Re: configuring yahoo messenger

There are two possible scenarios.

1. If you are using the Windows version of Yahoo Messenger then go to
the connection settings and select Firewall with proxy and yahoo
messenger will merrily work with the http protocol.

2. AFAIK this doesnt work in case of the unix client. In that case you
need to configure the firewall to allow outgoing connections to port
5050. That would obviously depend on what you are using as firewall.

ipchains -A forward -s <your ip address> -d 0/0 5050 -p tcp -j MASQ
