I was asking specifically about the web interface... did you have to
open up a port on your router/firewall to the ktorrent machine for
it's web interface? Or did you check the box to let UPnP handle that?
I checked the box in the Ktorrent Settings dialogue (this has nothing to
do with the web interface, it's just for normal BT use).
I don't normally run web services on this machine so I also used
system-config-firewall to open a specific TCP port, and configured that
same port in the router (a Belkin) to allow HTTP in. This means
specificing that port instead of 80 when browsing from the Web of
course. I also set a strong password.
