Hi Folks,

I need some help please.

I have a 3M/512k cable ADSL service from UPC in The Netherlands (Phone and TV also) and I use an Airport Express to create the wireless network that my Imac (and PowerBook) uses to connect to the Internet.
I have been running Vuze for about 2 months now as my Bittorrent client, and I notice that all my downloads/uploads are accompanied by a yellow smiley face - Vuze tells me that this is because I have NAT problems...
When I perform a NAT/Firewall test from Vuze, I get the following response:
"Testing port 59962 ...
NAT Error - Connection to (your computer) refused."

Investigation on various forums leads me to conclude that I need to do Port Forwarding in order to solve these issues and get proper download speeds for my torrents - and this is where I need help.

I don't know how to proceed. I'll note here some information which I think may be useful, but please feel free to ask for anything else that I may have missed.

In Vuze, the incoming TCP listening port is 59962, and the UDP listening port is the same. UPnP is checked enabled. Thats all I can think of really...

As you can probably gather from the question, I am not very computer/network savvy, so please if possible, answer in easy step-by-step details that the average two year old can follow

Thanks in advance and all the best
