Add the ports to the router's firewall. You'll have to figure out what those ports are (check their website) and you'll also have to get into the router's configuration (look in the manual).

You'll have to port forward, setup a virtual server, or add an exception for your CCTV software.

CCTV belongs to the boss and I can't simply change settings in the router that other staff don't know how to deal with in case I'm not around.
Guess we have to fire that fat guy.

Or you could tell him if you dont stop playing we will fire you. He might stop playing then. Even if you did stop the port on the firewall you can still get round it with 2 programs hehe

Yup, sounds like its time for a "Written warning" that usually gets the point across.

OK I really want to make it work without blocking CCTV.
To port forward, I click on the Port Forwarding, then the Custom Port Forwarding. On the screen, I have the Source IP Address, Destination IP Address, Destination Port Start, Destination Port Map, Source Netmask, Destination Netmask, Destination Port End.
Which one do I have to fill in?
Destination Netmask has 255.255.255.255 already. Protocol is TCP already.
Do I have to enable firewall to do this?
Please help me to get this done guys. Fat dude's job and pride is at stakes here.

I have tried with some of the games that are already in the Available Rules. Don't see any block button or do not allow button.

redirect the port (port forward) in the port routing just put the incoming game port pointing to another IP address that is not used.

Il'm sorry but this is the part that I don't understand. How would it prevent the user from logging into the game server through the router? And which field do I fill in?

A: Get a real Firewall that allows for the level of granuality that you are looking for.
You can allow all or some ports to your "boss" while closing the same ports to everyone else using access list.
If you are in a Win2K or 2K3 Domain, you can use the profiles to permit or reject if you have a Proxy or ISA server present.
If you are on a flat, but switched network then get TAMOSOFTs IP sniffer, then block based upon the port and IP address of the workstation.
