How do you open ports on a win 2000 machine with IE as a browser?

I need to open ports 8570 and 8571.

Thanks

I don't get what would be stopping ports on win2000, it doesnt have any built-in firewalls. What firewall are you trying to configure?

Lmao I configured one of those yesterday...

Ok open the router config page : the password's admin (unless you changed it ) and there is no username

go to "Applications and Programs" in the top selections (well somehting like that I dont remember exactly what it says.)

it's gonna give you a big table with the options to put port addresses... now, these are port RANGES.. if you have many ports, open them from the lowest number to the highest. if its only 1 port write both start and end range as the port you want to open. the only other 2 things to do after this is to do the ENABLE checkbox, and put in the IP address of the computer you want to open it on. after that, save the change, and it works, usually :whistling:
