Configuring Windows Live Messenger through the Kerio Personal Firewall

1. From the system tray, near the system clock, click on the Kerio Personal firewall to open the Firewall Configuration window. 
2. Click on Network Security and choose the Applications tab. 
3. Depending on your Any Other Application setting, you may recieve a prompt or the application will be allowed automatically when a new application tries to access the Internet through the firewall,. When you use Windows Live Messenger, it will automatically be added to the Applications list. Once added, you will have to ensure it has full access to connect to the Internet. 
4. In the Applications list, verify the settings for Windows Live Messenger. Windows Live Messenger must be set to Permit in the In and Out sub-columns of both the Trusted and Internet columns.
5. To modify settings, select the Windows Live Messenger entry and choose Edit to open the Connection Settings window.  
6. In the Connection Settings window ensure Incoming Connection and Outgoing Connections are all set to Permit. Click OK to close the window.
