Welcome! And thanks.

It is nontrivial to detect whether a port is forwarded or not, especially as 
some symmetric firewalls etc have long timeouts.

W.r.t. dropped packets ... if you have a low MTU and a firewall that drops 
fragmented packets, this can be bad for Freenet. What is your MTU?

20 is indeed the upper limit at the moment. More is not always better. Darknet 
nodes are unlikely to have more than 20, this was part of the thinking.

You need to set the addresses to listen on as well.

Any user who has access to FCP.

Known problem, sorry... will release a build at some point in the near future 
which we believe fixes it, at which point we will need to know if it hasn't 
been fixed.
