How can I change the local port used by AntiFirewall?
(other tech support topics)

Some client programs cannot understand the port numbers other than the standard ones. In such cases you'll need to make AntiFirewall use the standard port instead of the one selected automatically.

In the current version you can do it by editing the configuration file, AF.OPT, located in the folder where you installed full version of AntiFirewall (usually C:\Program Files\AntiFirewall\). Shut down AntiFirewall, then you can open the AF.OPT file with Windows Notepad. All settings which belong to a particular connection are grouped together, and each such group has a title showing the name of the connection. Locate the connection you want to edit and then enter the port number you need on the line starting with "D", overwriting the port number which is currently there (be careful not to leave any spaces). Then save the file and start AntiFirewall again. See the example below. Note that the demo version doesn't support this feature.
