    Question Firewall question

    I have now finnaly set up my firewall but i can't send files with msn messenger so I was wondering does anyone know wich port the messenger uses for file sendings? And how I'm supposed to set this up? It may or may not be relevant that I'm runnig Osx. I've tried an google seaerch but probably had the wrong search opptions or something because i didn't come upp with any information I hope this is in the right forum.

    Thanks beforehand

    Yes, you can visit www.pcflank.com and in the list to your left you will see a link for firewall rulesets, just click it and you may search for things like MSN messanger excetra.. they will tell you all the ports and protocols to use.

    Also while you are trying to send a file do a "netstat" command and see which posrts is used with msn messenger ( somehow difficult but may help )

    cheers
