I use Windows Messenger for video conversations.
I use Win XP SP2 Firewall, and EZ Firewall.
Whenever they (the firewalls) are active, the video does
not work. When I turn them off, then the video works.
How can I configure the firewalls to allow messenger to
work with video?

XP can be configured to allow Messenger. Go to the Control Panel and Open
the Windows Firewall and click the Exceptions and set to ALLOW.

As for EZ Firewall, I have no idea how to configure.

I've been tryin to work this too. I have winmessenger set
exempt in win firewall, but no video. Turn firewall off,
and it works. What port needs to be opened?

It's been 12 days and nobody reponds to this thread? Were are the MVP's. I
can't get win messenger to work behind win firewall, even with win mess
exempted. I have to turn firewall off. HELP PLEASE! Are there ports to open?
I've search and googled with no answers.

Imry,

Generally speaking, you need to open specific ports for Messenger to
work. But I believe Messenger port range can be quite large, so you end
up opening up most ports - which defeat the purpose for having firewall
in the first place.

BTW - I could not even get my VideoConf to work with XP2 and without
firewall.
