Default utorrent UPnP doesn't work

I've just started using utorrent after using bitlord for a long time.

utorrent is pretty good but I had some problems using the UPnP

The only way I could get it to communicate through the router was to shutdown the UPnP option in the utorrent preferences and then manually open a port in the router settings.

Also while you're waiting for your torrents to download, if you click help and then press t, there is a tetris game you can play to help pass the time

Anyone know if its really neccessary to forward udp traffic for utorrent?

I just have tcp allowed and it works fine

Go here, select your router and follow the instructions for the program that you want to use.

Thanks for that zer02004.

That site says udp should be enabled but I have a feeling that its not neccessary.
I think it only needs udp when using DHT (Distributed Hash Table)
BitTorrent optionally uses a DHT as a distributed tracker to provide rendezvous between clients downloading a particular file.
But if your downloading from a tracker that doesn't use DHT then I don't think you need it, but I'm not sure
