Description of problem:
licq-1.0.3-7 can't directly send messages to users using Windows 2001b clients.
They have to be sent through the ICQ servers.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Send an ICQ message to a user using a Windows 2001b client
Actual Results: licq reports a handshake error and offers to send the message
through the ICQ servers.
Expected Results: The message should have been delivered to the user.
Having to send a message through the ICQ servers isn't a good workaround, due to
messages frequently being delivered weeks late or not at all (this is true of
any message sent through the server, regardless of client).
I recall hearing that AOL changed the protocol slightly recently. It may be
that this has already been fixed in a newer version.
I can not reproduce this: What is Windows 2001b?
Does this happen with an official Windows version, too?
Closed due to user inactivity.
