Just got bellsouth dsl. I cant use it with winmx. When installing the auto config for winmx it tells me i cant receive TCP of UDP packets. How do I get rid of any software installed firewalls or are there ports that i need to open up? If its ports, how do i do that? I'm used to cable, so I'm a bit lost. :mrsgreen:

This might be a long shot, but some ISPs block certain ports on their client systems (yours) from sending or receiving. This is usually done to prevent people from running webservers from their homes, as well as, in some cases, block the file sharing apps like Kazaa, Morpheus, WinMX, etc. Maybe this is the problem, cos if you can access the internet from that computer, you're receiving TCP/IP just fine.
