    I have a game called Starsiege (If any of you have Tribes, Starsiege is based on the same engine so the same thing should apply).

    I am also using a software firewall - Zone Alarm
    I am giving Starsiege both internet and server access, however, the chat in the game does not work. I am hoping there is some way I can figure out how to give it access. I was thinking of trying a "sniffer" program, but I don't know any good free ones to use.

    I think the best and easiest way to do this is use a program called active ports

    If the chat is inbuilt ALT - Tab and run Active ports , then open that port up and all should work

    hopefully :)

    Hey Kevin,

    I play Tribes, but don't have zone alarm.

    I use Tiny Firewall. It has received some good reviews, and I have no problems with Tribes.

    Hope this helps ya! :)
