When I was connecting to the computer on my network (two PCs) from my MBP and it asked for a password, I left the field blank and just hit enter. Try that.

It should be able to be left blank. If not, see if you can get your router's config settings and look up the password. Good luck!

Set up port forwarding with a number like 50,000 and then set the port as 50,000 in Azureus, or whatever P2P software you use.
