    I want to know, what are the needed ports just for standard operation on MSN messenger? I use Trillian, and I do not know which ports to allow to let MSN go out...

    Hi Comp01

    For basic IM feature you will require outbound to remote port 1863.
    Some features (logins) will likely also require outbound to remote ports 80 & 443.

    That should cover the basics.

    Regards,
