14                        <p>In this case, it is probably OK to disable the OS X firewall, as you are already being protected by the router. To disable the firewall, open System Prefs >> Sharing >> Firewall. Click Stop.

17                                <ol>
18                                        <li>Find out what your IP address is. You can find your computer's IP address by going to System Prefs >> Network, double-clicking on your connection (for instance, Built-in Ethernet), and clicking the TCP/IP tab. It's probably something like 192.168.1.100, or 10.0.1.2.</li>
19                                        <li>Open Transmission, go to preferences, and enter a number for the port. It is recommended you pick a random number between 49152 and 65535. Let's use 50001 for now. Then quit Transmission.</li>
20                                        <li>Go into your router configuration screen. Normally this is done via your web browser using the address <a href="http://192.168.0.1">192.168.0.1</a> etc.
21                                        <br>NB: Apple's Airport uses an application called 'Airport Admin Utility' to configure it.</li>
22                                        <li>Find the port forwarding (sometimes called port mapping) screen. While the page will be different for each router generally you will enter something similar to the following:</li>

25                                                        <li>For 'Application' type 'Trans'. </li>
26                                                        <li>For 'Start Port' and 'End port' type 50001. </li>
27                                                        <li>For Protocol, choose Both. </li>
28                                                        <li>For IP address, type in your IP address you found in Step 1. </li>
29                                                        <li>Check Enable. </li>
30                                                        <li>Click save settings. </li>
31                                                </ul>
32                                </ol>
33                        <p>For more comprehensive instructions specific to your router, click <a href="http://www.portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/routerindex.htm">here</a> and choose your router from the list.
