    Hi all,

    Just wondering, should I open ports in my firewall/router for steam?

    I don't run steam servers, or don't play online games.

    Just wondering if it's worth while.

    Thanks

    I used steam on my Windows box without opening any ports just fine. :) I wouldn't even open yourself up like that unless you were having issues.

    Kinda figured, but asked to make sure.

    Thanks
