The answer to that question of your has already been given in this post:

AS stated , it may be a problem on ur cable walaa's end or it may be that the type of proxy ur cable walla uses is not compatible with the gaim client.
Gaim has been known to have a few sock proxy compatibility problems.
Try tweaking the socks proxy settings in gaim although not much can be done with it or try giving another IM client a try...like AMSN.
Even if amsn and gaim, both dont work , then try one of the following IMclients for linux:
1) Licq (ICQ).
2) Centericq (Nearly all IM protocols, console).
3) Alicq (ICQ).
4) Micq (ICQ).
5) GnomeICU (ICQ).
6) Gaim. (Nearly all IM protocols)
7) Ayttm. (Nearly all IM protocols)
10) Simple Instant Messenger.
11) Imici Messenger.
12) Ickle (ICQ).
13) aMSN (MSN).
14) Kmerlin (MSN).
15) Kicq (ICQ).
16) YSM. (ICQ, console).
1 Yahoo Messenger for Unix.
19) Kmess (MSN).
21) MSNre. (console)
I guess atleast One of them would work for you.

Problem is not solved
I think i have problem listed in.....http://www.linuxpakistan.net/forum2x/vi ... light=gaimhttp://www.linuxpakistan.net/forum2x/vi ... light=gaim
Some one wrote there...
It may well be, that ur lan connection provider, which i assume is ur deesi cable walla...has a configuration that does not allow linux initialised socks proxy IM connections.
I am using latest version of gaim. I connect through ISA server (desi cable network) and i can browse the sites, but cannot connect to IM client - messengers and IRC clients....
Now what can I do? If server has any configuration that does not allow linux initialised socks proxy IM connections, then how can I change this configration.
