    µTorrent (also known as µT or uTorrent or uT) is a lightweight, incredible and perhaps the most popular BitTorrent Client for Windows, Linux and Mac Operating Systems. µTorrent installation in Linux is much different than that in Windows and Mac OS. In Linux, µTorrent acts like a web server and it needs to be accessed through your browser. This article will guide you to install µTorrent client in your debian based system.

Installation

Step 1: Download the .tar.gz file from the source.

wget http://download.utorrent.com/linux/utorrent-server-3.0-25053.tar.gz

Step 2: Extract the downloaded archive file to the directory /opt.

sudo tar zxvf utorrent-server-3.0-25053.tar.gz -C /opt/

Step 3: Make it executable.

sudo chmod -R 777 /opt/utorrent-server-v3_0/

Step 4: Link the µTorrent to the /usr/bin directory.

sudo ln -s /opt/utorrent-server-v3_0/utserver /usr/bin/utserver

Step 5: Run the µTorrent Server.

sudo apt-get install libssl0.9.8:i386

Step 6: Open your browser and enter:

http://[Your-IP-Address]:8080/gui/

For Example:

http://192.168.186.180:8080/gui/

Step 7: Enter 'Admin' as the Username and keep the Password field vacant.

    1. Please tell us about the OS and its version you are using.

      Before that, try-

      sudo apt-get install libssl*
