The above reasoning holds for me, that if bittorrent gets throught the
router then azureus should also get through the router...?

Azureus reports:

Testing port 6881 ... NAT Error

I am not entirely sure if the standard bittorrent application even does the NAT tests that Azureus does so it may be a case of Azureus giving you more info. In the end, both will run behind a NAT router and they will download but your download rate will suffer in most cases since a lot of bittorrent clients that cannot connect to your client directly will decrease their upload rate to you. That is a consequence of not being able to do port forwarding on a router that you don't control.
