    The port is closed ;-) Check with the Firewall in Mac OS X and open the port Transmission wants you to open. Firewall is in Systempreferences->Security->Firewall. If you run a router betwenn the Mac and the Internet make sure to open the port there aswell.

    There are three radio-buttons, hit the last one offering to grant access for services and programms. Then hit the tiny + sign in the lower section of the window, select Transmission and via pulldown to allow incoming connections.

    In Transmission goto "Preferences->Network" and check the listening port. A red dot indicates that it is blocked. Make sure the port is open on your router.
