    iptables - ports for Pidgin (esp MSN)

    Due to restrictions on my bandwidth usage during the day, I want to allow my kids to have access to IM, but not to HTTP.

    I found this post https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu...question/26565 which - if I have read it correctly - means I need to open port 1863 for MSN. Have I understood that correctly?

    Thanks in advance!

    That is the main outgoing TCP port. And I think that would be sufficient for basic chatting. The other ports for things like voice or file transfer are listed below
