I've enabled http-seeding on port 80. Don't know for sure if this works
and/or helpt anything, but since this port is probably the only one open to
the outside at our university it might work. For incoming connections my
client is set to the random port number 21815 which is likely blocked and
outside of my permission to allow open.

I use Azureus in WinXP for practical reasons, FWIW. Torrents are for me
something of a hocus-pocus thing. Either it works or not...
