      how does it work

      I was going to set up uTorrent but I know that you need to forward a port for it.

      Does anybody know if I'm likely to encounter any problems with Sky or their router when I do this?

      I'm a bit wary cos a friend of mine knackered up his Sky router when he went to do something like this.

      Thanks

      Port forwarding is not anything which should knacker your router! It may seem a bit long winded at first but it really is quite straight forward.
