#2278 closed defect

[MSN]Connexion error while sending an URL

Reported by: Diti Owned by: datallah
Milestone: Component: winpidgin (gtk)
Version: 2.0.2 Keywords: MSN URL
Cc: louipc

Description

When I try to send an URL on MSN protocol (in Linux or Windows), a message (I translated it) is sent :

Impossible to send message due to connexion problems

(Note : I'm trying to make a portable version of Pidgin in order to implement it on Framakey.org, but this bug don't come from this.

MSN blocks many URLS (and other strings) as a 'protection' mechanism, does any URL get through? Are you trying to send something with 'dowload.php' in it?

This bug is still present in 2.5.3 Any url I send with mine.nu or ath.cx is blocked

(15:06:28) Serenity Now! - Loui: http://something.mine.nu (15:06:28) Message was not sent because an unknown encoding error occurred. http://something.mine.nu (15:07:08) Serenity Now! - Loui: http://something.ath.cx (15:07:08) Message was not sent because an unknown encoding error occurred. http://something.ath.cx

It's really annoying when I want to point a friend to something on my home server.

MSN is known to block certain URLs, if those are on the list (we don't know what the list is, try asking Google) there is nothing we can do about it.
