I'm having a problem getting Adium 1.1.3 to connect to MSN under Leopard. It keeps trying to connect for ages but never actually does, eventually giving me a "Reading Error" message. I did a clean install of Leopard and Adium was the first thing I installed.

Any Ideas?

I'm having the same problem, and I had a look at that page, but can't find what i need to do.

How do I fix this problem?

Set your own DNS-Servers, under Network "Advanced..." --> DNS e.g.

208.67.222.222
&
208.67.220.220

Normally only your Router will be listed.

then:

sudo dscacheutil -flushcache

After this, start Adium and enjoy ;)

I know this is a long time afterwards, but I'm having the same problem and none of the fixes I can find online (the DNS etc, the using HTTP method etc) work. This is really annoying as my MSN account is quite important!!
