Zone Alarm keeps notifing me that the btdownloadgui.exe (shad0w client) is constantly trying to access port 80 which is reserved for the Web server and port 6873. I was not aware that bit torrent used these ports typically, from my understanding ports 6881-6999 were used. Should I be concerned?

Ports 6881+ are normally used, but clients can be configured to use any port range. Some people use port 80 because it's the only port that hasn't been blocked.

These alerts are outgoing and my Shad0w bit torrent client is configured for the default ports (in preferences) 6881-6999. Is there another way to configure these ports?

These aren't ports your client has open; these are ports OTHER clients are running BitTorrent on, which your client has received data for via the tracker and which your client is trying to connect to. BitTorrent has a default port range, but people can -- and do -- choose other port ranges, for various reasons.
