Internet working ... gaim, kopete, IM not connecting
 
I've tried for a while now to connect to AIM, Yahoo, MSN and Google using Gaim and tried AIM using Kopete and it seems iffy as to when it wants to work -- sometimes yes, most times no. Running Gaim with debug doesn't show anything odd -- it just hangs. Kopete also just hangs then crashes.

Being that both Kopete and Gaim won't connect (yet my browsers, email, and wget all work fine) it must have to do with something involving ports, app conflict tied to a port, or something else that I'm missing ... I'm stumped.

Any direction or troubleshooting ideas would be much appreciated.

How about your firewall blocking the ports?

I use Guarddog and I had to allow AIm, MSN, Yahoo, IRC in order to connect to any of them.

Nope, and I just got Kopete to connect and now GAIM will only connect just after Kopete does. Sigh, this is just plain annoying. I'm going to toy with the whole Kopete connecting for a bit. Thanks.
