    Hello and welcome here.

    I am still on 12.2, thus 12.3 could be different, but I can not find abything utorrent in the standard repos.
    This would mean that you installed it from elsewhere, but you did not explain anything. For standard server deamons there is a standard way how to start them using YaST, but in this case it will be difficult to help you when we have no idea what you installed, nor what documentation came with it (was there any, and did you read it?), etc.

    Hi hcvv

    Thanks alot for your quick answer, i did follow some steps described in here

    The only diffrence is that instead of downloading the file the way it says there i went directly to utorrent page and downloaded the latest version directly from there ( utorrent-server-3.0-ubuntu-10.10-27079.tar.gz )
    Direct Link to what i Downloaded is in here

    I will be thank full for any help or advice you could give me.

    It is nice you want us to read that link, but we want to know what you did. As exactly as possible and wherever possible backed by real computer text.

    Now, when you think that building and installing it went without a glitch, I will not ask you to post the build and install commands/output, but you must be very sure that was OK of course.

    But you did not answer my question about the documentation. As this is build by you, it is not an openSUSE oriented RMP (it is no RPM at al) and as such it will probably not install itself in a way that YaST can find it as a service. We need to know what the documentation says about starting it.

    You don't build and install uTorrent server for Linux. You just extract it, and run

    Code:
    cd utserver-server-v3_0
    ./utserver
    That starts the server, then you open your browser, and enter

    Code:
    http://localhost:8080
    to start the GUI.

    Basicly what i did was :

    - Download the tar.gz file
    -Extracted the contents to a folder named /opt
    -set permissions 777 to the folder /opt/utorrent-server-v3_0
    -install package libssl0.9.8
    -Build and install by running the ./utorrent command

    As for all this it showed no errors at all, as for the documentation , I didnt see any documentation on the utorrents website or the utorrent download that talks about auto start, mostly it says that to start Utorrent Server you will need to run in terminal the following :
    Code:
     utserver -settingspath /opt/utorrent-server-v3_0
    after this the server is started it all runs silk and smooth until i turn my pc and need to re do this last step on terminal so server starts.

    hope i responded correctly since i am a complete noob at this hehe

    My conclusion is that your real question is:

    How do i run
    Code:
    utserver -settingspath /opt/utorrent-server-v3_0
    automaticaly at each boot.

    Try puting that line in /etc/init.d/boot.local
    May be it is best to add a complete path in from of utserver.

    hcvv , you are right on that, real question is how to run
    Code:
    utserver -settingspath /opt/utorrent-server-v3_0
    automaticaly at each boot.

    As i am a total noob could you point me out to know how can I edit that file , maybe give me some guide or something for me to learn a bit.

    I am sure i need to open that file with a text editor via terminal , but i dont know the commands to do it, could you help me with it ??


    Thanks alot in advance

    You may use e.g. vi in a terminal, but you can also use the KDE "execute a command" from the main menu and do
    Code:
    kdesu kwrite /etc/init.d/boot.local
    when you are more fluent with kwrite.

    Ok , so I have run in terminal
    Code:
    kdesu kwrite /etc/init.d/boot.local
    it opened this with Kwrite

    # /etc/init.d/boot.local
    #
    # script with local commands to be executed from init on system startup
    #
    # Here you should add things, that should happen directly after booting
    # before we're going to the first run level.
    #
    So i just added the code
    Code:
    utserver -settingspath /opt/utorrent-server-v3_0
    so It looks like this

    #
    
    
    utserver -settingspath /opt/utorrent-server-v3_0
