Determining inbound vs outbound

Looking at the output of netstat, I'm not seeing a definitive way to tell which torrent connections are clients reaching in to my machine vs my machine reaching out to the world.

Is there a clear way to determine which is which?

The port number should be the differentiator. netstat -n to show numbers
