Ports to Open When Using a Firewall or Proxy Server







If you are using a Firewall or Proxy Server to connect to the Internet, you will need to open specific Ports to play all games on MSN Games.




Most work, school, and public computers connect to the Internet through a Firewall or Proxy Server. You may also have a Firewall if you have a Broadband (Cable or DSL) connection on a private computer.








To play games on MSN Games while using a Firewall or Proxy Server, open these TCP Ports:









Internet access; required for all games.









Sign In to Microsoft Account.









Multiplayer games.









Windows XP Pre-Installed Internet Games.












To open these ports, consult the help files for your Firewall software or contact your network administrator or IT technician for assistance.
