Hello , please can you tell me how configure the firewall exceptions to open a server to play multiplayer ?, I normally play multiplayer but cannot open a server ( give me zero Ping ) , below are the ports to be open , but I dont understand how to open the first in the list because the first dont have the name and because I dont know how to open the ports " 17997 through 18003 " how to type the word "through" in the firewall ? thank you for your help



SH3's multiplayer abilities allow you to play either on UbiSoft hosted game servers or on privately hosted LAN and Internet based servers.
The following TCP and UDP ports should be opened to allow for SH3 multiplayer gaming:
TCP/UDP ports 17997 through 18003 - allows up to 8 players to join
TCP port 667 - UbiSoft ping
TCP/UDP ports 40000 through 42000 - Ubi.com
TCP/UDP port 43500 - Ubi.com2

Your Anti-virus program should have those features. My Norton Internet Security 2008 does. I don't know about configuring ports, but you should be able to enter the URL of the server into the list of Exceptions.
