If anyone here uses Outpost Firewall Pro & Windows Live Messenger, pls help me with this problem. I don't realli know whether it is the problem of outpost firewall or WLM, but if i log on to wlm long enuff, surely there will be some popups from Outpost which asks whether to allow a certain port for wlm. why isit that wlm is accessing so mani ports that i now have a long list of custom rules for wlm???!!!
Dunno, but one port should be enough. I have a router (blocks all ports) and I can still use WLM.
The problem is that Outpost frequently pops up, requesting to allow a random port for WLM, so i dont realli noe whether it is the fault of the firewall or WLM.
You can go preference by press f2 and add the wlm to a list of apps that always trust and allows it to start any
hidden processes so that you never prompt to allow or deny net access. But aware that it will allow virus and / or
spyware the freedom to access the global net.
Hope this Help,
