I can't telnet in from an external account. I did find the following
link though, which suggests that NTL are interfering with BT data:
Not sure if it's true, but it would explain the problem if it is.
/sbin/natd -interface xl0 -redirect_port tcp 192.168.0.1:6881-6889 6881-6889
(I've used 6881-6999 too, it didn't make any difference).
I shouldnt need to tweak my firewall rules, should I? My config is based
on rc.firewall 'client'; the natd redirect is straight after the rules
to prevent IP spoofing.
