PC1, PC2(windowsxp)
PC with proxy (win2000server)
ADSL router - thompson speedTouch 546(i) v6 adsl modem

Instant messaging communication between PC1 and PC2 works only as chat.
I try msn live messenger, yahoo messenger, google talks, icq and result is the same. Chat is working well but voice comunication doesn't working.
What can i do to fix the problem?

chat works over http when the correct ports aren't available...voice communications and other p2p services will require the appropriate ports forwarded through the proxy server and router or else they will fail

Voice chat ports 5000-5010 (yahoo) and live messenger voice ports will need to be forwarded to both computers through each firewall.

The live messenger voice ports given in the above post which were from this site (http://www.plevna.f9.co.uk/messengers/blockwindowslivemessenger.htm) are incorrect but i will try to find the correct ports.
