I am using MSN Messenger 7.0 and have noticed that when I start games with
certain people - the game doesn't work properly. Note that it's only some
people that I get the forever "Waiting for buddy..." message upon game load
up.

Tic-tac-toe seems to work with firewalled people. However games like
Minesweeper Flags, etc. don't seem to work (get the forever "Waiting for
buddy..." message). Just wondering whether certain games/applications use
additional ports for application/game connections?

It's the same with like MSN Whiteboard, Photoswap, Remote Assistance (all
within the Activities button).
