Hello there

I am having problems with my port settings. I am running windows xp and when i play a game online and try to create a game it says 'Please ensure that any firewall software you are running allows incoming connection on port 6112.'
How do i go about doing this? I tried to turn off my firewall in windows but still the same problem. I also have this problem on my ICQ (instant messenger) that it wont let me recieve files as it says my port settings wont allow them. Any ideas on how do i solve this problem?

many thanks!!

Try typing your port 6112 in here and there ask it to probe the port, it will tell you if the port is blocked or not:
