First, stop, close your eyes, breathe in and out, and r-e-l-a-x.

Second, try a torrent from OpenOffice to see what happens.

If your settings in hardware and software allow incoming connections you will see your status icon go green. If not, you need to start diagnosing where the problem lies.

Also when reporting additional information, speaking in complete sentences and avoiding extra "!" is preferred.

The OOo torrent doesn't do a thing to your settings. It tells anyone trying to help you where the problem lies. This is due to the fact that the OOo is a small (~ 100 MB) file by torrenting standards AND that the peers they seed it with are unfirewalled (you will be able to connect irregardless if YOU yourself are firewalled).

PLEASE note if you are behind a hardware firewall (router) with default BLOCK all AND accept rules a software firewall is doing nothing more but encumbering your computer experience. Also note the Incompatible Software list of programs and similar programs which will interfere with uTorrent's ability to function properly.

The green checkmark will only happen when you are not running a firewall (not advised) OR when the firewall is configured properly. The second link under Ultima's How-To give examples posted by users. If you're using a router Portforward.com has extensive lists of guides (µTorrent is even in every list I checked - under 'U').

THOSE procedures will hopefully change your status icon from the exclamation to the checkmark. After you change your firewall settings, feel free to check with the OpenOffice torrent again :D
