You should use any port over 10,000. Uncheck UPnP, if it’s not, at options>preferences>connection. If using any firewall, even windows, make utorrent an exception in it. On a port check in speed guide, is it red or green? Enable Protocol Encryption, from one guide: Go to: Options > Preferences > BitTorrent
- Go to â€˜Protocol encryptionâ€™, you can choose between â€˜enabledâ€™ and â€˜forcedâ€™. â€˜Enabledâ€™ will give you more connections but offers less protection against traffic shapers.
I would recommend to try â€˜enabledâ€™ first, if that doesnâ€™t increase your speeds you need to swich to â€˜forcedâ€™.
- Ticking â€˜Allow legacy incoming connectionsâ€™ allows non ecrypted clients to connect to you. This improves compatibility between clients but makes you more vulnerable to traffic shapers.
I would recommend to tick this box, but if that doesnâ€™t increase your speeds, untick it!
