Hello guys, im just a newbie and have also (for you) a very simple question. I'm working behind a windows XP network (sharing the internet). At my computer (client) I have also windows XP. The problem is that I cannot send files with messenger or set up my own website using IIS. I know it could be by forwarding ports (I don't care about the server if he is able to sent files or anything). But HOW could I forward ports in Windows XP and how do I know what te ports are voor a web server or messenger. Please help me !!!!!!! I get sick of this!!! I hope I could forward ports in Windows XP, but when it isn't possible to forward ports in Windows XP how do I intergrated a router in Windows XP???
