Hi. I'm having a problem chatting using voice on MSN messenger. My DSL connection is linked to a Compex Netpassage 15-D router. Before installing the router I could use voice on MSN messenger but after installing it I couldn't get through. I'm pretty sure I must make some changes to the router's configuration but I have no idea how. I'm just an average guy with an average knowledge on computers. Can anybody please help me with this situation?

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
Zach :)

I've never heard of your router ... but ... you probably need to figure out what port MSN voice is using and find the manual for your router and figure out how to forward the port to your computer.

If your router is like most SOHO routers, it's doing Network Address Translation and NOT forwarding odd ports from the internet to your machine - this is what you need to turn on.

I don't know. I don't use it. I did a little googling and searching on the M$ kb, but didn't come up with anything definitive. You'll have to do the same and use trial and error - unless someone else knows.

Doonz, he has a hobby - conjuring port numbers.

Merlin, only 60,000+ more ports to go, why stop at 300!?!?

(Where'd you get that list?)

ill add my 2 cents

ok, i have myself had problems like this before...

but.


i was only unable to use msn voice with other people on my network.

i was still able to voice with people on the internet.

i also was unable to send files through msn to anyone on my network.

we were using a speedstream router, and were told by the customer support number that we couldnt open more ports.

so i gave up, and we used yahoo! voice after that.
it works lovely even with router firewalls

:no:

Is there anyone who had been successful with configuring their router to enable voice on MSN Messenger? I'm not willing to abandon MSN Messenger since MSN 6.0 looks so cool. I wanna keep trying but I'm still stuck. :upset: I have added this port 6891 - 6901 (thanks Merlin!) to the router's configuration but it still refuses to transfer voice.

I need a miracle. :dead:

dmz

well, i messed around with the virtual dmz that my router came with, and that did in fact allow me to use any and all of the ports iu was having problems with, but this will only work for one of the machines on the router. if their are other people who want to use it from his network, this won't help at all. it's sorta like chopping off the hand, instead of repairing it.

also

6.0 looks cool?

i havent seen it.

i am using 4.5 right now, and i am totally happy with it. it is also the only one that i can get running multpile times. i know that msn tries to get me to update all the time, but i tell it no. personally, i like 1.0 the best, since it has no stupid graphics and garbage like that. anyways, look at this, can 6.0 do this?

"Why would you want 10 messengers running?"

My question exactly. :D

DMZ works huh? How do I configure this? There is a 'Private IP address' in my router's DMZ configuration page. How do I obtain this private IP?

Thanks. I want to try this out.

The "private IP" in the DMZ configuration is the LAN IP address of the machine you want to appear in the DMZ. Note that the DMZ machine has NO protection from the Internet, it's like connecting directly to the broadband modem. You'll want to have firewall protection if you want to run the machine for more than a few days before reloading due to contamination. :D
