Depends on the videoconference software you wish to use. I for example never was able to get Micro$oft Netmeeting to work through my old Netgear router, never bothered to try it with the current Linksys.

Yahoo messenger works for me "out of the box" with no need to mess with router settings or ports and no need to open myself up for security problems.

Whatever you do make sure you DON'T list yourself in any public directories unless you want people sending you pictures you probably don't want to see....
