    I didnt change any ports however I did a steam test and it said that my ports were ok, how would I go about changing these ports if it was required? I really appreciate your help =]

    you need to review the firewall documentation for specific syntax,
    but the concept is shown in the last post, steam-1/2 are just lables for
    readability and you're forwarding a range of ports using xxx-yyy
