intelligent iptables gui's


I've been watching the iptables threads, hoping I'd find some clues as 
to how to go about carving a hole a few port numbers wide for 
bittorrents use.

As I also have an external router, a linksys BESFR41, I'd probably 
have to setup something in it also, and that seems fairly clear, but 
I've never been able to get a torrent going through it.  My iptables 
rules ATM are fairly bulletptoof, (you cannot see me from the 
internet other than a closed identd port) so my question is this:

Do any of these iptables gui front ends have a preset option to output 
a pre-canned ruleset that will pass the torrent, but still maintain a 
reasonable level of security outside this open port range that the 
torrent needs?

Cheers, Gene
