Hi, me again :-)
would anyone happen to know how to get icq to work from behind the
netbsd firewall? one of my client machines works with icq with it's
installed default settings while another one does not. no matter what
i do, it will appear to connect to the icq servers but does not
populate the list. then after a while, it disconnects claiming that it
cannot find a connection to the net (this after it already said it was
connected and able to communicate with the icq servers).
i checked my settings on the machine that it does work on and
compaired them to the other. they match exactly. yet one works, the
other does not. i have also tried variuos configurations to no avail.
all the icq help files and message boards i have checked have
suggestions for other firewalls and proxies, but i have found none
relating to NetBSD.
both clients are setup identicly:
icq2003a -> 2 Win2k sp2+all hotfixes -> one cheap hub -> NetBSD 1.5
firewall from http://www.dubbele.com -> cable modem.
I would think that if it were a firewall misconfiguration, it should
block both clients.
any help would be apreciated.
