Also, are you using a proxy? What sort of settings does it have? Are you using a firewall too?

We need more information.

thanks for your reply
I have installed gaim 1.03
yeah! Iam connected through proxy
sorry I forgot to mention about firewall
our firewall won't allow us to do voice chat in windows yahoo messenger
it allows voice chat in messenger
is that anything related to it

our proxy is something like this proxy.xx.xxxx.xxxxx.xx port 3128
can't I use gaim .......
thanks for your interest again
