[Q] help with android iptables


Im not 100percent sure that my question is related to android, but i think it is..

I have an android phone (zte blade). And i use mobile internet on it.
I have a Desktop with windows operating system. The desktop is connected to internet by only one means which is my android phone through Wifi hotspot.

I have Vuze(Azureus) installed on windows. The problem is Vuze never gets the incoming tcp / udp ports opened i think. The torrent stays on yellow mark all the time. If i make a NAT/Firewall test from vuze it reports an error saying connection is refused.

I checked out windows firewall and it allows vuze. I even turned off the windows firewall and the NAT/Firewall test still shows error.

So, the possible issues are EITHER my ISP has restricted the ports OR my android phone is blocking the ports (iptables). Im using Cyanogenmod7.2-recent nightly and it has iptables (i checked through terminal emulator)

And vuze website lists the ISPs that block the ports, and mine is not in their list. So the only issue i think is with my android iptables.

I scanned for opened ports with an android app. The vuze specific port is not open, but i think the scan is for the android os, and may or maynot be same for windows depending on how the Wifi hotspot works.

And i request your help only regarding android issue.

-- Is the android phone acting as router when we use wifi hotspot to share its internet.
-- Is my PC getting direct access to internet or is it going through the iptables of android.
-- how to deal with ports with iptables on android phone. Please give me commands or an easy way.
