hellow.

I have some big problem. been running up and down looking for a solution in vain.

My computer is connected to a Lan Network. ie I share my internet connection with another pc using a cable between the 2 network cards. Computer A is connected to the Internet via a dsl modem. everything works ok since I have attributed static ip address for my pc. so I have 192.168.0.1 for the first pc and 192.168.0.2 for my pc.

Now here is my question. How do I do to open ports on my pc? I have a program that requires me to open a port. I have tried through the windows firewall by adding an exception but still no port seem to open. do i need to do something on Computer A? is port forwarding necessary here?

NB. On computer A, all ports are Open.

Bith Pc's run Windows xp sp3 with Eset NOD32 antivirus (though I have disabled them)

Someone pls help me. its a li urgent cuz i have been on thi sfor almost amonth but nothing seem to go my way :(

It would help if we knew what kind of network the primary computer is connected to. :)

What is the make and model of the modem?
It may not work to have the ports open to both computers.

Let's see this from the machine connected directly to that modem.

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD to open a command prompt:

In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following command:

Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

IPCONFIG /ALL

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter to copy the contents to the clipboard.
Paste the results in a message here.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

Did you try disabling the firewall on the host computer?

There must be some other application running on at least one of them that's causing the issue. If you run the application on the one connected to the USB modem, does it work there?
