I'm new to Ubuntu and still learning how to use it. Recently, I've been trying to install uTorrent, which I already was able to do so, but I need the port 8080 free to use run tomcat/glassfish and on port 80 php.

Briefly, how can I change uTorrent's port from 8080 to another one? I've been trying to find a solution for this issue for about 3 days now. I saw some solutions, such as create a utserver.config, but I have no clue in how to use it or configure it by terminal or on properties, that is something hardly explained by anyone.

Any help will be appreciated.

/etc/init.d/tomcat7 stop 

open utserver at 8080 and change in settings to another port.

/etc/init.d/tomcat7 start
