    Hi All,
    Love the idea of TorrentTouch but am having some problems.

    I've got uTorrent webui set up and it works fine from a PC browser if I go to
    http://192.168.0.3:8081/gui.

    However, TT wants me to set up URL and port separately.
    If I set URL in TT to http://192.168.0.3 and port to 8081 - doesn't connect. Connection description changes to http://192.168.0.3:8081 - which isn't right.

    If I set URL to http://192.168.0.3:8081/gui then the Port field insists on being populated. When I enter the port here as well, the connection string is 192.168.0.3:8080/gui:8081 which isn't right either.

    If I set URL to http://192.168.0.3/gui and enter the port the connection string is http://192.168.0.3/gui:8081 which isn't right either.

    If I set URL to http://192.168.0.3 and port to 8081/gui (which it accepts) then the connection string looks correct, but it doesn't work.

    Basically I can't get it to connect to the correct address of http://192.168.0.3:8081/gui.

    Can anyone help?

    hmm, no help here. but i can tell you that it works for me and I dont recall having to change anything on my setup.

    the only issue i have is, it takes a a couple of tries to add a torrent by url.

    I dont know if this is the issue, but 192.168.0.3 is probably your INTERNAL ip address. You need to know your external IP address. The internal one is the one assigned by the router while the external is the address to the router itself. Then the router directs the traffic to your PC based on the port (assuming that you have it forwarded)

    yeah, I know, I can do tcp/up fine, very happy with the network side of stuff. All internal lan here...it just doesn't want to connect. I'm not confident that its pointing at the correct url string, and whilst the torrents webui is accessible from the touchpad browser AMD I can log in, it doesn't actually display so I've no work around.
    works great on all other machines on the lan tho.

    The developer helped me set it up for my Pre months ago, if you contact him, he may help you. Another route is to contact your router tech support, they've helped in the past as well.

    for url i just have http://192.168.1.203, no /gui/ no port

    hmm, same here (well, slightly differnt settings but you get the idea). Mailing the dev to see if he can help...

    I'll be home within the hour, I'll see if I can't help you out then.

    So I just got home and checked my settings. I use my actual IP address, not 192.168.0.1 or whatever you're router combo happens to be. Go to What Is My IP Address - Shows Your IP Address and get your actual IP address and when you set it up on your TouchPad, you should enter that there. Then in the next box, enter whatever port number uTorrent tells you to use, found in Options/Preferences/Connection. It will have a port number which you can randomize. That's pretty much it. Get it working on your home network first before you try and work on remote(through freeTether or whatever 3G solution you have).

    Hope that helped.

    Ok edit my mistake I think I just gave you the directions for while you're out and about, lol.

    I forgot I was still tethered to my phone, and well, that's those directions.

    I'm pretty sure it's the exact same thing, but what you want to do is set up a static IP address for your PC at home, (on your home network). I'm not 100% on the ins and outs of that, but it's something to do with your computer will randomize it's home network IP address unless you set it to static via command line. I'll see if I can't dig that up.

    How to set up a static IP address:

    Setting a Static IP Address in Windows XP - PortForward.com

    Once you do this, you should be all set.

    Hi There,
    Thanks for the response, but I've done all this. My server's on a static IP, with the uTorrent WebUI accessible by any other machine on my LAN. Touchpad is on same LAN. Not bothered about doing it across the WAN, although once it works on the LAN that's a trivial matter of forwarding a port which I can do easily.

    My actual IP of my server is 192.168.0.3 in this case. The Touchpad web browser can see the WebGUI (although it doesn't login) so it's not an IP mismatch, or firewall issue or network connectivity problem.
    I'm good on the TCP/IP stuff, and this is definitely set correctly.

    The problem is that Torrenttouch HD doesn't want to connect using the same settings as any other PC on my LAN...

    Just to confirm:
    1) is Torrenttouch behind the scenes connecting to "http://you.real.ip.addressort/gui"?
    If so, is it correct that under the listed servers in TorrentTouch that it should display as the icon, the server name and then "http://your.real.ip.addressort" i.e doesn't show the /gui bit, or is this indicative of a problem?

    2) I've tried using both the standard uTorrent "port used for incoming connections" port, and the "alternate listening port" options. Should I be able to use either? Can't get either of them to connect with TorrentTouch.

    3) Which version of uTorrent have you tested against? I might try regressing to an earlier version if I can't get any further.

    4) I noticed that when I uninstalled/reinstalled TouchTorrent it retained my settings. Is there a way I can totally remove it and then reinstall to test?

    Cheers, appreciate your help with this.

    I'm using uTorrent 2.2.1
    This is what my setup looks like on my TouchPad:
    Home LABEL
    http://192.169.0.169 URL
    ##### PORT
    Mynamehere USERNAME
    ******** PASSWORD

    You have to go into Options/Preferences/WebUI and set up your Username/Password, and make sure your port matches what you have on your TouchPad.

    You need to go into your router 192.168.0.1 and have that port open.

    2 boxes checked off in Connections are: Enable NAT-PMP Port Mapping and Allow Windows Firewall Exception.

    That's all I can think of really. If I'm telling you things you already know, sorry I can't be of much more help. Hopefully you get it

    OK - posting back. I uninstalled and then installed an old version (2.2) of uTorrent via oldapps.com and it works. Looks like new version of uTorrent doesn't like this app. Still, as far as I'm concerned I don't see any advantage to using the newer version of uTorrent, so I'll stick with this and control it from my Touchpad. Cheers Sledge!

    PS noticed that TPB searches tend to return Magnet links that uTorrent doesn't appear to download, is this normal?
    Also, is it possible to add another BT search engine (like BTJunkie) to the list?

    Lastly, is it possible to add the option to let you download a torrent via the TouchPad browser, and then open it in TorrentTouch?
    I've added the Preware patch to add the download option to links in the browser, so I can download a torrent file to the TouchPad but it would be great to have TorrentTouch registered as a file handler for .torrent files so it would open them and upload to your home server.

    I know you can do it by copy and paste but it would be v nice to do it with a single click...

    I have a similar setup on my Android phone and it rocks. What do you think?

    Glad you got it working

    I asked the developer about adding btjunkie, when I first got this for my Pre, and he said the app didn't support it.

    I haven't tried it but it says you can download by URL, so I would think that you just open your browser and go to btjunkie find what you are looking for, and it should? Give you a URL download link?

    I find isoHunt works well enough for my needs with the TouchPad.

    upgraded to utorrent 3 and it broke torrent touch pro. boo.

    i once asked for the magnet link to work. dev said not possible.

    when it did work, copy and pasting usually took several tries.

    so yeah touchtorrent doesnt work with utorrent 3.0, but the developer emailed me saying there will be a fix. fingers crossed that it will be soon.

    in the mean time i use fuji warriors ipad template.

    btw, i really like web 3.0 web access now. they have added a lot. wait i havent even tried it on the touch pad (just the pc).

    btw, 3.0 seems to have an official app for android where if you sign in, you can add torrents from on the road. im weary about security though.
