I am having a problem with Transmission at school. It says the port is closed, for whatever port i use. I get around a max of 20kb right now with some very-few seeded items. I sometimes get around 100-200kb but never more. Is having the port closed a bad thing? and how would I fix this if it is?

It's likely that your school uses a firewall, and in order for you to do Bittorrent, you'd have to have the school's network administrator turn on port forwarding for TCP & UDP ports 6881-6889. I believe Transmission also requires that TCP port 51413 be forwarded.
It's unlikely that those ports will be opened, but just in case they happen to be you may want to try to set your Mac's own firewall to allow Transmission to send and receive connections (System Preferences => Security => Firewall tab => + (select Transmission) and allow all incoming connections.Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
