    I use utorrent, my computer is physically connected to my router and the utorrent ports are forwarded to me. The guy I live with connected wirelessly with his laptop, but he also uses utorrent and obviously the ports can't be forwarded to both computers.

    So my question is, do torrents use specific ports, or does the range of ports used vary between different clients? Just wondering if he could start using bitcomet or something, and then get the ports forwarded to his IP.

    I think utorrent picks a a random port to use when it is first installed. You can also change it in the preferences. I dont know if that is the only important port though.
