Webcams on MSN with a proxy

  fatlardo 22:08 16 Feb 2006

My webcam will not work over MSN. It gets as far as connecting and then i get a message saying its unable to connect. Im using a proxy server to connect. Im currently using SpoonProxy but ive had the same problem with AnalogX Proxy. Both machines have windows XP SP2, the laptop which i use had it pre-installed and the PC which i use as the server had it installed from windows update a few weeks ago. The webcam seemed to work before SP2 so im wondering if its the Windows Firewall. I tried turning it off bt ive heard that you can never really turn it off!! Anyone got any ideas??

Well what you need to try and do is switch your proxy server to a HTTP server because that is what the webcams on msn will work for.

How would i go about doing that? I can do the software, but when it comes to networking and the internet in a complete idiot!!!!
