    No, that shouldn't be necessary at all.

    Any chance you're behind a corporate firewall? That's usually the number one blocker of these things. Try it from a home network?

    Thanks Ken.

    I'm on a home network, with a McAfee security package providing firewall protection

    I am on a home network with McAfee and don't have these issues - I would think that something else is at play here. Do you have extra firewall settings on your router?
