First - check to make sure shorewall is indeed blocking:

sudo shorewall clear

sudo iptables -L

If iptables comes back empty (no rules), try your torrent and make
sure it's working.  If it works, then you do:

sudo shorewall restart

and BT no longer works, then you can be sure shorewall is the culprit.
 If it is - I'm not sure I can help you much further - I've not set up
BT w/shorewall before...  Hopefully someone here has, or you might try
asking on the shorewall list.
