Torrent clients perform best if they can use a port which is reachable 
from outside.  it can be any port whatsoever, as the port your client is 
using is announced via the trackers. 

some torrent clients seem to require a different port for each torrent, 
while others can handle multiple torrents concurrently with a single 
port.  my favorite client is the MS Windows only uTorrent, 2nd favorite 
is the portable java based Azureus.
