Port forwarding problems with SP2

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?QW5keSBU?=, Mar 28, 2005.

  1. I have the following setup:
    Desktop PC (WinXP Pro sp2) connected to USB ADSL modem.
    Laptop PC (WinXP Pro sp2) connected to desktop PC using 802.11g card.

    The laptop runs a Java chat app and a remote partner app has to connect to
    its port 8080. How do I set up the firewalls to allow this port to get
    through to the laptop. I've tried other applications which use a similar
    setup, tried a file-sharing app with autosetup of firewall to see if it would
    show me the correct setting, but I couldn't figure it out. I'm using the
    default XP Firewall on all connections.

    Thanks in advance,
    Andy

  2. Replying to my own post for thread completeness:

    Found solution, had to change advanced firewall setting for usb adsl modem
    firewall. It seems having port open in firewall for all users is not enough,
    I had to explicitly open for laptop.
