Summary: Proxy Problems?

Initial Comment:
I just installed the new GAIM 1.3.1 (Windows version)
on my system - the install had no issues at all.  I am
able to connect to AIM without any problem.  However,
both MSN and Yahoo refuse to connect.  I am at work and
am going throug a Proxy Server to get out.  I can use
AOL, MSN, and Yahoo instant messengers from here
(although MSN routinely drops messages).  I left the
proxy settings as Use Environmental Settings.  I have
also tried using the HTTP Proxy settings, but then not
even AOL will connect.  Any suggestions are much

I have tried using the Gaim 2.0 beta 5 and have the same issue - won't
connect to AOL. AIM seems to work fine with the same proxy settings.
Using http proxy on port 8000 (my companies proxy server).

This bug is fixed in the most recent version of Gaim.  If you are
not using the lastest version, please upgrade.  If you are using
the latest version, please indicate so and reopen this bug.

Hi, I have this problem too. At home, gaim works perfectly,
but when I'm at college, I can't use it for any account, be
it Yahoo, MSN, ICQ etc. We use the intranet to connect over
here and I can only use webmsn which isn't really too ideal.

Yeah, it happen at my site, I have the same issue, even I
tried gaim-2.0.0beta2. I'm still looking for a solution that
can make gaim works with proxy.
