Thread: MSN Live Messenger Connection

    Default MSN Live Messenger Connection

    When it is running though, my MSN Live Messenger does not seem to connect no matter what. I've tried turning off all the components, set it to access privileges to everything, and configure settings. But unless I shut down ZoneAlarm, it doesn't seem to run. Any suggestions?

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

    Unfortunately there is a problem with MSN Messenger 8 and ZA 6.5 that will only be fixed in version 7.Either you revert back to ZA 6.1 and wait for 7 to come or you use a Messenger prior to 8.Are you a registered user of ZASS? A patch was released sometime ago by ZALabs to solve the connection issues with MSN Messenger. But it will only works (download)for registered version of ZASS (not the trial).If you are a registered users, have you tried to manual update ZA? (under Overview --> Preferences --> "check for update")Cheers,Fax

    Yes, I am a registered user. But, I cannot seem to get it with the updates. Is there a manual way to install the patch?

    Hi!thanks for the feedback. Please note that the patch in practice disable IM encryption for MSN Messenger to allow for the signing-in.Hopefully ZA series 7 will fix it with encryption enabled. Right now it works (version 7 beta) with IM set to OFF.Cheers,Fax
