Amsn TLS help


I installed Amsn and it won't install TLS. When I try to login it wants to install TLS but it says:

Error istalling TLS module: couldn't open socket: connection refused.

I don't know if its a firewall blocking it of what?

I have installed TLS from source but Amsn doesn't think its there.

Does anyone know what my problem is?

That's funny.
The feature worked a week ago, but yesterday i installed aMSN on another computer, and i'm getting the exact same error.

I managed to install TLS manually, and aMSN finds the libraries, but doesn't log me into my account properly.
It just keeps saying "Logging in....".

I don't think so. I downloaded the Slackware version from the Amsn website.

I got connected with Mercury and I will see how it works out. I guess I won't be using Amsn.

you can use Gaim to connect to MSN, but you will not as much feature as you will get in aMSN, mostly 0.95 which has good improvements
