Port forwarding for utorrent

  1. Hey I was just wondering how to "forward a port" for utorrent. I've been to portforward.com and presumably they have the instructions I need but I don't know anything about my router or network or anything, as I'm in a dorm room. Anything I can do to get utorrent working properly?

    Your first problem is you need to control the router -- if it's a common router for the
    entire dorm, you're out of luck.

    Secondly, any given port can only be fowarded to ONE system, so if someone else
    has already done this, you're now out of luck AND up a creek without a paddle.

    Lastly, you need the port number used by uTorrent and the ip-address of your system.
    If all systems on the router are using DHCP,
    you're out of luck, up a creek without a paddle, and the weather report is 40 days and nights of rain :(
