firewall on my MSN audio conversation


I installed a updated MSN Messenger I have no problem with chat & transferring files but if I used the audio conversation it always ended, I cannot establish the audio connection.

Some says this prob happens because of my firewall....i have ipchains as my firewall & allow the ports used by msn audio (6901) but still same prob as I connect. I even tried to flush my ipchains but still the same. Can u please heck this if this is right, I inserted this script on my ipchains:

-A input -p tcp -s 0/0 -d 0/0 5004:65535 -j ACCEPT
-A input -p udp -s 0/0 -d 0/0 5004:65535 -j ACCEPT

(MSN told that ports 5004-65535 should be open)
(MSN used ports are 6901 & 6801)

Can you please give me the right script for my ipchains for this.

or does anybody have any ideas how to resolve my problem.

Thank you.

No, I can't change it if I will have to change it I need to install upgraded version of redhat.

Is there any way you could still help me using the ipchains?
