I know we have KB69000 showing how to set up MWG to work with Windows Live Messenger. The KB article explains how you basically have to setup the IM proxy to get your IM Client communicate through MWG instead of directly connecting to the IM servers. Maybe it helps you to start.
There is no dedicated documentation about Yahoo that I am aware of at the moment.
I've read this article and I've configured MWG7 and Yahoo client the way as it is described in knowledgebase. But whenever I try to login the client application crashes(i'm using last version of Yahoo downloaded from Yahoo web site). Ive tested it on diffrent computers diffrent os (xp, win7) . What version of Yahoo client was tested with MWG 7?
that sounds really strange. Are you able to send me a quick Screenshot showing the issue you are facing and the Version of the Yahoo Messenger you are using?
I had that problem once when I misconfigured the proxy settings as an HTTP proxy instead of a SOCKS. Totally unrelated to what your doing, but perhaps it has to do with your proxy settings and how they are configured.
When i try to login the application crashes an appears msgbox "Yahoo Messenger has stopped working"
Yahoo proxy enabled (default properties), settings comming form IE proxy settings.
Mwg 7 inserts its own address into CS_IP_Address line.
I am somehow able to connect to Yahoo Messenger with MWG in between.
What I did is:
- Install Yahoo Messenger 10.0.0.1270-de on a blank Windows XP machine
- Turn off the default GW for my XP machine, so it cannot connect directly to the Internet
- Pick a MWG 18.104.22.168, default configuration + Yahoo Messenger Proxy activated
- Modify the Windows XP local hosts file:
- Configure 192.168.0.1:9090 as my Proxy Server in internet Explorer
- Create a Rule that skips URL Filtering for
URL.Host matches *.msg.yahoo.com
URL.Host equals login.yahoo.com
I then restarted the Yahoo Messenger and it connected fine. I can see some data flowing through MWG. Probably there is some more work needed but at least I can basically connect. Unfortunately I do not have any contacts to check if everything is working, but connections seems to be ok.
Is anyone interested/able to perform the same steps and give it a try?
Hi Andre, I have the same problems and did somethings you suggested but no result. Any new for this? MWG 7.1, Yahoo: 10. Thanks!
I try to use the way, but It's not work~
MWG 22.214.171.124 proxy mode and NTLM auth. with yahoo mesanger 11
(import default policy set "Try-Auth")
I use "authentication_server" policy from mcafee, it's work, but
you have to notice two thing:
1.refer the "IE-AuthServer.doc", make sure check the option"Automatic logon with current username and password"
and "Use HTTP 1.1 through proxy connections" on IE.
2.enable "use proxy server to connect internet" and "HTTP proxy server" on yahoo messanger.
