    1) Forward the port(s) you are using in your Torrent app to your PC's local IP address using your router's configuration tool
    2) Make sure any software firewalls (such as Windows Firewall) are not blocking the port(s) you may need
    3) ????
    4) Profit

    Type in your default gateway's (router) address in your web browser (usually 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1). You'll be prompted for a username/password.
