i m working on red hat linux 8.0.
i want to install ip messenger on my system.
i hav the following doubts:
1. i access the net via a proxy server, so i do not hav a public ip...can i still use ip messenger??
2. wht r the system requirements to install the same.
3. frm whr can i download it?
what do you mean by "ip messenger"? Are you referring to just any of the Instant Messaging protocols such a AIM, Yahoo! Messenger, MSN, etc..?
If so, than yes, GAIM would work just fine for you... Only problem with using the MSN messenger service is that it has to be a native "@hotmail" or "@msn" account... If you try to use a .NET passport account you ave created, i.e. "email@example.com" than it doesn't connect.. I don't know why...
It works perfectly with AIM, Yahoo!, Jabber, etc..
And as for working behind a proxy, it works fine, because of NAT (Network Address Translation) as part of the TCP/IP network environment. The company I work for uses Yahoo messenger in-house.
