Well, first find out if you are *really* firewalled (sometimes if the tracker is busy it will give a false Firewalled.): NAT Check (http://btfaq.com/natcheck.pl)

If you really aren't firewalled, then usually just stopping and then starting the torrent will get rid of that FIREWALLED label. If you really are firewalled, then you will need to forward your ports through your router and any firewalling application you are using. I have a link in my sig for doing this with XP Firewall. For your router, head on over to portforward.com and follow their instructions. If you are having problems, feel free to ask for more help in this thread.
