hello all, i had a few problems on XP sp2 with the firewall. I found that using these commands i can open and close the ports. Can only get this to work when installed as a service tho.
netsh firewall show state pause netsh firewall add portopening TCP 80 MyWebPort pause netsh firewall delete portopening TCP 80 pause netsh firewall show state pause

those are probably real commands for windows. it does not have anything to do with our server. whether or not the port is open on ur pc is up to you and not for the program to keep secure. ports are open for public sites so outside source can see them.
