Downloaded messenger for mac version 7.0.1.  I'm able to connect to my VPN but Messenger wont connect to the SIP server.  I can ping the server and can surf the LAN just fine.  Mac Messenger just won't connect.  It works just fine on a PC.   Error is "Sign in failed because either the username or password is incorrect, or does not exist" I am using the exact same settings that i do on my windows box.  

I'm running OCS 2007 R2.

I enabled remote access for the user but it still didn't work.  Do I need to setup an edge server?  Any other suggestions?
