Re: Mac- Stealth connection

its almost always about the router/firewall config.

lets say your torrent client is 'listening' on port 6881..
you dont open port 6881 or ports 6881-6889 (on your router) to your static IP (on port 6881)..
other people are offering torrent pieces - on many-many 'other ports' (whatever they pick)
you need to open (accept) ALL ports on your router to your ONE port & IP address.

your torrent client only works on ONE port - but needs to accept from Every/All ports.

hope that makes sense.
