Perculiar port blocking

I have two computers networked. One has ICS (internet connection sharing) so that the other can access the internet. No worries so far as both can access the net ok. The problem occurs when I try to run a game (ravenshield), it uses a couple of perculiar ports to register the player for multiplayer games. Both computers have xp with sp2 and symantec client security. I have disabled windows and symantec firewalls to try and get this to work. The computer that is NOT running ICS connects fine everytime, the computer that IS running ics cannot login to the game service. The ICS machine is a newly built machine that really has no special setup. Ijust don't understand how any ports can be being blocked (or forwarded to other machine)?

Hope someone can help me, I spent a bit of money on a new machine and can't get my favourite game working properly.
