ICQ Connection Problem whenever I launch Miranda

Asked By 230 points N/A Posted on -

Hello everyone,

Can anyone help ?

I can say I am very upset with Miranda in the last few weeks. The problem commences, whenever I launch Miranda. The ICQ protocol just backfires ; it keeps connecting forever and sometimes it does not connect at all.

I have tried to research and this is all I have got.

– Give it “offline “status manually

-Wait for the error the error message to appear

-Click on the online status once it is connected.

But this is not helping me. I have tweaked all the possible settings of the protocol, especially the port related options. My wonder is that a friend is using the same installation comfortably. My computer is not the problem, because it’s fresh from formatting. I can’t figure out the real problem. Please help.

ICQ Connection Problem whenever I launch Miranda


These are some solutions.

1. This Mod requires an UNICODE Miranda 0.7, Testing Build #27 or higher to work properly. The included autoexec_ICQSrvs.ini shouldn't be placed in the plugin folder but in the Miranda root folder.

2. You should provide a network log when you have connectivity issues.

3. Go to Options – network – ICQ – connection settings ; uncheck and check again "Secure >Connection" checkbox (Miranda will change login server and port to default values). You need to login on un secure and then again after setting to secure connections. Works for me too – 0.9.8 on Windows Vista.

4. First of all, please double check that Miranda is not blocked by e. g. a firewall. Also, make sure that your settings in Miranda IM Options >> Network are correct. If this doesn't help, a network log might help you figure out what the issue is. To get a network log:

  • Set all protocols to Offline.
  • Open Miranda options, select "Network" in the tree", click on the "Logging…" button and enable logging to a file (checkmark "File" and browse to the file where the log should be saved).
  • Select "ICQ" from the Status menu and click on "Online".
  • Wait until the network activity stops or the error message appears.
  • Repeat steps 3-4 for AIM.
  • Disable logging.

If you want to provide your log for other members for analysis, zip it up and upload somewhere

(if you have no web space, you could try e.g. http://www.mirrorupload.net/). Or paste the plain text here: http://miranda.pastebin.ca

5. Copy ICQ.dll into plugins, and everything works fine.

If anybody has problems in connecting to ICQ networks to launch Miranda it is better to give v. RC2 a try. When you are about to open Miranda Options, you must make sure, that the  checkbox denoting” Show expert options” located in the very lower left of options-window is checked. After checking the said option carry on to the  Networks -> ICQ. On the "Account"-Tab, there's a new option/checkbox named "Secure (MD5) login".

If you still have trouble in launching Miranda uncheck the new option and you might it alright now.
