Need to Open Ports (help?)
Hey all - I need to pry open all my ports on my WinXP Pro boxes.. I'm writing an analysis paper on BO2K (I'll share afterward!) and want to watch how it works, etc., in real time across the network.
(Don't worry, I'm on my own LAN at home, not connected to the wild, wild Internet)
I've got my firewall down, but every scanner I use says my ports are closed (except for the usual 137-139, 443 and 5000). Am I missing something here? I just need to bare my TCP and UDP ports to my network for a short while.
Any suggestions much appreciated..
