Install a personal server for iChat to MSN/Yahoo gateway
Authored by: mikedfunk on Nov 12, '07 09:04:21AM

I could not get this to work. When I typed in my password it popped up another authentication box. Password didn't work in that box. Same thing for all IM accounts on all services.

Install a personal server for iChat to MSN/Yahoo gateway

try combos of :

username
username@machinename (no domain)
username@machinename.domainname

in my examples:
mark
mark@technobear
mark@technobear.local

there seems to be an oddity that ichat insists in the setup account tab to need domainname i.e. user@machinename.domainname BUT it doesnt on the authenticaion dialog which then populates that tab :)
