How do I allow specific IP addresses access through my OneCare firewall RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am having issues viewing Microsoft webcasts via their On Demand Partner site. These webcasts use LiveMeeting to provide the hosting and I have been having issues with the video dropping out while the webcast is displaying "A Shared Desktop". During this blackout, the audio continues as normal and non-desktop sharing slides will continue to display. The LiveMeeting Tech support says that I must ensure that their Servers and the required TCP/UDP ports are allowed access. I have found the settings in OneCare to open the specific ports and protocols but where are the settings to allow only certain IP addresses to access those ports?

  • There are no settings for specific IP addresses. Live Meeting should actually work through OneCare without *any* configuration on your part as it is a recognized application by OneCare. If you have enabled the ports and protocols, you have not exposed your PC as there are no listening applications on those ports unless you have Live Meeting started and you initiate the communication from your side.
