79                                <li>If you don't use a router, that is, your modem is directly connected to your computer, you'll need to open Transmission's port in the Mac OS X firewall. For instructions <a href="pffirewall.html">click here</a>.<br>

81                                <b>NB:</b> it is highly recommended you enable the Mac OS X firewall if you are not using a router.</li>

84
85                        <p>Keep in mind that many DSL modems also function as routers, and hence port forwarding as per above may still be necessary, even though your computer is directly connected to the modem.
