My son wants to play World of Warcraft. We had LOTS of trouble getting the WoW Downloader to do its thing, but finally succeeded (took about 6 hours to complete). The trouble shooting guide for the downloader stated that we were open holes in our firewalls ( I have Windows and Kaspersky running), as well as my router. The directions ask you to open roughly 120 ports to allow proper game play and patching. Is this actually necessary? Isn't this quite an opening for potential threats? Does anyone have any experience they can share with the number of ports actually necessary to open to allow proper game play?
Thanks.
