FC6 linux router / server with win XP client cannot connect to LimeWire (p2p)

Hi everybody,

I have a FC 6 server that works like a router / firewall for my network and I'm trying to connect to LimeWire from a Win XP client that get's its internet trough it.

Here is my current iptables conf file
# Firewall configuration written by system-config-securitylevel
# Manual customization of this file is not recommended.
:RH-Firewall-1-INPUT - [0:0]
-A INPUT -j RH-Firewall-1-INPUT
-A FORWARD -j RH-Firewall-1-INPUT
-A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -i lo -j ACCEPT
-A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -p icmp --icmp-type any -j ACCEPT
-A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -p 50 -j ACCEPT
-A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -p 51 -j ACCEPT
-A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -p udp --dport 5353 -d -j ACCEPT
-A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -p udp -m udp --dport 631 -j ACCEPT
-A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -p tcp -m tcp --dport 631 -j ACCEPT
-A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -m state --state ESTABLISHED,RELATED -j ACCEPT
-A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -s -p tcp -m multiport --dports 53,443,80 -j ACCEPT
-A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -s -p udp --dport 53 -j ACCEPT
-A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -m state --state NEW -m tcp -p tcp --dport 22 -j ACCEPT
-A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -m state --state NEW -m tcp -p tcp --dport 80 -j ACCEPT
-A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -m state --state NEW -m tcp -p tcp --dport 5800 -j ACCEPT
-A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -m state --state NEW -m tcp -p tcp --dport 5900 -j ACCEPT
-A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -m state --state NEW -m tcp -p tcp --dport 26108 -j ACCEPT
-A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -j REJECT --reject-with icmp-host-prohibited
Thanks in advance for any advice in solving this,

you would need to check limewire and enable the ports that it uses in your firewall. search for the ports that it uses on google and allow'em to pass through.

Well this is the problem... I thought I did that with this line...

-A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -m state --state NEW -m tcp -p tcp --dport 26108 -j ACCEPT
Limewire uses the port 26108.

But it is not working. What could be the problem?
