Set up a connection to the IM server

To be able to communicate with other users, receive personal, group, news messages and files and send that messages and transfers you need to specify IM server name. Usually it is a computer name or IP address which is accessible to you from your LAN or corporate network. If you do not know a name or address of your server, please contact your system or administrator or manager.

You can specify a server name within the Connection Setup Wizard. To run the wizard select the "Tools\Connection Setup Wizard..." from the main menu. This wizard automatically starts on your first startup of the program, or when the messenger cannot connect to IM server.
