I'm on the edge of pulling all my hair out. I can't seem to figure out how to get some of my firewalled ports working properlly. Mainly, the one that annoys me the most is AIM Image connecting. When AIM 'direct connects' it allows users to send pictures back and forth to one another, as well as other files, sounds, zips, etc. My problem isn't that I can't get the Image direct connection to work, but that I can't get it to work properly.

I can almost always directly connect with somebody but THEY have to initiate the connection. If I attempt to connect then it times out and whines about a firewall. If they connect it works instantly. This isn't just for one person either, but for practically everybody I meet. And it's so annoying having to explain to people where the dang button for direction connections are.

As far as I understand AIM uses port 4443 for this, and I have both the TCP and UDP protocalls open. I am utterly confused.

Yeah I can log on to the router, and I have opened the ports. Well it calls it forwarding, but anyway, I did it...but it still does the same dumb stuff.
