MSN Messenger and Windows Live Messenger

Natively uses port 1863 and bypasses the Squid proxy. But when that has been locked down by the firewall admin it will failover to port 80 and enter Squid.


Microsoft This is only confirmed to work with MSN Messenger and Windows Live Messenger if there is any other parts to the formal name its maybe another program completely with different access needs.
