    Hi,

    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 :
    https://filesharingtalk.com/vb3/f-gui...through-169620

    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 :

    DEVICE=eth0
    BOOTPROTO=static
    HWADDR=**:**:**:**:**:**
    IPADDR=**.**.**.***
    NETMASK=255.255.255.0
    ONBOOT=yes
    TYPE=Ethernet

    8 - Edit the file to make it look like this :
    (vi command guide : http://www.cs.colostate.edu/helpdocs/vi.html)

    DEVICE=eth0:1
    BOOTPROTO=static
    HWADDR=**:**:**:**:**:**
    IPADDR=Your new IP address
    NETMASK=255.255.255.0
    ONBOOT=yes
    TYPE=Ethernet

    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 :
    net.bind_ip
    net.outgoing_ip
    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!
