What you can do is go to the MSN Messenger Window. Click tools//Options//Connection. Once there you can manipulate the port you are using by checking I use a Proxy server. Another way to do this is to ask your system admin to unblock that port, unless it's blocked for a reason... Like keeping employees off messenger? :wink:

If you're at work and using MSN messenger... You can use one of the existing ports. If the sys admins are cool, they'll let you know whats open. Doing a port scan at work could be detrimental to your employment status. Not that I've ever done anything like that.... but using the Secure Port does produce some promising results. It's not like they can block every port. :arrow:
