Question about Routers
I have just moved into a new flat with a new internet service provider (x-net). I use the voice chat program Ventrilo on a daily basis, using the IP 184.108.40.206 and the port 3997. With my new internet service provider I cannot connect to port 3997. I attempted to connect to this channel using my flatmate's computer and it did not work, so i know it is not a problem with my computer. I successfully connected to another server that Ventrilo provides, so i know it is not a problem with the program. I ran a tracer prgram and was sucessfully able to connect to the sever, but when i ran a telnet to attempt to connect to the server and the port, i could not do so. I contacted my ISP and told them of my problem and they say that it is not an issue on their side as they do not block this port. They suggested it is an issue with the modem or router. I do not know how to solve this problem, I am extremely frustrated and at my wit's end. Does anyone know why I cannot connect to this port, and what I need to do to be able to connect to it?
I would first try to connect to other ventrilo servers on other ports. Make sure it's not your vent program. Next I would make sure you are not having issue with your windows firewall or a third-party firewall (Symantec/Norton/McAfee etc). Disable them temporarily to test. Because you can not connect via telnet tells me something is blocking your port. How about the router/firewall? Is it new? If so, try replacing it with a known good one.

The following computer resources are required to restablish the networking experiences. First, a computer that has modern features preferably least without malfunctions. For example, complementary resources that makes the experince acheiveable includes having external computer speakers to capture and out put sound that may be communicated by members on the establishment. Also, the computer woould require a microphone to make possible voice messenger communcations. Recent computer networking innovations makes possible audio transmittion also known as voice telecommuncations that only is achievable a microphone as input device. Internet networking communcatios makes possible video conferencing only requiring for the cameras known as webcams to be attached to the computer. Acquriing from retail computer network cameras may have builtin voice recorders. Circumpectively, the hardware required to complement the computer prior to establishing messanging telecommuncations in sum are output speakers, input microphones, display capture cameras or webcameras attainable at retail. The following are networking resources required to setup the messenger. First, the computer has to have an internet connection to allow several computers that require communcitions to capture simi;ar signals. For example, internet service providers like at&t, verizon, t-mobile provides the most expedited connectivities between computers that require media transfers either as with messanger systems. Consulting with the most effective networking providers guarantees the fastest, relaible and safest networks to achieve mesanger services. Once the computer has an internet working connectivity to capture available computers within the vicinity areas either at home or office or elsewhere, the prorgam installations becomes possible. Usually the internet require a browser that allows to message between computers. For example, www.msn.com has the internet browser called internet explorer. Once displayed on the computer screen, the user searches with the spaces on the browser by typing msn messanger request to download on the computer messanger programs. The messenger program has to be dowloaded onto the computer that has the feature buttons to teleconference or telecommuncate. Prior to acquring messenger programs, contact a known person that has similar computer structures to establish the messenger program. Opon completion of the messenger download on the computer. The interneted signals are required by several persons with similar features. However, the first person to message usuing the messanger program would be the person that was informed to expect to log on their site to wait messages since a setup was underway. Assuming that several persons already have messanger services on the internet services provider that has been provided like at&t, t-mobile or version. Once the msn messenger were downloaded on the computer. The new structure has to be navigatored usually cliking the search for members or contacts to become friends or messanger buddies. Usually, persons on the mesanger network may not necessarily know each other. However, send messeges to contacts on the network requesting to become consigns. Once a membership request has been send, a wait until reply that makes assurance that commucations on friendly level would become achievable. A send messege to chat buddy on the messenger receiving a reply provide the green light to store the contact as consign for regular telecommucations. Usually the networking experince is more acheiveable when every person has cameras, voice microphones, and has computer compartibilties to prevent message impediments. Remember that the internet is a dynamic experiecne requiring hardwares, softwares, time schedules, and an exploration computer habit to achieve excitabilities. Goodluck and have fun with the experince.
