not able to log in yahoo/msn/aol messenger with gaim.

Asked by aphysician on 2007-07-31


I had a problem logging in yahoo/aol/msn messenger with gaim. i searched few topics and was able to understand that it has something to do with proxy server. i changed my proxy server settings to no proxy. everything is fine since, but i am not sure whether it is advisable. have just started to use ubuntu after years of frustration with MS. my initial experience with ubuntu has been very exciting. it surprises me daily with useful features. is there any other way in addition to 'no proxy' settings which allows me to use gaim? Many thanks in advance.

Not using a proxy is fine, since this is how most people configure their settings for internet use(unless you wish to bypass some blocking at a school! :P)

Can you help with this problem?
