Being behind a router is being behind a hardware firewall. Thats why it says firewall. You will need to alter your router settings and open the correct port/s to resolve that conflict. However, I am not a fan of p2p networking, and would not know what port/s you'll need to open up.

This site should help:


It will give you instructions for your router, and what ports you need to open up. However, be careful; I don't go on P2P networks anymore, because I got viruses when I opened up certain ports.
