Bypassing Yahoo and MSN on ISA Server

I have ISA 2000 configured in proxy mode, working as a URL filter. Now i have purchased a Instant messenger Managing software to manage MSN trafic which uses Socks 5. Both are installed on the same server. When i configure proxy address in IE my entire MSN traffic is blocked by ISA, otherwise it is OK. I tried by istalling IM software on another server but no luck. Either I want to bypass ISA for Yahoo and MSN or how can i enable IM traffic based on user accounts on ISA. I tried by adding content filtering but i can only do with IP address. I dont want any user autentication, if i try with domain user accounts ISA always asking password. Is there any seeting to filter ISA trafic based on user accounts without any authentication. I dont want use Client sets. I have fed up with MS ISA. Dont send me any isaserver.org link to block IM's. I need a proper solutions.

you can set your IE to 'automatic logon in intranet zone only' (tools, internet options, security, custom at the bottom)

Maybe this will help. It should stop the 'enter you password' bits popping up.

Also, make sure that you open the following ports, on your firewall/proxy, outgoing and incoming, to allow not only connection to the service, but also, all messages to go trough.


File Transfer
6891-6900 (TCP – dynamic)
6891-6900 (TCP – dynamic)
 
MSN Messenger Service
1863 (TCP)

Well, I think that my answer should deserve some points, as he now has the specific ports for MSN, and the link to Microsoft is specific to MSN and Yahoo on ISA Server.. At least, if it did not resolve the problem, it would have been nice to know, I would have searched for more settings..
