The firewall may be configured with YaST2 in the security section.
But I have a better idea, why don't you try running the p2p on linux. Since it is the pc that is connected directly to the net you will not have any problems forwardint ports.

The linux client is aMule http://www.amule.org/
there is an easy SuSE installer, so you should have no problems, just open the 4662 TCP and 4672 UDP ports in the firewall.

Best Regards

I think you are doing something wrong with YaST, I have used SuSE for about half a year and had no problems. You need to enter the ports space separated like 4662 4672 and the firewall will open the ports.

And if you don't want to use aMule use mldonkey. I got speeds 20 kB/s per file with lowID (however that really depends on the files you download). It connects to 10 networks simultaneously and can download the same fies from these networks.

the site is www.mldonkey.org. you should download the compiled binaries, because if you download the srcs you will need to install a lot of crap to compile it(like objective calm for example).

Hope this helps.
