I have tried all of the all in one messengers. Have been able to use them easily. I use them when im at work, only thing is after a few days, they get blocked by a web filter installed by out IT guy. How do i get around this? And also any new web/all in one messengers anyone know of?December 6, 2007 at 11:34 pm #165638MrEggsaladParticipant
If none of those work, you could potentially try using Jabber transports + one of the various Jabber Clients to connect.December 7, 2007 at 1:22 pm #165641
tried meebo its blocked..and meetro is not accepting any new registrations at the moment..lol..of course.December 10, 2007 at 2:16 pm #165639mikerackMember
I was gonna post make a bigger post about this soon, but just stumbled across Qnext. There's been some traffic about it here before… nothing special. But they just released a new version and looks kinda slick. They say they will be releasing two or three more updates in the next few days, but it might be worth a gander… cross platform and got some interesting media sharing features. qnext.comDecember 14, 2007 at 5:37 pm #165640RU Still DownMember

You can use a webproxy to connect to the outside internet. There's a huge list of web proxies here: https://proxy.org/ Of course, these will most probably not work with meebo — but it doesn't hurt to try.
You can use SOCKS proxies listed here: SOCKS servers lists or see the HTTP proxy list for softwares that only support HTTP proxies: Proxy Lists. Sorted by type. List #1 Of course, these might have been set up by nefarious (even malicious) organizations to log your conversations/ track you online — but so could the proxies above and the links below. Always use encrypted protocols for complete security.
If you wish for your local network administrator to remain ignorant of your practices (this is true unless the administrator has installed malware on the computer you use) use the Tor anonymity network: Tor: anonymity online After some configuration including setting config FascistFirewall to 1, Tor will only connect to nodes that are listening on 443 or 80 — the former being default https — so it looks like you're just browsing encrypted internet.
All of these solutions (with the exception of webproxies listed on proxy.org) require that you reconfigure your software. To find how to configure software search google. for example: configure AIM to use SOCKS proxy – Google Search
If you cannot install software on the computer that you are using or if you can't reconfigure your current web browser to proxy your connections I suggest you look at softwares that can be run from usb disks. List of portable instant messaging softwares Pidgin is a free multiprotocol messenger that can be configured to use HTTP proxies or SOCKS proxies (from Tor or the list on samair.ru) If you want something more lightweight look into MirandaIM (i'm not sure of this software's proxy capabilities).
You might also want to look at connecting to meebo through https https://meebo.com/ because the local network admin might not have blocked it. Also, try using meebo by bypassing DNS: https://184.108.40.206/ others IPs are listed here: forum.meebo.com :: View topic – meebo ip address You can verify that these IPs are indeed owned by meebo (and not an impostor) by using IP Whois from a service like DNSstuff
A list of web instant messengers can be found: https://bigblueball.com/forums/local_links.php?catid=5
I'll include some more here. Note: Some of these do not connect to all of the messenger services.
eBuddy, m.heysan, KoolIM, ILoveIM, Mabber, http://imo.im/, SNIMMER, IMUnitive, MessengerFX, IMhaha, oyco, Communication Tube, http://express.instan-t.com/, and of course, as the above post mentions, Qnext
if you're more adventurous, have highspeed (and fast enough upload speed) internet at home, and want to be regarded as a hero by the rest of your peers try Yafumato. It will help you setup a web messenger of your own. Your IP will most probably change frequently (at least monthly — if not– you can force it to change) and therefore you'll be able to connect no matter how many times your network administrator blocks it. Eventually, either you'll be fired or the network admin will give up.
You might also want to invest in a laptop with a powerful wireless card that has an antenna. This will help you find open wireless networks near your workplace that will allow you to bypass your network admin all together.
Censorship is hard on the internet. Unless the network administrator is looking at each packet himself and is blocking access to all encrypted traffic you should be able to connect to whatever you want to.April 14, 2008 at 11:06 am #165642
the many ip addresses from meebo i was able to use for quite some time..until someone hacked into my pc at work…once it was all figured out by the IT guy..he blocked from me using all those ip addys…are there any other ip addys that i can use, that are not detected by a web filter blocker?..perhaps from any other web clients like IMOim..or anything like that?June 20, 2008 at 1:55 am #165643n1nj4LoMember
Uhmm theres also Gizmo5 All in One Messenger, I've used it… It's kinda touchy about yahoo and offline messages and looks to be more like a Skype all in one messenger where it's main services are VoIP Calling.. But it's pretty nice supports file transfers, video/audio chat and all the other normal little messenger stuff..December 8, 2008 at 6:03 am #165644Chris BaleMember
I've used BigAnt Lan Messenger for 2 years, which is another All-In-One Messenger. You can try this download url:

Try MeGlobe, it's web based, no installs needed and it supports AOL, MSN and Yahoo. It's Free to use and even provides real time language translation to IM.

You could try Digsby. I'm sure you have since you say you've tried most of the big ones, but you can have facebook, myspace, aim, msn, and several other ones all in one program.January 23, 2010 at 7:10 am #165647August 9, 2012 at 11:22 am #165648imported_jeniffermabenMember
