I do know that a thing called U torret popped up when I tried to download a file...If that helps.
1) Setup your workstation as a static IP address.
2) Download client (Utorrent recommended) Any questions during configuration, post up.
3) Login to your router and setup port forwarding matching the port number used in Utorrent.
4) On your firewall software make sure there is an exception for Utorrent and add port access for both TCP and UDP for the same port number used in Utorrent and Router.

That's it in a nutshell. Research, read, learn ... Don't let frustration get the best of you. I remember it took me like 3 months before I figured it out.
