Smile port forwarding

Excuse my ignorance, but where in the Limewire interface does one go to "push" the IP address. I am downloading successfully but not having anyone uploads, and I assume it is because of my router and my Windows XP Home firewall. When I used Shareaza there was a place in the tools menu under connection options to enter the numbers. For instance, I had to tell Shareaza what my router's IP address was and what port to use for inbound requests. I told my firewall to allow that same address and port through. I forwarded that port through my router to my own computer (one of three in our home netword) and had many uploads right away. Where do I tell my Limewire software these things? Is it because I'm using the free version?
