    That's not really a "problem" with your iptables configuration. The MSN clients listen at ports to accept file and voice transmissions. Since the router can't have any idea at all what client to redirect the other side's connection attempts to, it cannot be configured that way. Check to see if the MSN clients can run through a SOCKS proxy, and, if they can, install one on the router and configure the clients to use it.
