    Can anyone recommend a good instant messaging application that can be used with on a proxy network. I would like to use msn and/or gtalk on my macbook in college but you need to input certain settings to use it on the network.

    I would like a program i can use and change the proxy settings, i have tried using the one with Microsoft messenger but it doesn't seem to work.

    If you don't have to rely on it as a primary client for all your instant messaging, I would suggest meebo.com. It is browser-based and you therefore don't have to set up that proxy thing. Gabtastik is an app to log in to meebo in a separate window.

    Without side tracking this topic, I have a half related question.

    At my University there is a wireless network over the campus which has a proxy, and it is auto detected by my Mac. It is designed to only allow web browsing, however Windows Live Messenger also works.

    Messenger:Mac doesn't work, however if I boot up Parallel's Desktop, I can sign in using Windows Live Messenger.

    What gives?
