My sister has Yahoo Messanger, Windows XP Home. She is saying that when she does a file transfer she gets a message that she is behind firewall. She does have a D-Link router. Does anyone know the port that needs to be opened to allow her to send?

No luck....

I went there and opened the ports that the site has said for yahoo, I still have the same problem.

You have to disable the XP firewall...Go to Control Panel...Network and Internet Connections...right-click on the internet connection, go to properties...go to "Advanced" tab, and make sure the the firewall option is UNCHECKED.

Just thought of another thing, you might have to be the DMZ/Trusted Host on the router.

Since you have a router I also assume that you have either a DSL or cable modem. To verify that the problem is within the router try connecting the computer directly to the modem and see if the file transfers are successful when you bypass the router. If the file transfers are successful then you do at least know that the problem is with the router configuration.

Sad to say... I have a dial-up modem hooked up to router... I know, I know... Issues with Comcast have delayed the roll out here for cable internet. Should be here any day now. I will take your suggestion and plug modem into computer and try that. I never even thought about that.

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
