AOL IM/MSN Messenger file xfer thru ipchains

Hey guys,

Any hints on getting AIM/MSN Messenger file transfers to work thru a nated
ipchians box to internal machines? My friend has a linksys router and
doesn't have any problems, I would think a nated linux box should have the
same capabilities!

Thanks ...

Is it possible to introduce a SOCKS5 server to help you out of this problem ?

See ya

You may need to open up/or implicitly forward the necessary ports need for
file transfer.  I would have ipchains log all the packets that are being
rejected.  This should give you an idea of what you should open up.

Actually, this would be the best solution, however the iptables statements
were fetched from some web page which had a list of iptables commands on it.
Hopefully, it will provide a starting point for the initial poster.

Any URL or Hints how to do this? For MSN Messenger for example?
I want to use file and voice and perhaps features like whiteboard.
Perhaps there is an examle config.

I personally would do a search on google.com for a SOCKS5 server.  I use the
DANTE version, but there are others out there which you can use.  Once you
have your SOCKS server up and running, you should be able to configure MSN
Messenger (I think) to use the SOCKS server.

1. Ipchains: MSN & AOL Messenger Port#s?

Hi all,

I am wondering if anyone knows the ports that AOL and MSN instant
messengers use?

I would like to block users access to these programs with IPCHAINS, but
cant seem to find any good resources on the net about programs and their
port #s?

If anyone knows the ports these use..THANKS SO MUCH, but also if someone
could pass me some web resources that list ports and programs, I would
be soo thankful as I wouldnt have to waiste  your time posting here.

Thanks All
