Zone.com requires that the following TCP ports be open to sign in, chat, or connect to game rooms or lobbies:

80
443
6667
28800-29100

Also you need a direct connection with gaming server. ByPass the Web proxy server.

Surely if you are using the Firewall client, these ports will be opened dynamically, and playing on the Zone will not be a problem.
Do you mean bypass the web proxy by not specifying the Lan setings in IE?

I read the same KB article (Q159031), but I have two followup questions.

1. How do you get a direct connection? I've tried disabling the firewall client and changing my browser settings. Nada.

2. How do I get ports 28800-29100 open? Do I need to create a new protocol for each port between 28800 and 29100? I've tried using 28800 as primary and the other as secondary with no luck.

Some of our users were able to access the MSN zone site to play online games but now, for whatever reason, they couldn't.

However, we were able to get them going by just enabling them as a Firewall clients.

That is what I thought. The firewall client should take care of it all.
I suspect that the problem could be with the Zone, your ISP and latency! Perhaps?

On one user, I installed the Firewall client and left the Proxy settings (Servername/Port8080) alone as it was in IE. I was able to connect to the zone.msn.com but when I tried to play the game, it kept saying "loading...". Any ideas?

One more thing to add:

Once I removed the Proxy Server settings/Port8080 in IE, it worked.

I got rid of the proxy settings as well, but it made no difference.

Hi,

I, too, was unable to access the Games Zone with
the FW Client and the WebProxy:8080 set in IE.
I, then reformat my hard-drive and re-install
the FW Client, and now, I can't get connected
to the Zone Server. The ISA Server did not change
during this time. Anyone have any problems
connecting lately?

I am having issues like this also and I have the same question Michael did -

" 2. How do I get ports 28800-29100 open? Do I need to create a new protocol for each port between 28800 and 29100? I've tried using 28800 as primary and the other as secondary with no luck. "
How do you open a range of ports like that?

Ok - I am answering my own question - I found a article here that explains how to open the port ranges.
Here is a link -
