alright, the network i am using has access to the aol instant messenger service blocked, I do not have access to the servers filtering the traffic. Is there another way around this or a server i could connect to to jump to the aol server?
If he has the port blocked then you need to download trillian and change the local port. If he has login.oscar.aol.com >> 126.96.36.199 blocked then your screwed. Look into HTTP tunnels and proxy tunnels, which is well published and there is lots of software. If I get bord in college I might write a little overview and crap but right now I'm tired and haven't done my fucking coursework and if I don't get it done then I'll fail the course I am running out of time! God I'm such a lazy bastard ahh
I'm not sure what your knowledge of networking is like, but basically you can tunnel through http. Good software is Httport from
it will let you tunnel any data through an SSL enabled web proxy. It even has presets for some messengers I believe.
I'm actually uploading a very good paper on HTTP tunneling to my website right now.
