    so the isa server is set to block these chat programs. you cant sign on. is there a way around this?

    will a program like trillian work? does it go through their own server or do they just relay it for you?

    i tried imrelay but its too slow. any other suggestions?

    And AIM has AIM Express, which runs off the browser as well, java enabled.

    Otherwise use a proxy, or you're SOL.
