ICQ/games and firewall
Posted on 1998-11-08
I use to connect to ICQ fine and same went for gaming sites such as Battle.NET , but few months ago my ICQ started
dying on me (not connecting to the ICQ server)
I re-installed it, but that didnt help either instead i lost my registration on ICQ , I tryed logging in but ICQ kept telling me that I have to set my firewall settings
(I connect through USF and I guess they have a firewall)
Well the problem is I dont know what kind of firewall they have to mess with settings, and i cant EVEN connect to ICQ to SEE what settings they are looking for.
Regarding gaming sites, they just tell me that my connection is too poor to play and/or Im not processing UDP
I heard about software that allows you to send UDBs through firewalls but i wasnt able to find anything of sort.
Any help would be appreciated.
