So to get MSN working, I'll need to open my firewall to allow port 1863 to work (I'll have to read up on that process). Then make a new account with my MSN Messenger username and password?

I noticed in the accounts section it has Oscar and TOC protocols. Do I use one of those?

Will this work with the new Windows Messenger (XP)?

Could I possible ask any more questions?

to use msn you load the msn plugin. libmsn.so.0 unsurprisingly. and the msn plugin will of course work with msn xp or whatever... it's msn...

what is the MSN protocol, I'm having trouble setting up my Gaim
To get you connected to the MSN network with GAIM (after you have installed it) you need to load the relevant plugin.

just start up gaim and then on the first page click on
plugins, then choose load from the new page that appears. choose libmsn from the list of plugins and you will be sorted. it should be usable to set up an account with.

however gaim doesn;t support file transfer (maybe never). i see their point, what's wrong with sending an email?

Hehe, that was easy. No messing with my firewall at all. Just add the MSN plugin. Thanks for the help, it works with the Windows Messenger in XP like you said, too - no problems. I've been chatting with my buddy who has XP finally. Cool, thanks again.
