    hi, i am using a hub + winrouter pro (software) to share my cable modem connection. however my friends' pc are not directly connected to the internet so they r unable to use icq phone to talk directly with others, where i can do it on my pc. is there any way or settings i can do so that they can use icq phone to talk directly to others outside the network?

    thanks~ :)

    Mapping through the correct port(s) in their routing software or router.

    the problem is that i dunno how to map them... for example, my pc (server) has 2 IP, 20x.xxx.xx.xx and 192.168.0.1, where 20x is for cable modem, 192 is for LAN. when i tried to do port mapping, it's asking the following details:

    Protocal: TCP/UDP etc (i should use TCP only or TCP/UDP?)
    Listen IP: well, i guess 20x in this case, am i right?
    Listen port: single port, but i dunno what port icqphone is using
    Destination ip: supposed to be my friend's pc ip in LAN right? for example 192.168.0.88
    Destination port: er... i dunno too
    Allow access only from: dunno....

    and let say listen port is using default icq phone port, that means i am not able to use it when my friend is using?

    again, thanks for any help~~~ ;)

    Protocol: Depends on what the application uses.
    Listen IP: The 20x, right
    Listen port: Find it out :)
    Destination ip: Friends IP, yes.
    Destination port: Same as listen port.
    Allow access only from: Everywhere? Just leave it blank if you can.

    You may not be able to use ICQ phone, no. But I'm not sure. I think you can set ICQ to only use specific ports (say 2300-2500 or something). Then you could port map those through and hope that it will work (no guarantees! ;)).
