One of my friends just put a second computer in their home. So far their networking is fine except for one glitch. They can't get msn messenger or windows messenger to run on both computers at the same time. I thought that maybe its a port issue. Does anyone have any idea how to resolve this issue?
I would greatly appreciate any help I can find for them.

I know this isn't a very helpful reply. But have you tried downloading a alternate MSN messanger like trillion? Maybe that will solve the problem. :tazz:

I'm curious, did you get your problem solved? What Network are you using? VPN, IIS???

Might help :

1) VPN Connection

2) Q: Problem connecting to MSN Messenger (#8884)

3) Most Frequently Asked Questions

Maybe this??? :

Problem - I keep getting MSN Messenger messages that say I am signed on a another location.

Answer -

Most likely it means what it says. The common scenario is if, like I do, you use MSN Messenger on more than one machine. If the machine you're not using is rebooted, it will sign on again, causing you to get that message. Also, network problems can cause MSN Messenger to login again as well. However if you're concerned that someone else is using your account or machine ... just change your password and see if the problem goes away.

HTH, but would like some feedback as to whether you solved problem and how.
