I'm trying to change the settings on my router so that I can Direct Connect with people online/AIM I have the port on AIM set at 5190 and I changed it on the router settings too, but it still won't let me? Is that the right port setting for both or is there something else I need to do? Thanks

might want to try to setup dmz port forwarding will send all the packets your router gets first to a ip address. you will have to trun off dhcp for this to work correctly but not to hard to setup and should work just fine. btw what kinda of router do you have?
