It depends. If Windows Firewall isn't blocking the game at all, then I don't think it would help.

You do NOT want to trun off the fire wall. That will open the entire PC to the Internet. You want to make an exception for the Halo Game. See:

I started a server and no one can join the game

Turn it off, it blocks absolutely nothing vital. Most spyware and contagious files are passed through it anyway. Get zone alarm. It's free and works unlike windows.

AVG 8.0 is another FAIL like clamwin, and any other AV. Get Norton Gamers edition.

Win post is win. Norton is the biggest failure of a virus protecor I've ever seen. It totally screwed up my computer. I use AVG and it's awesome. I reccommend it.

No.
Instead turn off your firewall completely and disable your Anti-virus then Halo should work.
This is very bad advice, to the point of being deceitful. Do not disable the anti-virus or firewall software. You need to make exceptions in them to allow the particular ports to be open.

go to portfarward.com and pick your router and game, then it will tell you how to do it.

Read the readme for Halo. You need to open up ports 2302 and 2303 on your computer in order to HOST a game. (you can connect to other servers with these ports closed, but no one can connect to you or see your game while they are closed.)

In order to do this you need to be able to access you router/modem (if you're on a 56k don't even try hosting, it will only result in epic lag and no one will join) I think there's a tutorial on the site/forums about what to do, but I can't remember.

BTW ports 2302 and 2303 are the ports nearly every IP-based multiplayer game uses (Halo directly connects to the game host's IP for multiplayer). So if you have other games with similar multiplayer to Halo you'll need these ports open anyway.

You still have to connect to a router. Unless you're camped out in the library. I never got Halo to work there.

Really? Give me one reason why I should turn it back on? Just plain turn it off and actually get a firewall. All Windows does is block everything, and you then have to configure it all. While as Zone Alarm has a UI pop up asking if you want to deny or remember allow. It has it's own "learn mode", where it adapts to your system. Another reason why to stay away from the firewall is that Microsoft "Spies" on you. It's true, windows media player does it, the firewall does it, and internet explore as well. Only reason why I use Windows is because I am very familiar with its system and it's stable.

My windows firewall does this too....

That's the biggest load of crap I've ever heard.

Wait, is your wireless through your city or something? (the access point isn't in your house)

If so, you're out of luck, you have no way to host games since you can't open the ports needed to host.

If it can tell local police what people have on their computer why haven't the thousands of users who download music illegally been arrested?

Because there are thousands of others. Really, you expect everyone to be caught? Lets say there area million cops in the world. There are over 5 billion people on earth. And you think that everyone piriting music is going to be caught?

Really? Read up, trust it. Microsoft doesn't like its users. If you want more privacy, I'd suggest going to Ubuntu.

Go here, select your router's name:

That doesn't prove anything.
By the way... I'm a Vista user and proud of it.

Cough* Eww.. Vista.. Cough*

It doesn't matter what version of windows you have, unless it's Windows 95 or something Lol.

By the way, that list he posted does not have every router. Sadly, mines not on the list.

EDIT: Wait what? I figured it out.. You can't make a server because you're connecting your pc to the hose :P

No, he stated the obvious after a debate. The information was already stated. That's why you, read first, think about the consequences and then post.
