huh? the white screen problem only happens with mac users, and that's caused by the mac's firewall!

well it seems there are Windows users with this issue also...possibly a very different cause?

Hello,

I'm using 0.97RC1 of aMSN on Windows XP SP2. Few days ago, my webcam was working perfectly, online. Then, i activated the router function of my modem and i got a white screen as a webcam picture sent to my contacts. I routed ports 6891 to 6900 in both TCP and UDP and the "You are behind a router !" message went out. But i still have the white screen when i send my cam to my contacts... The cam is working perfectly on Windows Live Messenger, though - but i heard that a library that runs webcam was included in WLM's programming language (C# ?) and not TCL.

Any idea ?

Thanks in advance.


I know this was dated Aug 07 but others have reported thsi recently also and I had it for a few SVN revisions until I updated to r9550 last week. I made no port forwarding or triggering changes recently other than for an ftp server I installed last week and for vnc 2 months ago.

wel I did, I thought I had to tell you guys that it happened on my vista too lately, not that it's that a big deal for me because of this:
although I am able to have a cam session if I pause it and then recontinue it, so it's only a white screen when I start a new session, maybe not exactly the same...

Well it seems whatever was causing this for me is gone since updating to 9555 or 9565 (my last two revisions, not sure which one fixed it, I think 9555 was the fix for me).

Hi

Im using Snow Leopard (10.6 - not the 10.6.2), firewall disabled in Mac OS, amsn 0.98.1, dlink dir-300 latest firmware (UPNP capable). I used to have cam problems (white screen, connection timeout etc.) with aMsn, Mercury, Yahoo Messenger. It only worked in Skype.

But maybe it was related to port forwarding, since I enabled DMZ on router dlink and everything worked as expected. AMSN is working nicely, though it is only a temporary solution. I guess windows install some client services to do these NAT things when the two parties are both behind router/firewall.

Best Regards

Hello and welcome to the forums,
About uPnP, amsn doesn't do it. Why don't you just forward the ports ?
