Can't play network game

For some reason whenever I try to play a game of football-o-saurus against my friend by connecting to his server, I keep getting a windows socket error suggesting "maybe there is a firewall blocking my connection". I am running trend micro internet security pro. How do I allow football to play across the internet behind a firewall?

There should be an option to open ports somewhere in your firewall software. Football-o-saurus uses port #4876 according to the in-game help file. So if you open that port it should be fine.

I think still there aren't any option as you stated but maybe in near future there will be something like that !

If you want an easy way here, turn of bot Windows and Trend Micro firewall here and surely, you're good to go.
