Default Ports...

Is there a way to use different ports instead of the defaults? I think my router is blocking any port over 400, which means my AIM or anything that uses a port above that does not work. Is there a way to "re-port" your ports to diffferent ports so it will work?

Any help would be appreciated.

Go in and configure your firewall to allow it. And no without recoding aim lol your not going to change its port configuration.

Yeah, try changing the ports on your router. If that doesn't work try changing the settings in the firewall. I'm pretty sure you can only change the ports on your router though.
