    everytime I try to login to windos live messenger, i get the whole
    troubleshooting thing. So i troubleshoot, repair my key port, but the
    keyport doesnt actually repair! Also MSN Explorer keeps on popping up
    if i try to sign into it, and the same happens with IE7!

    Hi everyone, i have the same problem and tryed many things and msn is still not working, like uninstalling it and reinstalling it, download ccleaner and fix the errors on my computer, runing certain weird codes on the start menu and it appears that it ran succesfully but still have the same problem, i can t log in to my msn. Appearently the problems are the key ports and hosts file, at least thats what it says. by the way the error code that appears when i try to log in to the msn is 80072efd

    if someone has the solution i'll really appreciate it

    I also have the constant log in/out, in/out, in/out issue with Live Messenger since the upgrade to the 2009 version. I have tried EVERYTHING the MSN support emailed me, plus everything our IT guy had in his magic tricks book, and everything you guys said above - nothing works! It is so extremely annyoing. I have not been able to connect to any of contacts in almost 3 weeks!

  • anabannana Apr 07, 2009

    My internet works perfectly sometimes...
    It says I have a strong connection but it drops ones and a while, sometimes it gets so bad that It disconnects every 10 seconds. Normally I end up restarting it once or twice before it's okay again.
    It's probably because my internet isn't very stong and can't handle when Internet Explorer and Msn is open. That is normally when it tends to screw up.
    The main issue with my internet connection is that it says it's connected but the little computer icons are grey which means something isn't connecting properly...
    So normally when I go to sign in msn that stupid code thing comes up, so when I press troubleshoot it shows me that "key ports" are the problem. If it's not the key ports normally I can fix the problem by reconnecting.. but I don't know what to do for key ports..
    Like I don't know what causes the problem, I tried fixing the firewall settings and proxy settings no luck. HELP!

I had the same problem and I tried everything I found in all kind of forums but nothing every seems to work.
What it worked for me was:

First:

Clear your proxy settings in Internet Explorer:

  1. Start Internet Explorer.
  2. On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
  3. On the Connections tab, click LAN Settings.
  4. Clear the Automatically detect settings check box.
  5. Click OK, and then click OK again.
Then:

Check Internet Explorer security settings:
  1. Start Internet Explorer.
  2. On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
  3. On the Advanced tab, in the Security section, make sure that the Check for server certificate revocation check box is cleared. Also, make sure that the Use SSL 2.0 and the Use SSL 3.0 check boxes are selected.
  4. Click OK.
Apply Changes.
Close Internet Explorer

Run Windows Live Messenger and You Are Ready To Chat Again!!

Try connecting to this URL:
http://status.messenger.msn.com/Status.aspx

If you can connect, then there are several different things that could be wrong:

I use CP. What worked for me was Start > Run

netsh interface tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled


Done.


Restart messenger.


If that doesn't work, try

Start > Run
Type:
regsvr32 Softpub.dll Mssip32.dll Initpki.dll

Wait for all three boxs to popup confirmation.

If that doesn't work:

Start > Run

timedate.cpl

Internet Time Tab

Update Now Button.

After sync, try again.

I hope that fixes everyone's problems. I've never had this problem until I installed the latest Messenger.

Are you using a router? if so, it's possible that your router has firewall that is blocking the connection. you can try to open/forward port 1863.
if you have other computers on your network, check if they are having the same problem. if not, a firewall software or an antivirus software is blocking the connection. try to disable any firewall or any antivirus software on the concerned computer and check if you'll be prompted with the same error message.

hope this'll help you

ciao!

Im using yahoo messenger 11 and couldn't log in. i follow the trouble shoot instruction and its been 2 days now, still cant sign in to yahoo.


If you have a personal firewall turned on, temporarily disable it and try again. If still not working, you may need to enable either UPnP support in your router, or setup a virtual server in your router to let the IP address and port of IM to get through. Most consumer grade routers explain their respective process in the user guide..

Cannot send out e-mail. error code 5106 0x8De00006 on windows live messenger


Hi Friend,

To fix this problem kindly follow the steps:

1.Before proceeding be sure to backup your email in your Windows Live Mail Client.
2.Open your Windows Live Mail Client.
3.On the toolbar click on "Tools", and go to "Accounts".
4.In the accounts window click on "add". Select email account, and click on "next".
5.Enter your email address you are having problems with, your correct password, and display name.
6.Before you click the next button, click "Manually configure server settings for email account. Now click Next.

Be sure that POP3 is the server.

7.For incoming server enter: pop3.live.com and for outgoing enter: smtp.live.com.
8.Select "This server requires a secure connection (SSL), and "My outgoing server requires authentication".
9.Click next, then click finish.

This will now create you a new email account, and box. You can choose to copy, or move all your email, and delete the previously closed box, or keep both.

I hope this will resolve the issue.

Regards
Chiranjeet

Msn key ports will not fix!


Dear Friend,
First of all, always check the status of your web browser before signing in to windows hotmail messenger.That means that if you try to sing in, be sure that work offline mode in your browser is not checked.Secondly, have you run the MSN MESSENGER port configuration?Third and most important, have you opened the ports in your firewall?
Here is the list of thee ports that MSN Messenger uses:
1366 MSN Messenger
1367 MSN Messenger
1838 : TCP MSN Messenger (Gamevoice)
1863 : TCP/UDP MSN Messenger primary (incoming)
5190 : UDP MSN Messenger (incoming)
6891 : TCP MSN Messenger Filetransfer (incoming) - ports 6891 - 6900, one port per file transfer
6901 : TCP/UDP MSN Messenger Voice Telephony (incoming)

5004 : UDP MSN Messenger, ports 5004-65535. Used for AUDIO and VIDEO. Caution: securty risc! Do not open ALL these ports!
5004 : UDP MSN messenger (dynamically uses a port in this range 5004 – 65535 - requires uPNP in your NAT router and/or firewall). Used for AUDIO and VIDEO. See Microsoft website for details....

Good Luck!
