Re: open messenger ports

Here ya go: To use the configuration utility embedded within your Motorola WiFi Router, you need to connect to it using the HTTP protocol. Launch a web browser (Internet Explorer, Opera, Firefox, or Netscape, etc.) on your computer, type in (default IP address for its LAN/NIC Interface) in its URL/Location bar, and then press Enter on your keyboard. If presented with a user authentication (login) screen, try the following: Default Motorola Wireless Router Username: admin (lowercase) Default Motorola Wireless Router Password: motorola (lowercase) If you cannot login using the above, it may be so because (a) you are not typing your password correctly, (b) your CAPSLOCK key is on, (c) someone has changed password on your wireless router, and/or (d) the firmware (a set of instructions stored on an EEPROM microchip) encoded within your wireless router is corrupted. Consider resetting your router to its factory default settings if you are stuck.

Need to unblock a firewall to pick up net flix wireless on my new visio tv how do you do this. it was something like a 80 443 code

80 and 443 are the port numbers,

80 is the default for internet
443 is the default for Secure Socket Layer Internet

There will be an option in your firewall settings of the router
You should be able to forward the exact ports you need to allow them to work
Don't however open all ports as this will leave your computer open to attack

You can assign a pre defined application to by pass the firewewall
You probably need to create a new application, call it "Visio TV" for eg and enter ports 80 and 443 and save it

I am trying to install a wireless printer to my lap top and is asking me to make sure the udp port 427 is unblocked for inbound and outbound traffic how do you do that?

On your laptop open the control panel then windows firewall, if you are using windows 7 the first link on left should be allow program or application. You will add an exception rule, name it, specify the port 427 and click ok. Now on to the second part. Open your web browser IE logon to the router, for example linksys is if you don't know what your routers ip is, right click your connection in the tray, click status and advanced and note the IP address of your gateway, this is usually your router or firewall.

Login to the router, find the firewall port forwards tab, specify a name and the port 427 and click save to create the port rule. Now try your setup again.

Msn key ports will not fix!

Dear Friend,
First of all, always check the status of your web browser before signing in to windows hotmail messenger.That means that if you try to sing in, be sure that work offline mode in your browser is not checked.Secondly, have you run the MSN MESSENGER port configuration?Third and most important, have you opened the ports in your firewall?
Here is the list of thee ports that MSN Messenger uses:
1366 MSN Messenger
1367 MSN Messenger
1838 : TCP MSN Messenger (Gamevoice)
1863 : TCP/UDP MSN Messenger primary (incoming)
5190 : UDP MSN Messenger (incoming)
6891 : TCP MSN Messenger Filetransfer (incoming) - ports 6891 - 6900, one port per file transfer
6901 : TCP/UDP MSN Messenger Voice Telephony (incoming)

5004 : UDP MSN Messenger, ports 5004-65535. Used for AUDIO and VIDEO. Caution: securty risc! Do not open ALL these ports!
5004 : UDP MSN messenger (dynamically uses a port in this range 5004 – 65535 - requires uPNP in your NAT router and/or firewall). Used for AUDIO and VIDEO. See Microsoft website for details....

Good Luck!

Remote desktop

there is another part you will need to check. if you did everything for setting the ports on your router. you might not have opened the ports on your firewall in your computer. Under control panel in your computer. go to windows firewall, then exceptions tab and you will see remote assistance and remote desktop. check those on both computer. Hope that works for you

Can't figure out how to open the UDP port number 427

Since both your printer and your desktop are on the LAN side of your router, the hardware firewall isn't really a concern here. I would check the following:

-Make sure the printer is actually connected to the network. If you are having wireless difficulties, and have a wired ethernet port on the printer, try plugging it in rather than going wireless. (If this fixes the problem, you can then concentrate on it being a wireless connectivity issue rather than a firewall issue.)

-If possible, try printing from a different PC on the network. Does it work with that PC? If so, then reinstall the printer on the problem PC, perhaps even clearing out and reinstalling the drivers.

-You may also want to manually assign an IP address to the printer. This address must be within the same "range" as the rest of the network. Since your router is probably assigned, and DHCP auto-assigns your PC, make the printer This way, the printer has the same address every time the PC goes looking for it.

-Make sure you don't have a second firewall on the affected PC. Zone Alarm, Norton Internet Security and many other "all in one" security packages sometimes throw a firewall in there without your knowledge. See if you can "ping" your PC from another computer on the network, and can you "ping" the printer from the problem PC?

Hope this helps!

Firewall and limewire

Dear ckclee,
Just uninstall your new limewire and restart your computer. try to re-install the old version of your "work-fine-Limewire". If it doesn't work, the only way is go to start menu, browse the accessories, carefully choose "SYSTEM RESTORE". when it runnng.. pick the date which your computer work best, the restart it, remember... windows can only restore and set back time status not more than a week, according to my experience.
Good Luck

I cannot open ports TCP/UDP for eMule using router 2Wire Infinitu

You need to portforward your router to accept emules port number/numbers. Go to look up your router and follow the instructions. It's pretty easy.

You might try removing any firewalls that might be installed such as Norton. I have seen Norton, as well as other firewalls, get corrupted and cause problems like this. If that is the case, try starting Windows in safe mode with networking and see if you still have the problem. If not, it is a firewall issue.
