BitTorrent operates best when it has a TCP server port open, and defaults to open it at 6881 or higher (you can change this in Prefs).

top file menu> select prefs
note the port number

so.. if it is using port 6881 ... then
go into your router
(using the as your guide - every router is a little different in verbage used)
once inside your router, you open/forward port to your workstation

(yes you need to know what IP address your computer has - it may be something like or ..etc)

take it slow - smoke if you got 'em - it will all work out.
