    How do you get MSN voice to work with CHX ? Sofar with my tests, you can not use voice since MSN uses random ports for the subsection services of MSN messenger and you can not predict what ports it will use . . . How do you get MSN to work well with this CHX-i ?


    Thanks

    At least that I know, you can't.

    You can't set rules on CHX based on applications processes...

    In Skype you can set the port to use that feature, and than make a rule on CHX for it.

    If you have the standard rules and the right configuration, you will be protected... ;)
