MSN Messenger won't connect

  Pier1 16:26 03 Sep 2003

Lately I haven't been able to connect MSN Messenger. It tries for a while, then it says that it appears to be behind a firewall and that I should also check my proxy and LAN settings.

I have no firewall installed, I'm on dial-up and I've tried to connect when no other program is using the internet connection. My ISP is AOL.

I recently upgraded from MSN Mess 5 to 6, but have been using it since without a problem until now.

It appears to be caused by the latest aol auto update, apparently a lot of people are having connection difficulties with messenger who are using aol.

AOL is having problems with MSN at the moment, they're trying to sort it out.

Ok, so patience seems to be the solution.

Thanks guys
