    Icq problem

    hello...
    I have some problem... I bought a new hardware - modem router and it has a firewall.....(origo ADSL Router Model: ASR-8400)

    now I have many problems to send and accepts files in ICQ.
    anyone know which ports do I need to open that Icq won't do me problems?

    thanks.....

    Hello,

    Now I don't know your type of modem out of hand but here is what ICQ has to say about configuring it to be able to use it behind a firewall.

    I also don't know what OS your running ...maybe it's the firewall of the OS itself that is the problem ..like the firewall from Win XP with SP2 .

    Lot's of possibilities ... hope this helps a bit .

    Back when I was a boy, we carved our own IC's out of wood.

    Dear Guss

    In this Article they tell's us to open all ports between 1024-65535
    and this isn't seems to me... because if we open all those ports, we actually disable our firewall (I think).....

    Just keep reading on that same page. The solution to your problem is described, and a link is provided to this page: http://www.icq.com/icqtour/firewall/other.html#noprox
    It tells you how to configure ICQ to work with limited portrange.
