Just switch from Vuze/Azureus to Ktorrent and have 2 questions

I finally made the switch and surprisingly I love Ktorrent. I just have 2 general questions fro certain features in Ktorrent.

1. How can I tell if I'm being firewalled?
I know how to port forward been using bt for several years and sometimes my router assigns different IP addresses sometimes. Only way I can tell is it only effects me is when I start a bt download and I have to change the address in setup. Vuze had a red circle and those smiley faces and just wondering if Ktorrent had something similar cause I couldn't find anything.

2. How can I see my total share ratio?
I can see the single ratio fore each individual torrent but I don't see a total ratio.

Besides those 2 issues I love using ktorrent. Sure Vuze looks pretty but I don't download any of those other things on there. Only thing I will miss is the friends list and able to get more seed speed from them.

I'm pretty sure that ktorrent has a similar icon to Vuze. It's been a while since I paid attention to that. I don't think that ktorrent will show you the total ratio (although I could be wrong and always am according to my gf).
