I am a novice with networks and i have been having a little trouble playing everquest. I talked to them and they told me this is what i need to do. I'm using a cable modem connected to Win 98 SE machine, I'm using its built in proxy server.
Problem: My network runs Firewall/Proxy software, what "ports" need to be opened by my Network Administrator?

Solution: Let your Network Administrator (or whoever set up the network) know the following information:

Patch Application:
A TCP connection is initiated from the player's PC (arbitrary port>=1024) to patch.everquest.com, port 7000.

EverQuest client:
UDP datagrams are sent to/from the player's PC (arbitrary port>=1024) from/to chat.everquest.com port 5999.

UDP datagrams are sent to/from the player's PC (arbitrary port>=1024) from/to one of the everquest servers (arbitrary port>=1024).

The EverQuest server ip addresses are on the subnets: 208.236.12.* , 63.65.235.* , 192.215.54.*, 192.215.37.* and 192.215.33.*

Any help would be greatly apreciated.
