If you're using a firewall that is based on iptables (usually most of the default firewalls in Linux), you'll need to add a rule that opens your BT port. You'll need to do this as root.

1) Check the rules in place:
# iptables -L -v
will list nearly all the rules except for those in tables like "nat". Those don't matter for BT.

2) Find the file that loads the rules at boot. On RedHat/Fedora-flavored systems, this is the file /etc/sysconfig/iptables. I don't know where this file resides in Ubuntu, but I'm sure someone else here can help.

3) Add these two rules somewhere in the list of rules before the last rule which is usually a default deny rule:
Code:
/sbin/iptables -A INPUT -p tcp -d your.external.ip.address --dport your.bt.port -j ACCEPT
/sbin/iptables -A OUTPUT -p tcp -d 0/0 --dport your.bt.port -j ACCEPT
The latter rule may not be necessary if the default OUTPUT policy is ACCEPT.

If you are behind a router, your.external.ip.address is the address that talks to the router; it could be a 192.168.x.y type of address. If you trust your router, you can just disable firewalling on the machines behind it, then you won't have these problems at all.

It was firestarter, but it was having problems starting up as it is anyways. Not to mention that I didn't find it very useful, so I simply uninstalled it.

You can also give a try to Transmission. Works better than ktorrent anyway.

Does any BT variant work well without the right holes poked in the firewall

I'll stick with Azureus. It's doing extremely well in the Linux environment just like it did in MacOS X. I'm most familiar with it, other than uTorrent, anyways. Thanks everyone for the help.
