MSN Mess = Video No / Win Mess = Video Yes

I have a Linksys BEFW11S4 ver 4 with the latest firmware and UPnP enabled.
When I attempt a video conference with Windows Messenger 5 to a MSN
Messenger 6 user it works fine. If I try a video conference with MSN
Messenger 6 to a MSN Messenger 6 user, it fails after attempting to
connnect. If I put the computer in the router's DMZ MSN Mess works fine. I
looks like MSN Mess is not opening the proper ports but Windows Mess is.

Does anyone have any thoughts?


1. MSN Mess will hook up on Video but not on Audio, WHY?

2. Win Mess/video conv/ worky together?!

I use Windows Messenger 5.0.0482 for video conversations.
I use Win XP SP2 Firewall. Whenever the firewall is
active, the video does not work on pc. When I turn it
off, then the video works. I have Win.Mess. set to
exemption in firewall settings.

What port would I open to ensure success?
Do I have to close this port after video session is
Can I use ZoneAlarm free version instead? How?

3. upgrade to Win XP SP2 blocks my voice conversation on msn mess
