    Yahoo msngr 7.0 beta

    i am using yahoo msngr 7.0 beta version...it has got a computer call feature(VOIP) thru a microphn.
    i use proxy settings to get connected.when it asks for the settings i go for http proxy(the other option is SOCKS).
    but when i make an attempt to call another computer it says i am behind a firewell(which i m not..neither is my proxy server).is it due to a proxy setting or its smthng else?i went for the help pages but cudnt find nethng helpful.

    thanx in advance

    um...a proxy server is a firewall...you need to open up a port. Let us know if you don't know how to.
    PHP and XML

    I dont know how to open a port...one more issue is there..i use ccproxy(a proxy server application) at my server side...its help page says that it does not support VOIP in yahoo msngr...will opening a port
    manualy solve this?

    I've never used ccproxy, but it should have help pages on how to open a port. As for your VOIP in ymsg, I really couldn't say. Try opening the port first, if it doesn't work, then it probably requires the usage of a protocol that ccproxy blocks (like VPN connections require certain ports along with protocol 47 aka GRE).

    I don't use windows servers as proxies, I would recommend linux or *bsd. Most leading distros have packages that can be configured during the initial install that will make the box a proxy with little or no extra configuration. You can give that a shot, if you like. However if you get ccproxy to work you might as well leave it.

    Let me know if you need anything else.

    i looked up ccproxy's help pages..it says it dosent support yahoo msngrs VOIP as yet.
    may be switching over to a better proxy application wud help.

    not as much familiar wid linux stuff...though wud like to knw if a windows network can be accessed thru linux(heard of samba client but dnt have a clue hw to make it work)..bcause the server side is running winXP.

    thanx waldo2k2...u were quite helpful.

    most distro's will set up samba for you. If you just want to try running knoppix (bootable linux cd) it will automatically configure samba for you. It's completely seamless. Linux see's windows shares and windows will see linux shares. No configuration is required there. Good luck.
