Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I completely disabled the firewall, it still doesn't work.
It could be my corporate firewall, but I don't think so, because MSN works on the windoze boxes.
Any other ideas? I have the most recent version of kopete, which responds with "Error 14"
In the latest version of Gaim try enabling "httpmethod" type connections. Most MSN clients don't support this, it's used for firewall tunelling, but MSN for Windows will automatically use this if it can't connect normally.
Now it connects and I can see my buddy list. I can't send or receive anything though.
Also, gaim crashes every time I attempt to send a message.
It also disconnects randomly with the error message: "cannot write using http" or something like this.
It was always a bit flakey. A friend of mine wrote it, I debugged it, but getting the MSN servers to keep the connection up for long periods of time is a bit of a black art. I'd recommend talking to the Gaim developers.
