Speed test help please

How can I configure Norton Internet Security to allow the Speed test thro' . What address included or ports must be open inbound /outbound and which protocol.
Any suggestions or help would be appreciated.

The test fron ADSLguide gets thro' but Plus Test is firewalled.
Router Netgear 834GT NATS firewall on.

Best use another speedtester or dump Norton as its rated very low these days & seems to be a system hog also & it causes more problems than it solves

Plusnets tester always seems erattic to me

Heres a good speedtester http://www.speedtest.bbmax.co.uk/

When I was still using Norton I checked into this and it wasn't A question of ports it was that Norton objected to the content of the file downloaded by the PlusNet speed tester.
If you want to see if this still applies pause the Norton protection then restart it again half way through the test.
