#481 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Patch for supporting variable msn host/port.

I'm using SimpServer [1] on my linux box for encrypting MSN traffic. SimpServer sets up a SOCKS proxy, as well as a fake 'direct connection' for MSN traffic, and different ones per protocol.

I couldn't find a way of making this work, and found that msn.c had the hostname/port hardcoded. This patch fixes that.

The only thing about this patch, now that I think about it, is that it doesn't modify the default .conf file to include the appropriate section heading. It should look like this:

# [msn] # # port=1863

Sorry, but that patch is absolutely unsuitable. Why make the MSN server name a server-wide setting? That way, all users on the BitlBee server will be able to use just that MSN server.

Instead, you could make it a per-account setting (actually easier to implement than a global setting) so users can even have both a normal MSN account and one on the usual server, at the same time.

This might have made a little bit of sense before MSNP13, but now it has way too many servers in different addresses for something like this to work.

And simpserver is dead.

(Sorry for having this ticket open for so long and suddenly closing it now!)
