Pidgin: Can't send messages using MSN http method

Is anybody having problems sending messages using MSN http method or standard?

I always get:
"Message could not be sent because a connection error occurred:"

At home with AdiumX it works, just not with Pidgin. Yahoo and other protocols work fine.

I did a clean-install just to see if that made any difference but no luck.

Any ideas?

Regards,

David

Well,

I'm using Pidgin Portable right now with MSN. It works perfectly for me.

It worked a a few weeks ago

As it worked till a few weeks ago I think it must be due to either the MSN http protocol changing recently or changes in our corporate firewall.

If I use the browser based webmessenger.msn.com I do get thru the FW.

I guess the Pidgin/ libpurple MSN http implementation isn't quite the same as the official MSN one

Open the command line (if you can't use Start » Run » cmd, use Command Prompt Portable) and enter ping messenger.hotmail.com:1863
