    (OT)How do you open ports from your firewall?

    I need to open some ports for my firewall. How do I acess my ports? Thanks.

    The ports are located deep inside your firewall, so you have to smash the hard outside shell with a hammer to get at them.

    Post back here when you complete that step.

          Oh, I didn't realize you were using a software firewall. In that case you have to "punch holes" in the firewall by drilling into your computer case with a 3/8 in. drill bit.

          Don't drill any bigger holes, as that might allow viruses in to your CPU!!!

              Surley, if you're asking FIREWALL questions on a GAMING forum while providing NO USEFUL INFORMATION WHATSOEVER, you can only expect to receive ACCURATE, HELPFUL ADVICE, and not just MEANINGLESS DERISIVE DRIVEL! How could it be otherwise, I asks ya?!

                  Yeah, and better have some bricks to patch it back up when you're done with it.

                            Don't worry everything you need is under "Windows Firewall"

                              Ports only need to be open if you RUN a SERVER. No need if you just want to play the game.
