    My company block ports on my PC using windows 2000 and I cannot login to MSN messenger.
    Can PE open ports 1253. I tried the evaluation copy and was unable to open the port.
    Can you help, before I purchase the software.

    No this is not possible, Port Explorer is PC specific and cannot and should not override your company's security settings.

    Your company has blocked ports for a reason, if you think that this wrong then I would advise you to contact your IT Admin who will advise further of your company's policy regarding these ports.

    You may also find that you would be breaching your employment contract by trying to or achieving your override to the official settings.

    There might have been a misunderstanding of what PE is all about, which is to allow you to see all the connections and ports on your system, including which processes are using which ports, and which remote computers are connected to your system. It allows you to close established connections, gives you the ability to prevent a process or socket from sending and/or receiving data, and even allows you to spy on the data being sent and received, but like Phili mentioned not to open closed ports by your sys admin.
