Is there any config files in your $HOME ? Like a .utorrent folder ? – NorTicUs Oct 18 '12 at 10:20

Edit utserver.conf file located under uTorrent installation directory. If you don't find it go ahead and create one.

Add the following line to utserver.conf file

ut_webui_port: 8085

Check this link for more available settings that can be used with uTorrent utserver.conf file

Hope this helps.

It is not as simple as that. Modifying utserver.conf in the installation directory does not necessarily change the port on a restart of the program. – Droidzone Oct 4 at 2:46
