I need to add port 5060 to a firewall on a PC with Windows ME. I haven't really used ME all that much and searched through the help, but didn't find much...Has anyone done this and can you give me some info?

Thanks!

Usually windows ME does not control ports. Or XP For that matter. What you need to do is connect into your router and open that port, pointing to the IP address of your computer.

There isn't a router in this particular case, it's connected directly to a Motorola 5100 Surfboard modem...

Well, usually if you want to open up ports, it will have to go through a router of some sort. What kind of firewall program are you using?
