Aim and Direct Connect

I've been using AIM to direct connect with friends to "share" stuff. Sometimes I can't connect to people (always the same people). I can connect if I disable XP's firewall. My question is how do I find out what port to tell AIM to use?

if u go to aim preference and then to file sharing and file transfers u can specify the port to use in there

You can assign whatever port you wish. Your port decision does not affect the other end of the transfer. I would recommend you use anything above 1024.
