I cannot login to yahoo massenger with my any account as it comes sign in problem or forgot your password and try again...and it works with yahoo mail i can access but it fails when i logon to messenger?


Odds are that your firewall is blocking Yahoo Messenger from connecting to the login server. You will need to make an exception in your firewall to allow the program to connect.

If you aren't sure what firewall you're using, then you're probably using the default Windows Firewall.

You didn't specify what operating system you're using, so here are separate instructions for different versions of Windows:

Windows Vista or Windows 7

Click Start -> Control Panel -> System and Security -> Windows Firewall -> Allow a program or feature through Windows Firewall

Then click Change Settings.

Now scroll down and find Yahoo Messenger and make sure it is checked and allowed.

Finally, click OK.

Windows XP:

Instructions for Windows XP would be a little different, but basically you would just go to Start -> Control Panel, find the Windows Firewall, and then make sure Yahoo Messenger is allowed there. Slightly different process for how to get to the Windows Firewall, but it's essentially the same.

If none of that works, double check to make sure you typed your password in correctly.

Works on my ipod but on ps3 keeps saying ip address has timed out


You may have to check your Windows firewall and also the router firewall settings to allow the device to work.
1. Windows firewall instruction found in the "Security systems" > "Windows firewall" > "Allow a program through Windows Firewall".
2. check your router user manual for the firewall settings for the router.

My computer told me to check my firewall. How can I bring it in?


HI. It all depends on what type of firewall you have activated. There is a Windows native firewall that is standard issued with your OS. There is also what I call a stand alone independent firewall that will be an integrated part of your aftermarket virus program. That firewall can be pulled up by double clicking on your virus software icon on the bottom right hand corner of the task-bar. Once you have pulled up that window; Navigate through the options to gain access to the fire wall settings to check the status.

Now; to access the windows native firewall, start by clicking on the control panel link in your start menu. Once the control panel has opend, Double right click on the Windows Firewall icon in the list. Once the icon is clicked; you will see the Windows Firewall window pop up. You can check the status of the native firewall there, among other options, as well.

Firewall


You may find out that Norton is causing the block and not the firewall. To disable the Windows firewall do the following:


1) Click on Start then control panel
2) Click on Windows Firewall
3) Click on the Exceptions tab and see if Windows Live is listed and checked.
4) If not, click add program and add Windows Live

If it is there and checked then you can disable the firewall by clicking on the General tab and selecting Off from the firewall screen.
4) Finally, click OK

If none of this works then try turning off Norton. If that lets you log in then you will need to add Windows Live as an exception to Norton.

Good luck

Firewalls


If you want to disables Vista’s FIREWALL then you need to go into your Windows Security Center (you can easily turn ‘off’ the firewall from there).
Click Start and click Control Panel.
Click Security and then select Windows Firewall.
Click Change Settings.
From the window that appears, click the Advanced tab.
Remove the check beside the connection that you want to disable the Windows Firewall for.
Click OK.
