There are actually several places I'd have to take the tinsnips to in
order to cut a bittorrent sized hole into here. 
Theres the router in addition to iptables to deal with.

I've actually  made several passes at it, but the relative lack of
error reporting cripples me in that its a failure, but totally silent
when I try to start a tracker. No traffic goes out that I can see.
My 'outside' dsl address is  I don't think you'll see
anything there but a closed identd port.  I've logged 3 attempts at
getting into the firewall machine in 3 years, and two of them came
from compromised verizon dns servers.  I send vz a nastygram, and I
lose my primary dns for a few hours the next day while they re-image
their winderz box again...  Sigh.

Cheers, Gene
