Messenger PORTS for Firewall - Can not send files !!!

Post by Robi » Thu, 22 Jul 2004 19:17:02


Hallom could someone maybe tell me what the port numbers
are that Messenger uses so that my ISP cam open them.
Messenger chat's fine, by can not send and receive files
or app sharing etc...according to Telkom, my iSP, it is
standard protocol to block these type of things, but if I
provide them with port numbers, they can open them !!!
