Allow MSN Messenger when using Parental Controls Internet
If you activate parental control, MSN Messenger is not going to work. Some can argue that you can use other solutions, but your Kids will argue that this what their friends use. To get MSN Messenger working, you need to authorize at least messenger.hotmail.com, but I discovered that Adium is using more Microsoft servers, and as the list is quite long, here is a way to simply authorize MSN Messenger on a managed account with parental controls.
  1. In the Parental Controls System Preferences panel, go to the Content tab and choose the 'Try to limit ...' option.
  2. Click on Customize and allow MSN Messenger's server by adding the following addresses: http://messenger.hotmail.com, http://*.*.msn.com, and https://*.*.msn.com.
That should allow full MSN Messenger functionality. However, if you need something more granular and you want to control every address, this Microsoft support page lists all the addresses used by MSN Messenger.
