Instant Messaging Setup

    Instant Messaging

    Instant Messaging (IM) is commonly used among our students to communicate with their parents and peers. To that end, we facilitate the use of IM software within our network through port 80. To configure your software, please follow the instructions below for your specific IM client.

    Note: MSN cannot be configured to use port 80 and is therefore unable to communicate using our network. You can use one of the three other alternatives: AOL, ICQ, and Yahoo.
