    XP Home edition's built-in firewall

    I have this XP firewall activated and until my Intel videochat program died and an uninstall-reinstall did no good, the firewall would ask (when I called up lntel) if I wanted to allow the ports used by Intel to be open for the duration of the call. Fine...no problem...I just told it "yes" and away I went.

    Now a little freebie videochat program says I must configure my XP firewall to allow the TCP protocol, the incoming port 10529 and the outgoing port 10529, 443, 80.

    But I can find no way to do this with the Intel firewall. Is there or could it be that the program instructions are incorrect?
    I've created my own website...a collection of moving, sad and happy and humorous poems which I would like to share with others. They come from stories my dad used to tell me when I was a kid. If you could glance at my site and if you know of others who might enjoy it and perhaps tell them of it, I would be most appreciative. Thank you.

    You can forward ports by going to Network connections and right clicking on the connection that is firewalled. Click properties. Now go to the Advanced tab and click settings. A new menu should come up and you should be able to forward ports there.

    Hint: use your computer name (ie. "John's Computer) instead of the computer's current IP Address (ie. 128.0.0.1) as that might change every time you start up.
