link. Then click the Edit
Set the Security
level slider to Maximum or Medium. I prefer Maximum, because Medium allows file and printer sharing to be used by someone on the internet. Click the Program Control

Find Yahoo Messenger Voice Chat in the list of applications displayed on this page, and click it to highlight it. Then click the Edit

radio button. Then enter the ports to allow in to the Specified Ports
box. These ports can be entered in a list like 50,52,53 a range like 500-600 or a combination of both like 50,52,53,500-600. The IP Setting Type drop down box should be set to All IP Addresses
. Click the Ok button to save the rule.
Click the Ok
button all the way back to the main menu. It's very important to note, that if Yahoo Messenger Voice Chat tries to communcate on a port that you did not specify you will get another popup box asking to allow or deny that traffic. If you click allow, this firewall will create two new rules that will allow all traffic for Yahoo Messenger Voice Chat. The newly created rules will overide the specific rules that you created. Be absolutely sure you know what the program is doing before clicking that allow button.That should be it. The firewall should be properly configured.
To test if your port has been properly opened, you can use our Port Checker tool.
