Having read all the posts regarding Java Chat in Gaydar, I am still no further forward. Like everyone else, if I turn off ZA, I can access Java Chat with no trouble, but obviously this is not a safe option.
In the Gaydar Chat Help section, they do suggest "
If you have a firewall, make sure that port 8000 is open. Otherwise try disabling the firewall and connecting." So I guess my question is, How do I make sure this port is open (In simple mans terms PLEASE!) and is this a safe option?
Any help with this would be greatly appreciated. This has been an on going problem of mine for some time and quite frankly, it's doing my head in:manmad:
Thanks in advance

Operating System:
Windows XP Pro
