Firewall ON or OFF while on-Line?

My Friends,
I'm curious - Does it matter whether MY Firewall is ON or OFF while hosting Multi-Player sessions or while participating in one? I'm not sure I want to turn it off but, if it's preventing people from joining my session, or if I'll gain something while in other sessions, I'm game as long as there is a work-around.

Also -- A pilot in one of my sessions "spawned-in" in an F-15C. I saw it as a C-172 - a very FAST C-172. Why was I unable to see the Eagle????

Thanks in advance for your reply(s).

Keep the firewall on unless you have to turn it off.
If you don't have the exact aircraft that someone else is flying the Sim will substitute anything it wants.

What would be the indication that I must turn it off?

If you have forwarded the FS ports from your router to your computer where your flying from then you are safe. shouldn't be a problem
