I've been tinkering with the firewall(SuSEfirewall2)and using guarddog to avoid writing IP tables.After a lot of different settings finally found one that worked and stealthed me.
Basically when I first set up the IM I allowed the yahoo protocols on the internet(in the firewall) but not on the local(firewall).Looks like in kopete when you set-up an user account it only allows for IM as default and then only webcam recieving as default.
Anyway fixed now(I hope!).
Your help was much appreiciated.
