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. "narora@linuxquestions.net" 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.

hmm... no i don't.. In the dark and demonic world of M$ you can use the "net send" command.. but I'm not sure if there is a similar function in *NIX...

Maybe someone else knows..
