    LICQ connection to server problem

    I have installed LICQ ver. 1.2.7 under my RedHat Linux 9 but it doesn't want to connect by some reason. The connection log is following:
    18:16:03: [SRV] Requesting logon (#22650)...
    18:16:03: [SRV] Connecting to login server.
    18:16:03: [SRV] Resolving port 5190...
    18:16:03: [SRV] ICQ server found at
    18:16:03: [SRV] Opening socket to server.
    18:19:12: [SRV] Connecting to login server failed, failing event
    18:25:02: [SRV] Requesting logon (#22651)...
    18:25:02: [SRV] Connecting to login server.
    18:25:02: [SRV] Resolving port 5190...
    18:25:02: [SRV] ICQ server found at
    18:25:02: [SRV] Opening socket to server.
    18:28:11: [SRV] Connecting to login server failed, failing event

    It makes a big pause on the 'Opening socket to server' step and after 3 minutes it fails. I also use the ICQ on Windows 2000 with the same connection parameters ( and it works fine. Does anybody know the reason of this error?

    dont quote me as this is jsut shooting, but look around and see if linux uses a different port than windows to connect to icq.
