    Does anyone know what ports are used by Windows Messenger for PC to PC voice conversations? I need to know which ports to have forwarded to my main PC. I'm actually, not sure exacly how messenger gets text chat too all of the machines on the router either, but somehow it does..... I will be happy if just the main PC can have voice forwarded to it. Any info would be appreciated.

    Thank you,
    Brian

    Set your router to forward the following ports:

    Voice: 6901

    File Transfer: 6891-6900
