There is no native routing tools with Windows XP. You'll either need to move
to a server operating system or look for a third party tool or router.

Hi,

Which router do you own ? It might be helpful to refer to the documentation which came with the
router.

I'm not familiar with your speedstream5200, seems to be a router/modem ?
Read it's documentation and see if it allows to forward the ports - or
possibly set it to bridge mode and pass ip & all-ports configuring an
exception in the windows xp-sp2 firewall for the program & ports. Should
have a router for security though.

You are a Sympatico (Canada) DSL subscriber. You need to perform Port Forwarding on the
Router connected the the SpeedStream 5200 DSL modem. On the Router you forward TCP and/or
UDP ports 7777 and 2106 to the IP address of the PC using those ports. For example, if the
WinXP PC you use is 192.168.1.10 then you have to forward TCP and/or UDP ports 7777 and
2106 to the IP address 192.168.1.10.

You have not stated what Router you use. I am on Verizon DSL and I use a Linksys BEFSR81.
To setup Port Forwarding I go to the URL http://192.168.1.1/Forward.htm where 192.168.1.1
is the IP address of my Linksys Router.

The other option is to put your WinXP in the Router's DMZ. That is if your WinXP IP address
was 192.168.1.10 then you would enter that address for the DMZ setting. On my Linksys
Router I would access the DMZ settings through the URL http://192.168.1.1/DMZ.htm .
{ using the DMZ leaves your PC open Internet worms and hackers and should only be used as a
last resort and with hardening the security of the WinXP PC in question (software FireWall,
WinXP SP2, all Critical Updates, anti virus software, etc.) }

Your settings and the URLs to make/change those settings are specific to the vender and
model of the Router you are using.
