This tutorial shows you how to easily install uTorrent sever on Ubuntu and Linux Mint. There’s no command, just a few clicks!
First, download uTorrent server: http://www.utorrent.com/downloads/linux. Check 32-bit or 64-bit by top-right corner shutdown menu (gear icon) -> About This Computer.
After downloading, navigate to the package in Nautilus file browser. Then decompress it.
Go into the extracted folder, right-click on utserver and select Properties.
Make sure that the box before “Allow execute as a program” is checked.
Before starting this service, search for and install libssl0.9.8 (SSL shared libraries) from Ubuntu Software Center.
NOTE: If you’re on 64-bit Ubuntu, press Ctrl+Alt+T and install the
libssl0.9.8 with command below in terminal to fix utserver not launching problem:
sudo apt-get install libssl0.9.8:i386
Then double click utserver to start uTorrent server (or run
~/Downloads/utorrent-server-v3_0/utserver command to start it). That’s right you see nothing happens because the server is running as a background program.
