ICQ: Can't chat!

Icq's doing my goat! Lately (though no sys changes i can think of) my ICQ's been giving me this message after attempting for a while to start a chat session:

"Can't establish DIRECT Connection to user"

Never had it before, ICQ support is useless, very annoyed.

Anyone help please? :wink:

cheers all

  2. Nope.

    I didn't fix this problem until yesterday (just been using normal msg instead).

    My system config's totally changed, but now i have a router&cablemodem&LAN arrangement and when i open up the default ports, it all works fine.

    Still would like to work out what the problem was tho'

  3. What version of ICQ are u using? I think its a firewall problem with older versions of ICQ. I use to use 99a and had the same problem and now i'm using 2000a. My setup was adsl/lan/router(with firewall enabled).
