BitTorrent Client that works with NAT firewall

I was using BitCommit on windows. Now that i am moving to linux i need a bit torrent client that can work from behind a NAT Firewall.
BitCommit works perfectly (reasonaly good upload and download speeds) even from behind a NAT firewall without requiring any configuration on the router (since i have no control over router.. i am sharing internet connection via wi-fi with someone else). However, bitcommit is only for windows.. Is there any bitorrent client for linux that can go around a NAT Firewall????
i-e that would work without requiring configurations on router???
thnx for the help

i think azureus works with NAT, nice and feature rich client, though it does need java.
