Help with windows messenger and Kerio firewall

  Demora 00:58 18 May 2008


I don't often use windows Live messenger so didn't notice this problem for a while.

I narrowed it down to my firewall (Kerio4) preventing me from connecting to live messenger. If I turn off the firewall I can connect fine. Turning it on whilst connected drops my connection to windows live messenger.

O/s is win xp and I'm on a wireless connection via a netgear wireless Next modem/router.

Any advice please.

Have you added WLM to your Site Exceptions under the Web tab?

Hmmm not sure what I'm looking for and where there Technotiger (Networks and stuff I tend to leave well alone unless its not working properly)

The error message I get is '80072745' I checked with the MS website for this error and I cannot connect the pc directly to the Modem as thats upstairs and this pc is downstairs and quite a way from any phoneline.

I uninstalled 'WLM' cleaned the registry and did a reinstall with NO luck.

I can't pinpoint when this stopped working as I don't use it very often and its always worked in the past.

If you know the URL for WLM you could add it to Site Exceptions in Kerio configuration under the Web tab.

Or, if it had been working ok previously, perhaps a System Restore back to when it was working.

I'm going to mark this as resolved as I have changed firewalls. To Comodo and all is fixed.

I did notice that since doing this that the Icons in the system tray have returned also. Which I didn't mention before.

There must have been something missing with Kerio.

Thanks for your help Technotiger.
