  1. I was wondering if anyone could show me how to open the following ports-

    * HTTP: 80 (outbound only)
    * HTTPS: 443 (outbound only)
    * TCP: 13500, 28400-28499, 32768-65535 (outbound only)
    * UDP: 1795, 1797 (inbound and outbound)

    Me router is a Zyxel Prestige 600, my OS is Vista Home Premium.
    Any help is appreciated!

    whenever i try and enter the ip of my router (192.168.1.1), i just get a "could not display" message. I'm pretty sure that's the right address, i can ping it. Any thoughts on how to fix this?

    Go to start -> all programs -> accessories -> command prompt

    at the command prompt type exactly ipconfig /all


    use whatever is listed under default gateway

    192.168.1.1 is listed as the default gateway- doesn't work. It's also listed as the DNS server. is that a problem?

    Maybe your router is configured to use HTTPS for administration. Try https://192.168.1.1

    There are two major components to this question:
    1. the router
    2. your software firewall on XP
    The router will default to ALLOW everything in+out (unless is has SPI and you want that blocking anyway)

    Your firewall will default to ALLOW everything outbound and accept nothing inbound (which is a great default).

    This means you only need ONE rule to be added to the firewall for
    UPD 1795 and 1797 in+out.

    Likewise, your router needs to be forward the same ports to the LAN ip address of the system
    (you can only forward to one pc!)
