What you want to do is "open ports" in your firewall. This is simple if you have admin access to your router. Find the section for "port forwarding" and add ports that your game require. Typically, there is a TCP port and a UDP port. The UDP is for broadcasting type messages to/from your fellow gamers. The TCP port is usually for the game server. Check with your game instructions -- or you can probably get the answer with a google search string of "game ports Asherons Call" and I would bet it will give you exactly the settings for your router.
Here ya go (I did the google search). It appears that it only requres the UDP port. I would open all of these unless you find out more detail that you can close some ports (never leave a port open that you don't know or don't need -- it is a hackers door to your computer).

I don't know if you were receiving this error for the same reason I was. I had just purchased a new LCD Flat Panel display and the game absolutely hated the monitor. The resolution I had set for the previous monitor was apparently causing the error that prompted the "/safe" parameter message. Since support dragged their butts in offering a solution, I ended up seeking out help elsewhere online and found this website: http://www.widescreengamingforum.com/wiki/index.php/Main_Page
They deal in solutions for playing a wide variety of games that may not have any support for widescreen.
They offered a most simple solution. The safe meesage appears to come up because the game does not like starting in the resolution you have the game set at.
Their fix is simple. Scrap the "/safe" command that the game is asking you to use.
Go into the game data folder and find the file DATA/ufo-et.ini and then edit the height and width parameters to a lower resolution OR if you are in fact using a widescreen monitor edit the resolution to the default resolution the screen runs best at and then resave the file. Restart the game and the "/safe" message should go away. Worked like a charm for me.
Let me know if this helps
