You *can't* start it from putty unless you set your $DISPLAY environment
variable to point to an X server ( and one that will allow you to
connect, which they shouldn't by default ).

To start with, I would walk over to the PC where you're trying to run
it, and check that it runs properly in a local X session. Then you can
try with VNC ( ie open an xterm in your VNC window, and start uTorrent
from there ). Then when that's working, you can try launching it from
putty and exporting it to your VNC session ( if that's what you really
must do ).

That's right. And you'll also have to tell your X server to allow your
remote client to connect if you go down this path. You can use the
'xhost' command to allow access to remote clients.
