bittorrent iptables help

hi i'm having a problem with setting up a bittorrent server
i create torrents using createtorrent
and setup my tracker with bittorrent
bittorrent clients can see the tracker
but they don't download anything

if i turn i turn iptables off everything works fine, so i need help configuring it.

current configuration for bittorrent ports:
-A INPUT -p tcp -m state --state NEW -m tcp --dport 6881:6886 -j ACCEPT

i have no clue on how to configure OUTPUT or if i need fowarding...

thanks for your help
