SSH for MSN using GAIM


Hi there, I've been using Linux Red Hat for a while... I just installed GAIM 0.75 in my computer and it works pretty well with ICQ, but when trying to connect to MSN it says that it needs some ssh stuff and that I have to download it from sourceforge.net, but I can't find anything in that page!

Also I have been searching a little in the web but I haven't seen anything about it... Am I doing something wrong or am I missing something? In fact I dont know what is ssh and I found that it is a command for text interphase but I'm not pretty sure that I have to use that.

I'm not newbie but I'm not a professional user...

Thx

I believe it's ssl not ssh. You'll find ssl at www.openssl.org if you don't already have it installed. You could already have it installed but you might be using a Gaim-client compiled without support from it. If you compile it yourself, add the appropriate option to ./configure, I think it's --with-openssl or something similiar. If you are installing Gaim with an rpm, make sure it's made supporting ssl.
