    You might need to make a service and create that port. With the port forwarding section on that modem, you select the service then forward to lan server ( your macs ip)

    Basically

    All traffic that comes in on port xxxx gets forward to xx.xx.xx.xx

    What is your ISP? Some go out of their way to make it difficult (although usually not impossible) to run BitTorrent.

    Some ISP's also block torrent traffic (p2p traffic)

    I currently have Verizon DSL. What ISPs are not too difficult to use if you plan to download torrents?

    I don't believe Verizon tends to give people grief.

    If you go to canyouseeme.org, does it show the port you're using as open? If so, you just have to find faster torrents.
