help configuring Your-Freedom proxy with Utorrent on college campus

I have done this before so I know it can be done. I need help configuring Utorrent with the proxy Your-Freedom. I have them both installed on my computer but I am not so good at figuring out addresses, host "stuff", incoming and outgoing ports, and the rest of it. I have already seen the one page with 2 pictures that seems to be Your-Freedom's "tutorial" for setting up what I am trying to do, but It is very unclear on several things. I wrote all the settings and numbers down on a sheet of paper once, but that is long gone. (bummer) So if anyone would assist me, I would really appreciate it.

Re: help configuring Your-Freedom proxy with Utorrent on college campus

anyone? If I did it before, it can't be that hard.  Unless anyone has an easier idea/solution. My main problem is that when I click on a torrent, to download it, you know utorrent or bittorrent is supposed to prety much automatically open a box and say ok, this is what you are downloading and so and so. But when I click on a torrent to d/l it, nothing happens. I'm pretty sure the school has them blocked. I dont know anything about VPN or IPv6...maybe that will help, maybe it wont...but I would really appreciate anyones help.

Re: help configuring Your-Freedom proxy with Utorrent on college campus

Hey, I was wondering what your easier way to configure uTorrent with a college campus network was. I am having troubles with Your Freedom. Any response would be appreciated. Thanks.

Re: help configuring Your-Freedom proxy with Utorrent on college campus

OK this will require a bit of reading on your part, but it def. is working for me. I have IE7 and firefox on my computer, so I can firefox normally on the schools network and then you will use the IE7 to browse the internet and download torrents from IE7. IE7 will be a little slower since it is not you local internet.

 

Your Freedom configuration: (Most of this is default and you should be able to run the wizard and it will do it for you)

Server connection tab: Address is ems06.your-freedom.de   Port is 443   Protocol is https

Ports Tab: Check the box for Socks 4/5 and use port 1080. Check the box for web proxy and use port 8080

 

Internet Explorer configuration:

tools/internet options/connections- Click Lan Settings. Check the box "Use a proxy server..." then click advanced. Type in "localhost" without the quotes in the socks proxy address box. type in port 1080 in the port box. dont check use same proxy box.

 

Utorrent 1.8 Configuration:

Options/preferences/Connection.   Port used for incoming should be set to 443. In the listening port section, check the bottom 2 boxes. (Enable NAT... and add windows...).   In the proxy server section, you want type socks4.  your prxy will be localhost.  your port will be 1080.  Do not check auth or use proxy for peer to peer.

 

In the bittorrent tab under utorrent prefs, go to the basic bittorrent features. Leave the IPhostname field blank and check the top 4 of the 6 boxes. Under protocol Encryption, set outgoing as enabled and check the box allow incoming...

 

Now I believe that is all the settings I have. A few more things, I am not responsible for anything actions you take. IF youget in trouble, I have no part in it. Your-Freedom willneed to be reset every hour if you have the free version/account like I do. IE7 will run slowl, but you can use it to download, so what I would reccomend is using firefox to find the torrent you want, and copying it from there and pasting it into IE7 address to speed things up. I hope this works for you if you decide to try it. I really dont know too much about networking and stuff liek this, but i decided to paly aroudn with it one day and that is what I came up with. Those settings may only work on my computer and only on my network, who knows. But good luck. Ill be here if you need any other questiosn answered.

well now whoever wants it, can use it. and if for some reason, the guy that is in charge of the internet at my school sees this, then i guess i deserve to have them blocked this way too.

Re: help configuring Your-Freedom proxy with Utorrent on college campus

hmm...maybe its a "user error" that is making it retarted. If I can use it, then it works fine. And also, in the business world too, if it works, then that is all that matters. People will build off of that to make it better. I was just providing one solution and if it isn't working for you, then add your input. But IT WORKS!!! THAT is what matters.

Re: help configuring Your-Freedom proxy with Utorrent on college campus

Thank you! Really I mean it!

After this setup (which was really tiring to read) my uTorrent started to WORK!

God bless you!

 

And I signed my account just to say this.

You don't really have to figure out the addresses your self. just auto attempt and itll get all you need.

Might take a while. And are you using Sockscap ? for If I'm correct 'if not please do correct me' you cant just run any programs with youfreedom with out sockscap. I used yourfreedom on a proxy server to play Wolrd of Warcraft had to use your-freedom to get connection and Sockscap to launch.

perhaps it works the same for Utorrent.
