thanks for the fast reply...i'm going to look for these messages.
but i don't really understand the problem. even if netmeeting uses
different ports, it must work i assume, when i forward the traffic
of *all* ports from the caller's ip to my pc behind the fireall.
(this is what my rules do: forward all traffic from a specified ip
execept data on port 80)
or does netmeeting use other protocols than tcp or udp which i
also have to forward ??
