    I have a broadband router (SMC Barricade 7004VBR), it works great, but the sucky part is that some programs won't connect properly.

    Like one example, MSN Messenger's file transfer and video/voice chat. I read on SMC's website that no matter what it wont work, so i've stopped trying. I've tried to set my PC to a DMZ zone, but to no avail.

    Today my brother downloaded a game called SUBSPACE, but it wont connect... i also suspect its the router. I found no port information for this game on google.

    I was wondering if theres a program that monitors ports to see what ports are being used and what programs are using them

    Thanks - Nick

    What OS are you running? If it's Win2000, XP, or something UNIX like, you'll already have a command-line program called 'netstat.' It has what you're looking for.

    Otherwise, try using google to find a TCP port monitor.
