Windows XP SP2 – Blocks some ports – some applications may not work!

After you install Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2), some programs may seem not to work. By default, Windows Firewall is enabled and blocks unsolicited connections to your computer. This article discusses how to make an exception and enable a program to run by adding it to the list of exceptions. This procedure permits the program to work as it did before the service pack was installed.

This is a good KB article I found which details the issues with Applications. You will learn about how to identify Ports and PID’s here.

This link is a must for me, since I am using Win XP SP2.
