Thanks,but i am using Windows XP sp3 and i have windows firewall and NOD32 running on my PC,does it have to do any thing with ports ?

If there is can you tell me what to do about it,cause when i try to run the server,i have to specify a port,what do i do for that !

And is my IP going to remain the same when i restart the PC,cause i need a Static IP so people can add my IP to there favorites.

thankyou in advance for your reply.
