Turn off the firewall completely, so it allows everything, then connect with your MSN client..

now open a console and type "netstat -p"

have a look for an entry like so...

tcp        0      0       baym-cs385.msgr.ho:1863 ESTABLISHED 3922/kopete
tcp        0      0 ESTABLISHED 3922/kopete
i use kopete.. but you should see somthing like aMSN where mine says Kopete.

look at the number after the ":" on remote address. make sure that your firewall is set to allow outgoing TCP connections to that port (in my case 1863) i think your port will be the same, but it may not.

now sign out of aMSN, turn the firewall back on, and try to re-connect. does this work ?
