Oh, good.

Basically, you want to forward port 1863 to your computer's IP address. Your computer's IP is the one that comes up when you run the ifconfig command I showed you earlier in this thread (you can also find out your IP by going to System Preferences > Network > Airport > Configure).

Use 1863 for the starting and ending port.

Alrighty.

The LAN IP Address should be the last digits of your network IP address. This is the address that comes up when you run the following in a Terminal:
Code: [ Select ]
ifconfig | grep "inet 192"

For example, if I were doing this, I run the command and get this:
Code: [ Select ]
inet 192.168.0.26 netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast 192.168.0.255

In my case, I would enter 26 as my LAN IP Address.

For description, just put "Adium/MSN" or something along those lines.

For Protocol Type, select TCP + UDP.

Enter 1863 for the LAN Port and the Public Port.

Select Enabled.

If none of this gets you anywhere, please post a screenshot of the error that Adium is giving you when you try to connect.

Also check out portforward.com. Here is the guide for a random Belkin router I selected from the list (don't know which one you've got, exactly), but if it doesn't work for you, you can find the guide for your one.

We already know you can't use IM, mtracerz. =) More helpful, probably, would be views of your router's port forwarding configuration so that someone can help you figure out how to fix it.

Please read the full topic before replying; I asked him to post that screenshot. We've been through port forwarding, it is not the problem in this situation.

Yeah, I'm trying to think what could be the problem. I'm a bit baffled at this point. We'll have to pick it up during the week because I'm leaving in a few minutes and won't be here the rest of the night.

Actually I did, but missed the line where you made that request. And by the way, it's certainly not clear from the conversation thus far that port forwarding might not still be the problem. But I'll leave it in your obviously more capable hands.

Apologies, mtracerz, and good luck.

Hi mtracerz, i have the same problem, Adium don't connect.
I think that port forwarding and router configuration has nothing to do with the problem.
In my macbook i'm running vmware with windows XP, and MSN connects on windows XP !
The same think happends with google Earth on MacOS: google earth don't connect to google server.
On XP google Earth connects and works fine.
I also turned my mac firewall off and the problem continues.

WHY ? port forwarding.... NO, router configuration ... NO, mac firewall turned on .... NO ....

:(


Spork and justG: any ideia ?



ps: i have Ubuntu in a virtual machine in vmware on macbook too, i use aMsn in ubuntu and it works too... aMsn in my mac doesn't work.


Thanks !

-sorry for the bad english ;)

maybe instead of disabling your firewall, open port 1863 for msn to connect through?
