will need to sign up for a Dynamic DNS service. Advanced users can choose any service, but I would recommend regular users use http://www.dyndns.com – It’s free.
Be sure to follow their instructions carefully and you should end up with a nice Server URL (eg. ben.dyndns.org)
Step 5 – Enter Your New Details Into Torrential
Note: The Server URL setting in Torrential includes the dynamic dns address you created above, followed by a colon, followed by the alternative port number.
I will post solution to popular problems here as they arise, stay tuned.
I get the error “Server found but invalid url, check your port number”
Make sure you have added your port number to the end of your Server URL with a colon at the start (ben.dyndns.org:14521)
