    MSN Messenger

    Hi all

    Anyone know of a way of allowing MSN Messenger? We have an unfiltered connection (via our ISA server) for selected admin staff and there are reasonable grounds for making use of Messenger... but it won't connect. Have tried it with and without manually entering proxy settings, but no joy.

    Any thoughts?!

    It will also normally use the internet explorer proxy settings.

    Ah.. I have changed the default gateway to the ISA server. This appears to have resolved the problem! (Although they cannot now for some reason ping websites.. but can browse them as normal...)

    Thanks!
