Thread: MSN on Mac

  1. #1

    Default MSN on Mac

    Just downloaded MSN on my Mac but I keep getting disconnected. Any idea why?
    I'm on Mac OS X Version 10.3.8 and I downloaded MSN messenger for MAC Version 4.0.1.

    Ok, I've downloaded Adium but guess what? I'm still getting disconnected!
    Am I experiencing a firewall or something?

    could be your office Firewall and adminstrative privileges preventing you from using it.

    Check with ur system admin. High probability they blocked all ports for ICQ, MSN, IRC, etc, etc.

    then most likely your admin blocked MSN/ICQ to prevent workers to chat online during working hours lor

    your colleague got same problem?

    Likely the sysadmin has blocked IM ports to prevent spread of IM virus - heard that theres a Kelvir worm variant thats making the rounds.

    For those who still have access to IM, just practice caution and NOT click on any URL being sent over IM.
