Is my transmission bittorrent config correct?

I have just set up the transmission bittorrent client on my server (using the web interface), and am trying to get the port forwarding right.

After noticing low download speeds (and rare uploading), I decided to check if a port needed to be forwarded.

I found many conflicting sites, mentioning both the ranges 6881-6999 and the port 51413 (as well as TCP and UDP versus just TCP).

My current configuration is to forward TCP and UDP port 51413 to my server.

Is this correct?

Thank you for any help.

I have only
 $IPT -A tcp_inbound -p TCP -s 0/0 --destination-port 51413 -j ACCEPT
No problems with speed.

Kind regards
