Problems with Gaim RH9/Fedora/RH8

Hello all,

I hope somebody can help me find a solution to this. I am tying to sign onto the aol instant messaging protocol. For some reason I am not able to sign on at all. Gaim gets stuck at "name sent" or it sometimes makes it all the way to "finalizing connection" but it just halts there. I get nothing. I have tried different distros, and I have the latest versions of gaim. I am not necessarily a n00b but this might be a n00b situation.

BTW - I have also tried tik, jabber, and the aim client from aol and they all get stuck at some point. With the aim client from aol I get stuck at "veryifying user name and password".

If anyone has a solution for this please let me know, I would greatly appreciate this.

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
