port forwarding question
 
Newbie here, got a question.

I have a 2Wire modem/router and want to setup port forwarding so I can use bittorent. 2 other computers share the connection, and the users also want to use bittorent. Would it be ok/good to forward the same port for all 3 computers to use on their respective bittorent app?

If you have to forward ports, change the ports the clients use and forward the 3 different ones to each computer that uses the port.

no, you cannot forward the same ports back to multiple computers....why would you want to do that anyways? do you have the firewall turned on? if so why not just turn on NAT then let it take care of it for you?
