I just posted/uploaded a new show http://www.thetradersden.org/forums/showthread.php?t=71852

But currently I am firewalled and I cannot get out of it. Will this affect my seeding? Any help to get out of being firewalled would be great. I have unchecked my Windows Firewall and nothing seems to work. Thanks for any help in advance.

If you have the firewall disabled on your computer, most likely you are firewalled at the router. You would have to read up on forwarding your ports over at portforward.com if you want to be unfirewalled.

All being firewalled means is that you may only connect to other users who are NOT firewalled. Usually, this isn't a big deal for seeders because there will be leechers on the torrent who are unfirewalled and you can transfer the data to them and they can connect to everybody.
