Help Needed in setting up Yahoo Messenger.

I have downloaded and installed yahoo messenger for redhat 9 but i can't seem to connect. We are connected on a LAN using a Proxy server with SOCKS connection. I have checked the preferences but messenger does not support SOCKS connection. Is there any other way to configure the connection and make my messenger work?


  • What error messages do you get? Also, verify that the port that Yahoo! Messenger uses is not blocked by your firewall. Red Hat automatically sets up iptables when you install and the port may be blocked or your network administrators may have blocked the port to stop chatting.
