Hey guys, I am not back at uni and am staying halls that they have provided. We are giving access to the internet via a proxy server on port “8080†. I have tried to get msn to connect but with no luck. I can get ICQ and Google Talk to work by entering the proxy details. I have tried GAIM and MSN with these setting but I cat seem to access these. Any idea what I can do or another program I can try … I have tried Triilian to now still no luck.

I think GAIM uses all the messangers too you could give that a try.

I think you can talk to msn people through Yahoo Messanger on your yahoo screen name. <br />
Edit<br />

msn is crap for file tranfers i found (2kbps when behind a router is a joke)... you could run a small ftp server? or something like that... OR use a online host somewhere. but if you insist on msn its up to you <img src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Wink" class="inlineimg" />
