you could try connecting to your IP(if you are trying to connect to your own machine) or your loopback device (127.0.0.1). If you are having an issue connecting outside, try the server's IP, you seem to have an name problem ( problem with your DNS).
As for the messenger, what is it?

that is www.google.com and then pinging some known IP (Like 64.179.4.146 for www.linuxquestions.org) If the later works, but not the first, it is an DNS issue.
