Does anyone know of a tool to foward ports in WinXP?

I have 2 computers (this one and a laptop) and this one is sharring the net connection to the laptop, however i have a tool on the laptop that acts as a server and it needs some ports forward to it. However i dont know how to do that. Do i need to buy a router or is there a way to configure WinXP or a tool that allows me to do this?

Btw this machine has SP2 and the laptop has SP1 just in case if matters.

Thks in advance

No im not. and thats the problem, with the router i could just set the ports and the PC IP and that would work. But how to do it when its windows thats sharring the connection?

Oh gods. Port Forwarding on Windows Firewall is a right *****.
Windows Firewall > Advanced > Network Connection Settings > Settings. You can add ports to forward from there. Individualy. You can't do a scope of ports.

Well why didn't you look at the settings page. It's blatently for port forwarding. I do know what port forwarding is, I did have to do it before when I was using a USB modem on my other PC.

Sorry for being a little irate earlier, I thought you saying that I didnae know what I was talking about. Yes there is a seperate page for setting which ports are avaliable to the computer you are on, but that's elsewhere.
