New to the Den, and I want to make sure I keep my share ratio kosher. It looks like I am firewalled. I know about canyouseeme.org and I have had no probs downloading. My question is how do I determine which port I am using?

It depends on what bittorrent client you are using. In Vuze, you can find the port it is using by going to Vuze > Preferences > Connection > Incoming TCP listen post (and UDF listen port - they are usually the same). That is the port you need to forward in your router.

In Utorrent to find the port go to Options - Preferences - Connection

I may be wrong but imho the port # matters little. It's how long you seed/keep the computer on that counts.
Since you have 20 Gb to give back I'd leave it on 24/7 till things look better.

(my 2 cents) :D

The port # matters if you want to forward your ports so you aren't firewalled. :)

Partially true, however if said firewalled user is seeding and only firewalled leechers try to connect, no one can help each other out.
