		hello Glyn,

			Are you behind a router, if so open port 10000 to 10005 on the router and 
port forward this port set  to  the box you will be using to bittorent on to. 
The bittorent box would be better set up to have a stactic ip. All so the 
bittorent client needs its ports setting up the same as the router 
10000 to 10005

                   again all the best

                            peter colton
