product compatibility with im.novell.com

Sorry, I wasn't able to find a fitting forum topic and phone/chat reps just pointed me to the forum.

One of my company's customers is having problems connecting to IM.NOVELL.COM (port 443) through a proxy. I was wondering how we could get a demo or trial account to test with on the same service.

Instead, would it be the same as running Novell Messenger server with specific configurations, so we can do it all in house?

Thanks!

Novell uses Novell Messenger which is an Enterprise-grade Instant Messaging system and is currently configured for internal use only. You can however download an eval version of Novell Messenger from here: NOVELL: Downloads - Novell Messenger 2.2 Evaluation Also, if you have a license for Novell GroupWise you are entitled to run Novell Messenger. You would then setup your own evaluation Messenger system. The current version of Novell Messenger is 2.2. You can access the Messenger forum here: GW: Messenger

Re: product compatibility with im.novell.com

I have installed eDirectory, Novell Client, ClientOne, and Novell Messenger Server on one windows machine, and Novell Messenger Windows Client on another machine.
I would like to know the primary differences between the Novell Messenger Server install I have and the service at im.novell.com which uses port 443 (HTTPS) instead of 8300.

Would making our messenger server run on port 443 be the same, or are there some extra configurations and security used?

The default port Messenger uses is 8300; here at Novell we have configured it to use port 443 for firewall reasons. That is the only difference.
