Default Bittorrent Port Forwarding

I have a Belkin router and I am trying to forward the ports so i can use Bittorrent. I understand how to go to virtual servers and enter the inbound ports....the ip address, but i dont know what to put for the private ports. Any help would be appreciated.

Hmm ...
I don't know much about setting up a proxy server but private ports can be anything, just don't put them on the public ports such as port 80 and so on

I think so but i am not certain so i will need someone to make sure
Its kind of like telneting people on command prompt, you just select a port and then place it after the command if you want
