i have a problem with windows live messenger 8 beta. I cannot log in on to work station machines, but some older versions of win msn and windows messenger works without any problems. I think that the policies are created as they should be, becouse everything else work without any problems. I use for internet PPPOE connection. Does anyone knows what could be a problem? I'll buy a beer to some who can help me

I am also facing the same problem, Windows Live messenger was working fine with Broad band cable connection, but once I switched to PPPoE Connection, it is unable to sign in. Windows Messenger (built in messenger in Windows XP PRo) is able to logon, MSN Messenger 7.x is also able to login if I disable TCP connection and enable HTTP proxy. unfortunately I could not disable TCP settings for Windows Live messenger.
NAT is enabled on PPPoE interface.
help will be appreciated.
first of all don't forget buy my beer and send it by DHL
