Setting security

Hi Marlene,
Yahoo games use TCP Port 11999 for communication.
Case 1: (If the security settings on the router is blocking)
Kindly forward this TCP port number 11999 on your router to your computer's private ip address.

Case 2: (If the personal firewall in your computer is blocking)
Kindly check the documentation of your personal firewall how to define exception for this traffic.

Note: If you could provide more information of your router and the environment, I would be able to assist you more.

Kindly rate this answer if it is helpful.

The company I work for is using WEBSENSE and I cannot access yahoo messenger. I do not want to enter chat rooms, but only keep the yahoo messenger opened while I am working and receive im from my buddy...

i fthe computer do not allow you to access the yahoo messenger try to stay on line on the web version of the yahoo messenger ..This is just a web page and I think they do not thought to restrict it ..
Here is the log in page ..
(it is about the same and even allow to keep archives ...its just a little simplified ..)
By the way ..the reason you can not log from the computer directly probably cause you do not have an administrator account ..and the program is firewall-ed or something like that ..
Good luck !

I cannot sign in to my yahoo messenger now. why?

make sure you have an internet connection. try opening a website.
if you cannot log in to yahoo messenger what error are you getting?
if password error check your password and user name
in yahoo messenger you don't have to type in the in the username and the password try to type it in the notepad to check if you typed the correct password.
copy that password then paste it in the password box.
check for your antivirus and firewall setting maybe it is stopping your yahoo messenger from connecting the internet.
also try uninstalling and reinstalling your yahoo messenger. try downloading the latest version
if still don't get any luck logging in.
try to log in to the web base yahoo messenger

Im using yahoo messenger 11 and couldn't log in. i follow the trouble shoot instruction and its been 2 days now, still cant sign in to yahoo.

If you have a personal firewall turned on, temporarily disable it and try again. If still not working, you may need to enable either UPnP support in your router, or setup a virtual server in your router to let the IP address and port of IM to get through. Most consumer grade routers explain their respective process in the user guide..

Cant login in yahoo.messenger

Well, there may be multiple reasons for this,

1- May be you are providing incorrect log in information.
2- May be Internet is properly working, or some firewall issue.

Please check these things.

Yahoo messenger cannot log in

sounds like a port problem on the non functioning laptop. does it connect to yahoo when on a different network? try turning off your firewall or checking the settings on your router. just google your router model and you will find out how to access it. I would also run the network setup wizard and see if that clears it up. It could be cache or anything. run a full test at and see what it says

I have a wireless router on the ATT Yahoo dsl network and the modem provided by ATT needed to be bridged to allow the router to handle the PPP logon responsibilities. If this may be your issue I can help you work through it. In my case the ATT Yahoo rep I got after switching my service was very helpful in this regard.
