You really shouldn't be turning off your firewall, especially if you're using a P2P service. Instead, find out what ports the P2P client needs to use and open those up (or there's probably a netfilter module that you can install that will track the connections and allow them for you).

I used Gnutella on a Linux box before, behind a firewall, and there were no problems.

So now it is safe to assume the firewall is not the problem, if it still cannot connect with the firewall down. I suggest turning the firewall back on, and enabling logging to help you figure out where your connection breaks.
