    You only need to do port forwarding in case your current port has conflict with another computer or you are using an old router. Most modern routers today doesn't have any problem with P2P applications.

    You can find a brief explanation here

    Portforwarding is used to open a particular port for a particular application, wherein your router allows you to received incoming request using the particular port.

    In a more technical explanation. Our router is using Network Address Translation, wherein as you can see we have the so called Wide Area Network IP, this IP serves as your identity on the world, or more commonly known as our public IP, it could be shared or not, this will be based on your providers, the only thing that makes our connection unique is our physical address on your router, which is used by our provider. Naturally ports are close except for some particular port such as web, this is to secure clients, and being implemented on NAT under the so called network access privileges particularly on incoming request, portforward is then used to open this blocked ports, portforward can give special privileges for incomings with a particular port from a particular Private Address (the next level to Public Address), this port from a private address will then be opened to the world, using your particular Public address and physical address (router)(needed due to gate sharing for residential subs)). With advance routing, the router will then direct all the incoming request to the opened port to your particular private address. With NAT it will recognize this privilege then work it out with advance routing.

    Kung may correction pakisabi ng maayos, don't use obscene words.

    If your router supports it, turn on UPnP. Then use a torrent client which also supports UPnP (i.e. uTorrent or BitTorrent) and enable the same.

    Router mo at App na ang mag-uusap kung ano ports na gagamitin nila. You can also test from within the torrent client kung ok na yung auto-portforward niya to the router.
