Default Don't get a connect with Messenger 6.1 under WinXP Prof....

Hello NG!
Now i upgraded from Messenger 4.7 witch has run realy uncomplecated under
WinXP Prof. (with all updates and patches) to Mesenger 6.1.

I don't get a connect to the messenger service behind NAT router and a
firewall (Norton 2002) but with Messenger 4.7 it worked.

Error Message is: "it seems to be a Problem with your Internet-connection
Failure 0x81000306"

In NAT router port 1863 is enabled and in Norton Firewall Messenger 6.1 has
a permit-state.

Does anyone know a solution?
Thank you!

Greetings Karl,

Here are some suggestions you might want to check/try:

1. The date on your computer needs to be set properly -- double click the clock verify that
the time and date are set.
2. If your password information is not saved, verify that you are typing it in with the
correct case (uppercase or lowercase).
3. Change your password @ http://memberservicesnet.passport.co...erservice.srf, then try
signing in again.
4. If you use a firewall (like ZoneAlarm, Norton Internet Security etc. ), it's possible
that Messenger doesn't have the correct rights to access the Internet, especially since you
upgraded. You may need to re/add Messenger to the allowed list of programs in your firewall
if this is the case.
5. If you disabled your firewall in the past, it still may be blocking Messenger -- try
restarting it and see if that helps the situation. You also might try uninstalling an
installed firewall, to verify that it isn't causing a problem (even if it is disabled).
6. Clear your IE cache and cookies -- open Internet Explorer, click the Tools menu, then
Internet Options, then click the Delete Files button, and when that's complete click the
Delete Cookies button.
7. Check your IE Security settings -- open Internet Explorer, click the Tools menu, then
Internet Options, then Advanced tab, scroll to the Security section, and verify that "Check
for server certificate revocation" is unchecked. Also verify that 'Use SSL 2.0' and Use SSL
3.0' is checked, then click OK.
8. Click Start, then Run, and enter the following:
regsvr32 softpub.dll
then click OK

Then try again.
