Hey guys, I don't know much about ports and whatnot so my networking vocabulary is very limited. I just have a quick question about bypassing the firewall of my Linksys router for certain programs. In AOL instant messanger, I can only direct connect and share files with a select few of my friends online. None of my friends that are behind firewalls at college can direct connect with me. They can direct connect with others, so obviously the problem is on my part of the connection. So does anyone know how to set the ports or something so that I can use AIM to it's fullest? Thanks in advance for any help.
