Not a thorough check, but my father did turn off the firewall system on that linksys router. I believe he checked some box that basically opened up everything. I'm expecting that it's more likely what someone else said earlier that the ISP may be blocking it. I say this for two reasons: 1) When a connection attempt is made, the error I get is a time out not a refusal to connect. No pun intended but that smells, or should I say sniffs, of a firewall. 2) On a different system that I help build here in Boise, I'm getting the same problem when we set it up at my friends house.
