If you are behind a NAT router, that is the place that you have to
forward ports. Ask your ISP how to log in to your router. Get a manual
for the router online, if necessary. There is undoubtedly a
configuration page for port forwarding. You want to forward the port
that you select with the proper protocol (for Azureus that's both TCP
and UDP) to the local IP of your machine. If the machine uses DHCP to
get an IP, most routers will forward to the machine name. If it won't,
you'll need to assign the machine a static IP to permit port forwarding.
Since the way you do this is different for every router, I can't really
give you anything more specific.
Let us know how it works out.
