Where Are The Port Settings For Messenger?

#1
Ok I am fed up with messenger already!!!

I have done all the research and looked for solutions for my problem.....

I CAN SEND whatever I file I want to others via messenger and also do remote assistance, but I CANNOT RECEIVE ANY FILES OR REMOTE ASSISTANCE.

I have disabled the firewall so I dont think thats it.
I dont know where the port settings are that I need to change to resolve this. Also are there any policy or registry settings I may have screwed up??

I am the administrator on my personal PC.

It is driving me crazy.

HELP.....please?

Check the firewall again just in case.

To disable XP firewall, go to network connection properties (Control panel->Network Connections->Right click on the connection, select properties; or simply right click on My Network Places, and select properties), advanced, and uncheck protect my computer box.

Also, make sure your adsl modem is not playing tricks with you as to blocking the ports, there are some that do it.

One more suggestion - get a good software firewall, that has logging enabled, and check the logs, after you trying to do something. I personally would recommend a 30-day trial Zone Alarm Pro, it has all the features you miught need to trouble shoot this. If the logs show nothing, then you have some problem with your connection, it might be your ISP, modem or even something else, which I can't really think about off the top of my head.

But try those solutions, maybe some will lead you to the right way

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
