    What does it mean when it says "Change your listen port" and how can I do it?

    open preferences, click connection then it should say listening port, mine is set you 4545, change yours to something like that or hit random port.

    Im not sure what seems to be the problem. Do you have utorrent allowed through any firewall you may have? If you have a router do you have it configured for that port?

    Yes I allowed it in my router but it maybe my firewall on the pc blocking it..? I'll disable it tomorrow as see what happens.

    It probably is the firewall on the PC, if your behind a router and have good antivirus installed I generally wouldn’t say you need a firewall on your pc, the antivirus should stop any nasties calling home and your router’s hardware firewall will defend you quite nicely.
