    Lightbulb Need help on how to set a rule from TPF

    I'm new to using tiny personal firewall. I set up some new rules. It seems to be working very well except for one thing. I enjoy playing on line at www.pogo.com. however now when the playing rooms load up, I get this error messege telling me im un able to connect to there server. which leads me to my question. how do you set up a rule to accept the above web site.

    Because you got a message from the game and not from Tiny, I suspect a rule you already have is what blocked some message or ping from the game server. Otherwise, Tiny would have asked permission for you to send, or for you to receive. I suggest you find out what the game uses to setup a connection. Also, you might check your rules with the intention of finding one that might apply. For example, if you block pings with a rule, and pings are required, then you need a higher up rule allowing pings for that specific IP address, or range of addresses.

    thanks for the help. I just set my browser to accept any port. All is well now.
