Re: Does firewalling apply differently to torrents from this particular site?

As a firewalled user, you may only connect to unfirewalled users. So, if you finish a torrent and only a couple of firewalled users are left trying to download the show, you will not uploading anything to them. Currently, I only see you on one torrent and, unfortunately for you, the other leecher is firewalled. So, you will not upload a thing on that torrent and your ratio can only go down.

The key to setting up portforwarding is setting up a static IP for yourself. Most people use DHCP when they setup a router. That means that everytime you turn on your computer, you get a different IP from your router (an IP that looks like 192.168.1.xxx). In order to forward your ports, you need to tell your router that you always want the same local IP - like 192.168.1.100. Once you set up a static local IP, you may forward your ports to it and you will be unfirewalled and able to connect to everyone.
