Oh, yeah.  I've got that covered.  I've opened up the ports:

   EXTERN_TCP_PORT7="0/0 6881"
   EXTERN_TCP_PORT8="0/0 6882"
   EXTERN_TCP_PORT9="0/0 6883"
   EXTERN_TCP_PORT10="0/0 6884"
   EXTERN_TCP_PORT11="0/0 6885"
   EXTERN_TCP_PORT12="0/0 6886"
   EXTERN_TCP_PORT13="0/0 6887"
   EXTERN_TCP_PORT14="0/0 6888"
   EXTERN_TCP_PORT15="0/0 6889"

and forwarded them:

   tcp_${EXTERN_IP}_6881_192.168.0.2_6881 \
   tcp_${EXTERN_IP}_6882_192.168.0.2_6882 \
   tcp_${EXTERN_IP}_6883_192.168.0.2_6883 \
   tcp_${EXTERN_IP}_6884_192.168.0.2_6884 \
   tcp_${EXTERN_IP}_6885_192.168.0.2_6885 \
   tcp_${EXTERN_IP}_6886_192.168.0.2_6886 \
   tcp_${EXTERN_IP}_6887_192.168.0.2_6887 \
   tcp_${EXTERN_IP}_6888_192.168.0.2_6888 \
   tcp_${EXTERN_IP}_6889_192.168.0.2_6889 \

I've gotten really good dl speeds before.  I've seen 120KB/s on very good
torrents before.  But this one is wierd.  only .7KB/s when my sharing ratio
is 3.7?

That's just _wrong_!!!!    :-(
