How to share a wireless connection with a Nintendo DS

Wow. It's working rather nicely with my Powerbook.

I had to disable my firewall for it to connect, though.

I spoke too soon.

I can't find any opponents Worldwide, and I actually got disconnected while searching twice with an error code 85020. There's no info on that code at nintendowifi.com.

I tried this at work (for my son) and had the same experience. The connection test was successful but the application errored out when finding other users. In my case I think it was because UPD packets trying to reach the DS were being stopped by a corporate firewall.

I had to disable the firewall, too.
I'm with Mac OS X 10.4.5 and a Nintendo DS with Mario Kart DS.
If I don't disable the system firewall the connection test completes just fine but when I try to connect to the Nintendo WFC I keep getting a 61020 error code.
Who knows which port(s) I have to open to let the Nintendo DS connect to the Nintendo WFC?
