messenger programs
« on: June 16, 2009, 06:00:57 PM »
Hi guys,
I have recently been denied access for MSN Messenger at work, and have been using Yahoo to chat to a couple of my MSN friends, but thats playing up now too. I have tried a bevy of so called "multi-chat clients" that apparently lets you use MSN, Yahoo, AOL etc to chat to contacts from any of these other IM programs, but none of them work, because I presume they are still trying to log me in with my MSN and/or Yahoo accounts, which my IT guys have stopped.... any suggestions of programs I can use? Work is so boring with no outside contact!

use ebuddy if it's unblocked. Pretty sure they'd be blocking the port number in your network so no matter what program you use it will be blocked.

get an account on meebo.com - that's what i use. It acts as a client for MSN all you have to do is log on to the site
I'd kill you, but that might get blood on my shirt.

Yeah, you'll probably need to stick with a web-based client.

I'm assuming the reason you can't get MSN or Yahoo to work is because they've blocked the ports that those clients use... unless they've IP blocked web clients, which is not likely, you can use those... MSN has it's own legit web client, webmessenger.msn.com I believe.

Netsend FTW

care to elaborate?

A command line messenger service.

Basically, you open a command prompt, and type "net send [IP address or computer name] [message]" (without the quotes), and it will send a message to the specified computer in a message box.

It's not an instant messenger service (at least, not in the conventional sense) - it's only really used in the field of networking as a way of testing connectivity between computers.  But hell, try it anyway ...  ;)

Netsend is awesome, but I believe most recent versions of windows have the service disabled by default now.

In networking at TAFE, it only functioned on XP and Server 2003 when we activated the service on both the sending and the receiving computer.

dont use netsend....chances are all messages pop on the server

go check out pidgin, open source client, supports all accounts.
only problem is it doesnt have video and voice, but its a lot lighter and easier to use.
