You might get a more accurate count of BitTorrent connections with:

netstat -an | grep ^tcp\  | grep ":"[6][8,9][0-9][0-9] | grep -c -v LISTEN

Your command line merely shows all TCP connections that are in any state but
LISTEN.  This should count only connections on TCP 6881-6999, either inbound
or out.  AIUI, this is the port range used by the BitTorrent clients.
