what port should I use?

Apr 4, 2012 at 3:41 AM

I am trying to get squiggle set up to work on my home network so I can talk from one end of the house to the other without having to yell :)

I have installed squiggle on 3 windows machines - XP, Vista and 7. I have my router set to use reserved IP addresses for each of my computers and renewed the DHCP on each of the computers. I can't figure out how to use UDP on my NetGear DGN220 router, so I thought to use the multicast.

I know what the IP address is that I need, but I don't know which port I need to use. I need to know what port to use in the multicast unless someone can tell me how to get the UDP working on my router.

I am definitely NOT tech-savvy, so the "dummies" version would be greatly appreciated.

 

thanks in advance,

Mickey
