Windows 2003 Server has installed all updates that Windows Update indicate.

The MSN transport was working fine, in a moment the service was down and the message was displayed in the openfire window. I stop and start the openfire server, but not working, the client (spark), show the msn icon in gray color, delete the login information of the hotmail account and enter the login information again, but not show the contacts define in the hotmail account that I use to test the transport.

I test the trasnport using a telnet: telnet 1863 and works.

I test connect to messenger using the microsoft messenger, i get on line, and after start spark in other computer enter the login information, and the messenger session closed and send the message that the connection was closed because other session was started in other computer.

Can you help me.

same in Canada. noticed Aug 5/08.

Confirmed! Since yesterday morning (5 Aug) the MSN-Transport doesn’t work anymore. Reloading the plugin brings up nothing. Whats wrong here?

Edit: Update to the latest version, 1.2.3a, of the IM Gateway plugin to get rid of it :wink:
