This tutorial is basic but can resolve some problems with blocked ports.

I'll explain using UFW.

Open Terminal and follow these commands (I will use a port example):

sudo ufw enable

If you get a message that UFW is not installed, type this command:

sudo apt-get install ufw

And now:

sudo ufw status

At this moment your UFW is ON

To open your port, it is very easy. Open your torrent software and copy your port.
Now, type this command:

sudo ufw allow 1234/tcp

sudo ufw allow 1234/udp

If you want to block any port, just change ''allow'' to ''deny''.

Don't forget to change ''1234'' to your port that you are using in your torrent software.
