I have internet...but my applications wont connect
« on: November 15, 2006, 08:04:00 PM »
Alright, I'm having a small problem with this computer my friend left for me to try and fix, and honestly im stumped, it can connect to the net through my LAN, and I can surf the internet with IE or firefox,  but none of his apps can connect! Any messenger, Game [world of warcraft in this case] or anything else simply cant connect, why? I've checked my router settings, added necessary ports, I disabled all the firewalls just to see if it would work, nothing. I've updated the network driver and everything, Am I over looking something or what?

Try telnetting to the ports in question; eg:
telnet your.computer.ip 3403

Only able to visit the forums sporadically, sorry.
