Select a port in the preferences section. then use your routers config page to port forward that port to the system's IP. Usualy uPnP takes care of this. Does your system get no torrents without the port forward?

I don't suggest you broadcast illegal activities in a public domain, not smart at all.

Looks like your router is a cheap thing and doesn't supoprt upnp, you will most likely need the port forwarded (or if you can find how to enable upnp, then do that)

ooh my word i have the upnp support but something is wrong but anyway i apologise for the broadcast will try to delete it IF that can be done. i'm new to this and thought it could be done. thanks will try to get help from this side.

Transmission is a tool for authorized file sharing. Do not use it for piracy.

There may also be legal issues with giving technical support to a user who has demonstrated an intent to commit piracy. IMO this question needs to be closed.
