I have recently seen many posts of person wanting to know how to setup multiple utorrent instances on their seedbox to be able to share it with another user.
First, you must follow BuggyMe's tutorial to setup the server as usual :
You then have one utorrent running under root
So now, to setup a second utorrent :
1 - Ask your server compagny to attribute you a new IP address (free for leaseweb and vectoral box, and some cost for leeware). This way, you will be able to bind different IP addresses to each instance of Utorrent running. You will avoid a lot of sh*t caused by using the same IP to connect to one tracker with two different usernames! If you plan to share your seedbox, this case will happen for sure.
2 - Login as root with putty on your server
3 - Type "adduser utorrent" or whatever name you want instead of utorrent
4 - Type "passwd utorrent" to change the user password
5 - Type "cd /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts"
6 - Type "cp ifcfg-eth0 ifcfg-eth0:1", this new file will have to contain your new IP address
7 - Type "vi ifcfg-eth0:1", the file should look like this :
8 - Edit the file to make it look like this :
(vi command guide : http://www.cs.colostate.edu/helpdocs/vi.html)
IPADDR=Your new IP address
9 - Type "/sbin/service network restart" , the new ip is now functionnal
10 - Type "su utorrent"
11 - Type "vncserver :2", you will have to set a password
12 - Open TightVNC viewer on your PC.
13 - On the TightVNC shell window, type wine notepad.exe, close the application once it's open.
14 - Type "cd /home/utorrent/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32"
15 - Type "wget http://download.utorrent.com/1.6.1/utorrent.exe" to install utorrent
16 - Type "wine utorrent.exe" to start utorrent
17 - Go the speed setup as usual, after all done, go into
Options->Preferences->Advanced and set the following variables :
to your new IP address
That's it! You now have two utorrent instances running with different IP address
Enjoy and feel free to leave comments to improve this first draft of the tutorial!
