If you need further help on forwarding ports, I recommend you consult
the manual for your router.

There is no way to communicate directly with your opennet peers.  Your
node is connected to them, and routing requests for them (and vice
versa), but that doesn't mean all that much.  If you want to talk to
people, I suggest using an app like Frost, FMS, or Freetalk.  Think of
Freenet like a giant game of Telephone (
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Telephone_%28game%29 ) or Six Degrees of
Kevin Bacon ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Six_Degrees_of_Kevin_Bacon
).  Your node sends and receives messages, but who it sends them to or
receives them from is only peripherally related to where they came
from or where they're going.  So don't worry about who your opennet
peers are; they're just semi-random people who use Freenet.
