Imagine that you’ve kept something for download on uTorrent and you are out and want to check how much of it is done. The easiest way will be call your home and ask anyone from your home to check and let you know. After you read this post, you no longer have to follow the above method. Just do as its said and you’ll be able to access your uTorrent from any part of the world.
This post shows you how to access your uTorrent client from any corner of the world. You DON’T need to have anything special to do this. You also DON’T need to have anything special such as a public IP address and stuff like that. All you need to know is how to use uTorrent client.
As we know that uTorrent is a (very) tiny BitTorrent client. It helps you download all stuffs that will keep you entertained, let it be games or your favorite movies or songs and stuff like that.
After the launch of uTorrent 3.0 I was amazed to see new features it introduced. The first one is the easy drag-n-drop files sharing system where you just drag and drop any file and it will directly generate a torrent download link.
The other one that I’ll be discussing here is the Remote or Web feature of uTorrent. With this feature you can easily access your uTorrent from any part of the world.
Web UI was a feature in uTorrent which helped you to achieve the same but you need to have a public ip and a port to get this working.
HOW TO VIEW YOUR uTORRENT CLIENT FROM A REMOTE PC
Remote uTorrent is easy to setup. Follow the steps below and your uTorrent will be available online.
Step 1: Enable uTorrent Remote Access
Fire up your uTorrent client. Go to Options->Preferences option. A Preferences dialog windows should appear. On the window select the “Remote” option from the left pane (must be the 4th last option in the left). Make sure to enable the checkbox “Enable uTorrent Remote Access”. After that’s done, fill in other details such as your Username and Password. After that’s done, click on the “Set Security Question” button.
Ok, that’s all you need to do on your uTorrent client. Now, its time to check it on a web browser.
Step 2: Test It!
Make sure your uTorrent client is started and Remote Access is enabled before trying to log in.
