AIM uses port 5190 to connect to the AIM Server, but it uses port 1965 for Direct Connections...

Unfortunately you can't. I don't know any windows firewall program that allows you to do this. But maybe I haven't looked hard enough.

speaking of firewalls i dont think its zone alarm(my firewall) thats blocking the port off since it always asks for connections to be made, i run windows xp and i heard somewhere it comes with a built in firewall, is that true and if it is anyone know how(if) i can alter it to except those connections

I do not believe that Windows XP actually has its own specific firewall........

Yea it dose. That was part of the big stink about it coming out. I do not have XP only played with it a few minutes. Might wana search google for XP vs AOL problems. Might find a solution that way.

Yeah, XP does come with a firewall, but by default it's not on. Unless you installed it and turned it on, that should not be a problem.

ZoneAlarm DOES let you configure what you want to have open or close.

A box will pop up asking "Do you want so-and-so program to act as a server?"
[Yes] [No]
[X] Dont show this again

heh
ZoneAlarm will let you not/allow these 3 things,
1) Accept Connections - let outside connections in
2) Connect to internet - self explanitory
3) Act as server - blocks people from accessing that port

Why not get into DOS? Its not difficult to learn and it will save you time in the future instead of having to ask other people questions you can find out for yourself.

Ill teach you how to find out the port number of any server you connect to.
Open a DOS prompt, type in: netstat
look at the output and decipher it.

It shouldn't be too hard to figure out which connection is the quake server if you know the server name or IP it will be even easier. Apply process of elimination techniques and shut down all other connections that you have and it should be the only one there. If you know the IP of the host use: netstat -n, it will give you numerical output. For more assistance using netstat type: netstat -?
Learn how to learn and teach youself, it will help you more than we ever can.
