I have setup a test lab for E2K IM. I installed a separate Win2K server in the test AD Domain; all the latest updates etc. Installed the IM portion of the installation. I ran SP3 on the new server and and reapplied SP3 on the current E2K server that hosts email only. In SM i setup the new virtual server for IM using rvp protocol, added the SRV record to my DNS server. All looks good. i then try to logon to an IM session using MSN Messenger; email address of user that has IM rights and password on domain, but it keeps coming to back to the login, no errors just does not connect to IM server internally. I have googled and searched MS site for remedies or even troubleshooting tools, but nothing seems to point to this problem. Under SM and the new IM Virtual Server, i setup as home to house the user accounts, but cannot see anything under the IM virtual server, nothing in the imdata directory either. Can i create another virtual IM server in the same location? All help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I’m pretty sure you can’t use MSN Messenger, you have to use the Windows Messenger. MSN Messenger doesn’t support RVP. Download Windows Messenger 5.0 (or 5.1) they both support SIP, RVP and .NET service.
