ymessenger on fedora core1


hi friends i am having problem with installing the ymessenger.
it hangs up with the "connecting..........."
and never connects
and i have also tried "gaim"
there was no error while installing the gaim but when i run it . it could not connect me
to the ymessenger (i am behind the firewall and can connect to the internet with the
same proxy address as it configured in case of gaim) can any body tell me what went
wrong with me

try turning off iptables to see if that is the problem:

as root, run:
Code:
/sbin/service iptables stop
if that doesn't work.... then it may be the proxy/firewall that you're running through.


hope i could help!!!!!!!!!!!!

can you post a snapshot of your /var/log/messages file when trying to connect using yahoo or GAIM? i'm curious as to if they are posting any error-based activity to your log file(s).
