FS Internet Problems after upgrading to XP from ME

Recommended Posts

Hi All,Upgraded last night from ME to XP corporate and changed file system from FAT32 to NTFS !!No problems, infact improved FS performance all round, except when trying to open Mulitplayer Session?Opened FS ok? set up and connected to multiplayer session in the usual format, when trying to open Squawk Box, It could not locate my session. I have completed this procedure many many times previously, but cannot figure the problem out now?I am aware that XP has its own 'Firewall' option, But I beleive I have disconnected this feature. (I used to use Zone Alarm, which worked fine) and enabled me to access the Internet through Multiplayer. (I am in the process of downloading the ZA XP compatable version today).If anybody has any suggestions on how to resolve this minor but irratating problem, I would be much appreciated.RegardsPHILFS2002 Pro - PIC767 PSSAirbus DF737Packard Bell 1.5 ghz64 mb Creative Graphics Card256 mb RAM

The only thing I can think of is the XP Firewall. Maybe doublecheck and make sure that the XP built-in firewall isn't active???Apart from that it sounds like a mystery... all I know is I had exactly the same problem as this when my firewalling was active.Simon.

Are you entering 127.0.0.1 in the pop-up box? This allows Squawkbox to find your FS session.
