Windows Vista-Unblocking Ports?
Hey guys,

Having a bit of a problem. Here's the situation:

My Internet works just great, so does my wireless printing, and so on. So,
my problem is when I game on Halo: Combat Evolved. See, when I try and host a
server, no one can join. This is because (software problem) ports 2302 and
2303 are being blocked. I have tried everything, I MEAN everything. I have
tried disabling all my firewalls (Windows Firewall, Windows Defender, and
Windows Live OneCare). I am connecting through a router but I know for sure
that is not the problem. I have another computer in the house not having the
same problem, it is on Windows XP. This computer (on Halo) use to run
great...before the upgrade to Windows Vista Business Edition. I guess my
problem here is that I need to somehow unblock the port in Windows Vista. Can
you guys please help me with this?

Thanks for all your help in advance!
Paul Rosenthal

I believe you got the help you needed in the other newsgroup you posted this
question in. When you need help, please pick just one newsgroup to post
your question in and wait a bit for replies so you don't get answers (some
good, some horrible) spread all over the place.
