hey, sorry if this is an obvious question or already answered, but whenever i search the results dont give me what im looking for ;( So im trying to connect from a internet shared networked computer, from a game which requires some open ports, through the main computer which has ESS, but unfortunately ESS blocks the port! I just wanna ask whether computers (without ESS) which are sharing an internet connection from the main computer which is using ESS, have all their ports automatically closed? Is this a security feature or is my settings wrong? I have set my networks zone to 'Allow Sharing' and the internet is under 'Strict Protection' I also set it to log all blocked connections but nothing comes up! I went to 'IDS and advanced options' and tried to untick everything but also it doesnt work. BUT, when i disable ESS network filter, the game works just fine! so its definately ESS Is it even the ports? Are my settings wrong? Is this a security feature? Is there a way to bypass it? Can anybody help me out?
