Trillian's proxy

My company uses a HTTPS proxy. The msn messenger works using the default browser's HTTP proxy settings server and only the trillian doesn't connect to internet.
The trillian proxy settings does not seem to support this. Does anybody know if there is any way to get either of this working behind HTTPS proxy?
What can I do for trillian to work?

Thanks in advance,
Anarida

Greetings, anarida!

Make sure you have the lastest update patches from Trillian. The new patches may help you connect better.

I have the latest update patches from Trillian. It works only connected through dial-up. why the messenger works connected to the internet through a non firewall and the trillian doesnt? My company has a VPN network.

Thank you very much,

Yes, I checked the proxy setting in Trillian and I did try everything there... Unfortunately, it doesn't work. Why??? The our internet server is in another city than where I work and maybe our administator put a restriction for some ports?
Thank you very much for help, war1

I have the same problem and only solution I have come up with is the fact that Trillian doesn't work because of restricted ports. In my company, it is company policy to use MSN Messenger, so the ports necessary for MSN are open. (don't know which they are...)

If I want to use IQC, I have to use ICQ2Go (applet-based ICQ-over-HTTP).

I use gaim (gaim.sourceforge.net), but from what I gather they work pretty closely with the Trillian developers.

Anyway, I had the same problem of trying to get out from behind a firewall.  What I ended up doing was downloading AOL instant messenger, which had a feature to try to scan the ports for a way out (I think it was auto configure or something).  It found a port that worked, then I applied that port to gaim.  I didn't have a problem after that.

Another way is to use a personal firewall like ZoneAlarm.  Then just play around with the settings so that it logs a blocked message from the MSN client (ungrant its permissions while it is running).  The port number should be logged along with the program name (MSN) and IP address.

Hope this helps, Good luck
