Alright well, here is my story... 3 days ago, my friend had me download AIM 5.5. I was using something post 5, so I was somewhat already up to date. So I download it, and install it....goto run it..will not connect. It doesn't even begin to start connecting, just immediately says "The AIM service can't be reached." I am hooked up to a Linksys 4 Port Router on a Cable Modem. I have tried just about everything I can think of. I believe I have my port forwards setup correctly even for AIM, however I could be wrong. I have it set up based off the only information I could find on this site, and that was for file transferring http://www.smallnetbuilder.com/FAQ-25-Getting+applications+to+work+(opening+ports)-0.php#92 The only other thing I've messed with is the DMZ Host settings which I've had good luck with in the past, but it has been to no avail this time. Any suggestions on what else I might try?
