Thanks -- so, how does one unblock router ports?
I'm presently getting nothing on Blitz but a gray screen and the "Blitz Beta provisional help" box explaining the need to update Macromedia Flash (done) and also noting that "Port 1935 must be open."
I've tried intoning "Open Sesame" to my laptop, but without effect. "Open Port 1935" didn't work either.
It depends on what make of router you have. Generally, you need to go to your router homepage.
To get the address go to Start > Run. Then type in cmd
hit enter, then in black box that appears type ipconfig
. Then copy the IP address listed under Default Gateway and type it into an internet browser - it should be something like - http://192.168.1.254
If it asks you to login, try the username admin
and a blank password as they're usually the default details. If that doesn't work you'll need to speak to your ISP or check the documentation that came with you router.
Once you're logged in look around for the Firewall settings and there should be an option to open ports there.
