Can someone please verify that the 1394ieee network device (firewire) is
controlled by port 80?
Thanks,
Treeman

I'm sorry, but I don't understand what "controlled by port 80" means
with respect to FireWire networking. Please explain more about what
you're asking.

WWW access (HTTP) uses port 80 (TCP and UDP) regardless of the type of
network (FireWire, Ethernet, dial-up, etc).

File and Pinter Sharing on a local area network doesn't use port 80.

Your message subject mentions "SP2 Firewall". What do you want to
know about the firewall?

Hi Steve,
Thanks for your post back on the dial-up fix!
About the firewire & firewall question. (I know they both have the word
fire in them, grin) I just thought that maybe the firewall directly
controlled the firewire thruput on a specific port is all.
I've been wrong before. :)
Best,
Treeman

You're welcome, Treeman.

By default, settings for Windows Firewall apply to all network
connections: dial-up, Ethernet, FireWire, USB, etc. You can manually
configure it in the Advanced tab if you want different settings for
different connections.
