    Hello,

    My father will be in Melbourne, Australia for a while and I want to instant message him a while. What software that is easy to use (my father isn't a computer 'nerd') I tried AIM but that doesn't work through his network (He has LAN, I think that only port 80 is allowed) and MSN doesn't work properly for some reason. He will log on (tired this, when he was in Melbourne earlier this year) and He will not appear online, nor can he send me messages.


    Any suggestions?

    Thanks,

    lieb39

    Good old email =P

    If not that then i suggest that he attempts using ICQ. It seems quite network friendly.

    If that fails then he can use the Java version of ICQ.

    Thanks guys. I was thinking about ICQ. Oh well, I don't get to communicate with him when I'm at school.

    Thanks,
