Finding out firewall settings

by tysonmathews In reply to Finding out firewall sett ...

ICQ uses port 4000 and most Admins shut down that port. I know you can go into preferences and change the port. To check what your Network Proxy settings are use the following

With Netscape:
Edit > Prefrences > Advanced > Proxy
If set to noeproxy then you may make it thru like on some networks. If set to use proxy try with out (see if you can pull a web page then ) but if set to use Proxy then select view settings and you will see what ports are open. Chances are you can place your ICQ on port 80. Of course I do not know if ICQ will run on that port. You will notice your ICQ server and then :4000 well change that. That is the ports.

If using IE or not!
Start > Settings > Control Panel > Internet Options > Connections Tab > LAN Settings button > and from there you can view your settings.

Good luck!
