Users behind NAT isn't a Fedora problem. They need to port forward the
BT ports - but that can go on something like fedorafaq.org (or whatever
it is).

Firewall is a problem. A nice gui like firestarter (not necessarily
firestarter, but something like it) for configuring the Fedora Firewall
would be nice - with common app/port selections so users don't
necessarily have to care what port ranges are used for what (unless they
want to meddle with the defaults)

until I decided to go with Linksys for my router, firestarter is what I
used for NAT - it has a really nice interface for controlling what ports
are allowed in etc.
