I think you are missing the fact that limewire does not use dedicated 
port numbers. Every session uses different port numbers and the remote 
computers come in on different hight port numbers. Limewire starts off 
with a proto igmp  multicast packet to the limewire master server where 
all the other users online computers are listed.

Really need someone who has firewall rule for limewire using ipf or pf 
to share their knowledge.
