How do I set up a proxy server for use with uTorrent?
Question by Foolish Guru: How do I set up a proxy server for use with uTorrent?
I use windows Vista and no matter what I try uTorrent just won’t work. I’m hoping that a proxy server will help but I have pretty much no clue what that is or how you use one.

If utorrent just won’t work period, then using a proxy will not correct that.
You may need to check that you have the ports utorrent uses properly forwarded to your router. There are some guides showing how to do this on the utorrent site.
I am using Vuze and am not sure of the settings necessary for setting up proxy use but I would think it would be similar. You need to only set up the proxy for your upload connection (if u can). This way your downloading is not slowed by the use of the proxy.
