    Default How to open a port for a specific program

    I use uTorrent (a p2p prog) and it requires that a port is open for communications. This is really needed.

    uTorrent does set it up automatically on the windows firewall but not on other firewalls like my ZA PRO 8... and I don't know how to set it up.

    Ideally, i would prefer to open this port only when uTorrent is running.

    In your explanations, assumes that the port number is 12345.
    Thanks

    For opening ports, this tutorial may help:

    However, you should first go to Program Control and allow the appropriate permissions for the uTorrent program. This does the work in majority of the cases and no port opening is required on the part of the user.
