Hiya, Ive just given gaim a try today for the first time because trillian hasnt
been working. I assumed it has something to do with vista, but now gaim isnt
working as well. When I try to connect it just says 'Available - Connecting'
for a very long time and eventually gives me an error message with:

-------- disconnected

Lost connection with server:
Windows socket error #10053


I thought this might have something to do with the Norton Firewall, but I tried
turning that off. It seems odd to me that I cant get on with either Trillian
or Gaim (btw, I can connect with the AIM Vista Client Beta, but dont make me
use that!)

Any ideas?

Vista Ultimate x64
Gaim 2.0.0beta 6

Thanks so much

That Windows error tends to be a firewall issue, and unfortunately most of the
Windows firewall software tends to be broken in that it doesn't honor its own
settings much of the time. The Wingaim FAQ has a section on specifically how
to configure Norton because it has this problem, furthermore actually disabling
Windows firewalls can be complicated because hitting 'Disable' doesn't always
do it. Have you tried entirely disabling Norton, setting it not to start with
Windows, and then restarting and trying again? That might work, alternatively
you could try the settings in the Wingaim FAQ, and finally you could try uninstalling
Norton entirely.

I agree it seems like a firewall thing, but I can connect to Jabber (gmail)
through gaim and AOL AIM was working. I did try disabling Norton and restarting...no
good.

In fact, just to be sure, I've uninstalled Norton (and Windows Firewall is off),
but still not working?!

So I've now discovered I cant connect to MSN either. Tried Trillian, Miranda,
Windows Live Messenger, AOL AIM and Gaim. The only one that connects is the
AOL client (I can connect to Jabber in all clients tho, but not AIM or MSN).
Can anyone offer any ideas?

Having disabled and uninstalled Norton, and having disabled Windows Firewall
(and not having any other firewall software running) you still can't connect
and you are still getting the #10060/#10053 error? Do you have antivirus software
running (I don't know that this can interfere but you never know)?

So last friday, for absolutely no apparent reason Trillian worked. I got onto
AIM, MSN, Jabber and Rendezvous and all was right in the world.

Ever since then, I havent been able to get on anything (not even Jabber/Rendezvous
that was working before)---WAIT A SECOND...

As I was sitting here writing this post it suddenly worked, only AIM though.
Ha ha, this is nuts...

[05:22] *** Creating connection "USERNAME"
[05:24] *** Lost connection to network (Error Code: 10053).
[05:25] *** Reconnecting to AIM as "USERNAME".
[05:25] *** Will attempt 10 connections with 60 second intervals.
[05:25] *** Connecting to AIM as "USERNAME", attempt #1.
[05:27] *** Lost connection to network (Error Code: 10053).
[05:27] *** Reconnecting to AIM as "USERNAME".
[05:27] *** Will attempt 10 connections with 60 second intervals.
[05:27] *** Connecting to AIM as "USERNAME", attempt #1.
[05:27] *** You have successfully connected to AOL Instant Messenger.

Yeah, uh, WTF?

In case anyone ever comes here with a similar issue. I've resolved it with a
driver update. Though not supplied by ASUS (my mobo maker) I got the Vista x64
nVIDIA Networking Controller drivers from nVIDIA:
http://www.nvidia.com/object/nforce_680i_sli_winvista64_15.00.html

Of course, I still really have no idea what the problem was, but it is a PC
after all! I think I remember why I use a Mac at home.
