Hiya

I've just been having a play with bittorrent, and it seems that
you can improve performance by enabling port forwarding between
your router and the desktop running the bittorrent client:

I did a bit of searching around, and it seems you have to use
natd rather than ipfw for this.  I did as suggested at:

but my bittorrent client still isn't receiving incoming
connections.

Anyone managed to get bittorrent port forwarding to work?

Cheers,
