    Default Windows Sockets Error 10053 and GAIM

    Since I have upgraded to ZA Suite 6.5.737.00, my GAIM (GNU Instant Messenger) frequently disconnects with the error "Windows Socket Error 10053."

    I have my IM security turned off. I am also running an currently patched Windows XP Pro workstation.

    I'm constantly connecting and disconnecting, and all my Work Buddies are complaining.

    I really want to keep ZA running when I check my email because of the large amount of junk email ZA filters for me.

    Any ideas?

    Operating System:Windows XP Pro
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite
    Software Version:6.5

    The IM has server rights allowed for the Trusted Zone and Ask for the server rights for the Internet Zone? It should have rights for the Trusted and the Internet Zones.

    Best regards.

    Thanks for reminding me.

    GAIM has Super Trust and green check marks for everything except send mail.

    Any other dependent programs it calls?
