Windows Messenger 5.0

I have a solwise 110 router which was working fine until I enabled the firewall. Now windows messenger drops off such that contacts think you have signed out. Is there a setting on the firewall which will overcome this. Please advise anyone who can help. Thanks

Hi,
I dont know the precise answer to your problem but have done a quick search on this issue and found that there is a known issue with messenger & firewalls, take a look at one of the following link for details of which ports are involved:- hope one of them will be of use.
