Im a first time user of yahoo and it seem I can not sign in to messebger for a video chat


Make sure you download yahoo messenger and install it correctly. Make sure when u sign in on yahoo messenger you only use id only not @yahoo.com so id would be example "freezerfreeboy" <-- no @yahoo.com. For Cam make sure that you have your webcam connected and or if you don't and your trying to connect to someone who has one... firewall needs to unblock yahoo messenger.

How to chat using telnet in vista


Telnet is not the greatest programme to use for chat. However, Vista does not have telnet enabled as default. To install it go to:

Start menu->Control Panel\Programs\Programs and Features

on left select Turn windows features on and off

After a while a box will appear = look for Telnet Client and select it and press ok

Now go to Start Menu->Programs->Accessories
select Command Prompt
enter telnet and the IP Address of the computer you wish to connect with
-----------------------------------------

However, for chat I would suggest the more traditional chat programmes.

MSN Messenger (Free from Internet)
Yahoo Messenger (Free from Internet)
ICQ Messenger (Free from Internet)
AIM Messenger (Free from Internet)

If most of your email contacts are using Hotmail then use MSN, http://download.live.com/?sku=messenger
if they use AOL then use AIM http://dashboard.aim.com/aim
If they use Yahoo then use Yahoo Messenger http://uk.messenger.yahoo.com/
Otherwise use ICQ http://www.icq.com/

Happy Chatting

Cannot make a full connection to yahoo messanger it shuts down.


Hi,

First please uninstall the yahoo and install the latest version of yahoo messenger from net. Next please follow the step by step troubleshooting if you are still facing the issue:

Instructions Step 1:Reduce echoes by using a headset instead of speakers and a microphone. Place the microphone farther away from the speakers, if possible. Adjust the volume of the speakers and the microphone.
Step 2:Verify your Internet connection speed if your friend's voice sounds choppy. The computer modem speed must be 56K or higher in order to send voices or sounds.
Step 3:Go to "Actions" and "Call Setup" in Yahoo! Messenger if you can't hear, or your friend can't hear you. Test the sound by following the instructions that proceed call setup.
Step 4:Click on the speaker icon in the lower right corner of your computer screen if you want to test the sound manually. Uncheck "Mute," if necessary, and make sure sound levels are above 50 percent.
Step 5:Pick "Preferences" in Yahoo! Messenger if you have trouble with connecting to the voice server. Choose "Connection," then select "No Proxies." Log in to Messenger again to check the voice server.
Tips & Warnings Follow your computer system's instructions for checking or modifying the server's TCP ports. Ports numbered 5050, 443 or 80 must be open for the voice features to work.
Install the audio codec software that comes with Windows. PC calls and voice chat require that the software is enabled on your computer.

Thanks for contacting Fixya.

Yahoo messenger


Sounds like a boot script. Yahoo Chat is a huge security risk to your machine and there isn't much you can do about it. The chat allows code to execute through the chat window to allow graphics and attachments to be seen and embedded during chat.

Personally, I use the java chat client for Yahoo or Trillian and they seem to be immune. But they have limited features too for that very reason. If all you do is chat though, its a safe compromise.
