    I have been using netmeeting for a few years with only the normal reliability. Recently, the computer that I call to swtiched from a T1 line to a DSL. When this change took place, the other party hooked up a linksys router. I also use a linksys router.

    I call from a from a windows xp pro platform and call a windows 2000 platform. Since the other party hooked up the router, we are unable to connect. After reading a microsoft support document, I did the following forwarding:

    Pass through primary TCP connections on ports 522, 389, 1503, 1720 and 1731.
    Pass through secondary UDP connections on dynamically assigned ports (1024-65535).

    I assume the other party needs to do this as well, or am i missing something?

    we fixed the problem by forwarding the proper pots on the linksys router. The biggest hold up was find the the right ip address for the machines we wanted to have the ports open.

    We found them using start>run>cmd>ipconfig

    we then accessed the router usinf 192.168.1.1 address, hitting advanced> forwarding the forwarding the following :

    tcp: 522,389,1720,1731
    udp: 1024-65565


    One question, as that seems like a great deal of ports have been opened, does the fact that I have zone alarm running protect me from hackers?
