Question (need help) GAIM and proxy setting


Hallo all,

What a shame and what a stupid newbie.
Now about GAIM. Can i using GAIM with proxy?
Why i always get error message:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
Access denied: proxy servers forbids port 5050 tunnelling
------------------------------------------------------------------------

I use proxy port 3128.
Anybody here can explain to me what's going on
and what i have to do so i can use proxy for GAIM.
And it will really helpfull if you can explain all technical aspects there.

Thanks you so much!

Hallo masand,

thanks for answering.
I use a computer in my house as a part of Uni-LAN. For that i have a question.
What i have to do? ask administrator to allow port 5050 in Universitšt Server or
i must edit something in my computer. (In fstab or other).
Well, if i have to ask Admin in Universitšt server to allow port 5050... i think he won't allow that.

Thanks again.

regards,
Klitscho

hi there

this is from my squid.conf
#Recommended minimum configuration:
acl all src 0.0.0.0/0.0.0.0
acl manager proto cache_object
acl localhost src 127.0.0.1/255.255.255.255
acl to_localhost dst 127.0.0.0/8
acl SSL_ports port 443 563
acl Safe_ports port 80 # http
acl Safe_ports port 21 # ftp
acl Safe_ports port 443 563 # https, snews
acl Safe_ports port 70 # gopher
acl Safe_ports port 210 # wais
acl Safe_ports port 1025-65535 # unregistered ports
acl Safe_ports port 280 # http-mgmt
acl Safe_ports port 488 # gss-http
acl Safe_ports port 591 # filemaker
acl Safe_ports port 777 # multiling http

u see that u been allowed certain ports
and u need to add this to allow gaim

acl Safe_ports port 5050


this will be done on the server(the system where the proxy server is running), not in ur system

regards

I am having the same problem. It can, however log in with kopete, but here I can't send or receive messages (they cant be read).

How does Yahoo Messenger do this? (YM looks awful)

Hi,

I had the same problem, with gaim on fedora core 2.
I installed latest version of gaim - http://gaim.sourceforge.net/downloads.php
gaim 1.2 at that time. my problem was solved.
used global proxy in gaim preferences, can be configured manually also.

hope it helps.

Hi,

Actually I was getting the error message:

"Access denied: proxy server forbids port 80 tunneling"

beacuse in gaim account settings file transfer was set to use port 80.

In gaim 1.1.2 also same port settings are there, but they are working fine.
I DID NOT get the tunneling error message!!
I did not ask my administrator to allow port 80.

maybe the newewerr version gaim is an improvement

also ur admin must have allowed port 80 ,that isthe reason u can surf sites as well
