Did you try one of the other servers. They message you see is created by Squawkbox and not the network, its just there to give you some ideas on why it happened

Yup the firewall in WinXp is bad fro multi-palyer games. Try ZoneAlarms that have a good one, just make sure you don't get version 5 its got a bug they are working on.

From what I have seen Symantec firewall is just as bad as the WinXP one. Its not very multi-player game friendly. ZoneAlarm makes a good freeware firewall that works fine with Vatsim and all the software you'll need.

Hi, I agree Kerio is good and zone alarm but I would'nt touch Norton Products at all the only good thing they do is win docter most of them are realy problematic.Daz
