The computer you intend to run Bittorrent on will need to have a static IP address. Depending on what subnet your router uses (typically 192.168.1.0 or 192.168.0.0), the settings need to be like this:

(let's say for example your router uses the 192.168.0.0 subnet)

IP Address: 192.168.0.20
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 192.168.0.1
Primary DNS: 192.168.0.1

If it uses the 192.168.1.0 subnet, substitute the 0 in the third octet for a 1:

IP Address: 192.168.1.20
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 192.168.1.1
Primary DNS: 192.168.1.1

Then, set port forwarding on your router to forward all Bittorrent traffic to that static IP address.
