Install utorrent server on your VPS

Install utorrent server on your VPS

Debian 64 bit:

Download this utorrent server package:
Latest Alpha 64bit:

wget http://download-new.utorrent.com/endpoint/utserver/os/linux-x64-debian-7-0/track/beta/ --content-disposition
tar xf utserver.tar.gz
mv utorrent-server-* ~/utorrent
cd ~/utorrent
wget http://droidzone.in/utstart
chmod +x utstart
./utstart install
./utstart start &

Or as a one-liner:

wget http://download-new.utorrent.com/endpoint/utserver/os/linux-x64-debian-7-0/track/beta/ --content-disposition && tar xf utserver.tar.gz && mv utorrent-server-* ~/utorrent && cd ~/utorrent && wget http://droidzone.in/utstart && chmod +x utstart && ./utstart install && ./utstart start &

Debian 32 Bit:

Replace the first download url with http://download-new.utorrent.com/endpoint/utserver/os/linux-i386-debian-7-0/track/beta/

Installing the autostart scripts:

cd utorrent
./utstart install

Now, run the server if it’s a first install:

./utstart start &

, or reboot your VPS to start the daemon at boot.

You can launch the utorrent server GUI on the VPS at the following location:

http://yourhostname:8080/gui/

or

http://yourip:8080/gui/

The first time you run it, make sure that you create a password for admin, by visiting the preferences screen. The default username is admin, and password is blank.

Sometimes you might get the following error message:

./utserver: error while loading shared libraries: libssl.so.0.9.8: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Solution: Download and manually install the .deb package from http://packages.debian.org/squeeze/libssl0.9.8

For a 64 bit Debian: http://packages.debian.org/squeeze/amd64/libssl0.9.8/download

wget http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/pool/main/o/openssl/libssl0.9.8_0.9.8o-4squeeze14_amd64.deb
dpkg -i libssl0.9.8_0.9.8o-4squeeze14_amd64.deb

For 32 bit Debian:

wget http://droidzone.in/debian/libssl0.9.8_0.9.8o-4squeeze14_i386.deb
wget http://droidzone.in/debian/libssl0.9.8-dbg_0.9.8o-4squeeze14_i386.deb
dpkg -i *deb

Now try starting utorrent again. It works.

Transfer, export and import Putty sessions

Just execute the following as a batch file.

Puttyexporter.cmd

regedit /e %homepath%\Desktop\puttyexport.reg HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\SimonTatham\PuTTY\Sessions

This creates a .reg file on your desktop. Import it into the target PC to transfer settings.

Working with OpenVPN on Windows 8

Working with OpenVPN on Windows 8

Ok, I dont claim to know exactly what steps have fixed my connectivity issues with OpenVPN on Windows 8. But from what I’ve seen from community posts, it’s hardly a remote issue (forgive the pun).

Steps to install and use OpenVPN on Windows 8

Get the latest beta version of OpenVPN from the download page. Scroll down to the bottom where you will note beta/rc releases.

I used openvpn-install-2.3_rc1-I003-x86_64 for 64 bit Windows 8.

Before installing it, uninstall any OpenVPN installations you already have and the TAP driver installation.

After installing it, an OpenVPN GUI shortcut appears on the desktop. Right click it, select properties, and Advanced->Run as Administrator

Now, navigate to Network connections. (Just type ‘Network Connections’ in Metro Start).

In Network connections, identify the one that is labelled as “TAP-Windows Adaptor”.

Right click, Properties>Internet Protocol 4 (TCP/IPv4)>Properties>Advanced>

In Advanced TCP/IPv4, under WINS, choose to Disable NetBIOS over TCP/IP

 

Now, right click your OpenVPN icon on the system tray, edit config and/or copy the .ovpn file, key and certificates to C:/Program Files/OpenVPN/config (ProgramFilesx86 for 32 bit).

Try connecting to OpenVPN now. If the client connected, but IP does not change, reboot your computer. It may work now. 🙂

Remove ads from uTorrent

There are two of these-One of them is a small window at the bottom left, and the other is an area below the Menu bar.

You can remove both of these by:

Options>Preferences>Advanced

In the Search Box, type the following, and set the values to False

show_plus_upsell

sponsored_torrent_offer_enabled

The former also has a GUI option-Options-Show Plus Information
