Yahoo and MSN not connecting via GAIM (using Mandrake 9.2)
Gaim was part of the Mandrake install.
I am not using any proxy and my PC connects to the Internet fine.
When running GAIM using my Yahoo and MSN accounts, I receive the error message "protocol not supported". This is when no proxy is set.
A Google search mentions using a free proxy with port as 80. Using this does not work - the error message is "cannot connect to the server".
I can ping this free proxy.
I have used the MSN ports 443 and 1863 with this free proxy - still not working.
Any advice would be appreciated.
