Bittorrent, Kazaa, Morpheus etc... use pinging as people connect to you to download stuff as well as you ping someone to search for a file, and when that file tries to send to you it cannot because your firewall is locking it out...
the best thing to do, is either
a: get a router so you dont need a firewall, because the router auto configures such things.
b: simply enable bittorrent the max level of privledge on your firewall, in other words allow its ports.
Also make sure your windows xp firewall is off. You dont need more than 1 firewall, and if you already have a router you are hooked up to, get rid of your firewalls... Nothing is better than a router and you definetly dont need both.
