Connect to AOL on port 80 results in "oscar - Couldn't log in: FLAP framing disrupted"

Description

Because of a firewall at work, I connect to AOL over port 80 and up until this week it worked swimmingly with bitlbee.

Now, when I try to login I get the following: oscar - Couldn't log in: FLAP framing disrupted

I'm running: bzr-ui-fix-730

How did you tell it to connect via port 80 BTW, by setting server to something:80?

Nothing that smart. I just modified aim.h to use port 80 instead of 5190 and recompiled.

Heh, ok. :-)

I just tried this out, and it still works for me for both ICQ and AIM. Are you still seeing this problem? And you don't see it via port 5190?

Possibly your network is now doing some transparent proxying or something, which would break the port 80 trick.

Yeah, you are probably (obviously?) right. I just tried it out on a different network with the same results as yours. Sorry for the noise.

No problem. I'll close the bug then.

The only thing that is still unexplained to me is that I didn't get this error msg when connecting to a webserver; the thing sends nothing so the module just blocks.

Have you tried making BitlBee connect to AOL via the HTTP proxy server? (HTTP CONNECT) See your bitlbee.conf.
