    Thanks, hehe....

    then now this is my problem.

    What should i really do to make my MSN messenger function properly without being affected by the firewall which is shipped with XP pro?

    I read a lot about this things but everytime they just ask me to set port 6891 bla bla bla, but you know, I don't know anything about ports so.......can anyone of you help?




    is it possible for you to tell me what to key in in each and every one of these empty space?

    p.s. I asked the first question because i thought i want to open a port with the ip address of my internet connection and not my home network. hope you all get what i mean.

    Disable the firewall that comes with XP and use one such as Zone Alarm.

    This is much more reliable, user friendly and functions better.
