Windows Live Messenger Port Issue

My Windows 7 user can't log into Windows Live Messenger (Version 2009 Build 14.0.8117.416).  I have allowed Instant Messaging, Messaging and Social Networking.  When we run the test it tells that the ports are blocked.  How to i give access?

Re: Windows Live Messenger Port Issue

Check if your firewall has the port 1863 open to the web proxy, also you must redirect in the host file or dns. also you need to enable the live messnger proxy.
