Hello,whilst trying to get onto msn messenger, I get the following message...'unable to find the SOCKS proxy server...check name on Connections tab'.

The name on the connections tab is as follows:

type.... socks version4
server.... http
port.... 1080
user.... blank
password.... blank

there is a tick in use proxy server.

Othere using msn messenger on the same pc have exactly the same settings and can get onto msn messenger.

I could get on yesterday.

Using windowsXP home.

Any help will be apprecited

Many thanks,

Have you tried unticking `use proxy server`? Not usually needed unless you're using your PC from an intranet (uni/library/school/company) etc
