You may want to check your log and find the actual ports hes using. Not many people use the default ports.

HUH ? Port-27081 is for counter strike .
 
So , u are playing Team combo counter strike . kool !
Though , If u didnt find any other port , then maybe Bittorrent Is offline for a while?
or Can u place a list of ports u find in Ur log list , here?
 
Let me know the status?

Hi if you are very sure that utorrent is using 27081, then just block that, by using access restrictions feature.
 
But there is option in utorrent to use random port each time it is started. Hope your roommate is not using that option!
