Hey everyone, I use Proteus to chat with my friends on ICQ and MSN, but as of last night it has stopped working.

When it starts up it just freezes
I tried checking the developer's site ( www.indigofield.com )
but I can't connect

and it's also no longer listed on Download.com

Does anyone know what happened?
has proteus been discontinued?
Am I the only one having this problem?

I have switched back to fire in the mean time, so it seems that it's just proteus

thanks for the help

I was using Proteus last night and it was working just fine, however the website is down. It sounds as if their still are a few bugs (of which I haven't experienced). I would just hold tight and wait a few days, and see what happens. I just wish Proteus would remember to delete or at least update its contact list from MSN's server.

I cannot connect to the site either, maybe they were hacked?

The main problem I have had with Proteus, V2 and 3 is that it WILL NOT connect to ICQ, I have tried every ICQ Server and port that I can find and it keeps connecting and disconnecting every second, never had a full connect.

I tried Fire but did not like it

Hello,

I've never had any problems with Proteus. I use it for both ICQ and MSN and it's been great. I, too, cannot connect to the site that has been listed above.

hmmmm...
this isn't looking good for me, I'm using version 2.2a16
I've never had any problems connecting to ICQ or MSN up until yesterday when the whole thing stopped working

I don't think it's getting to the point where it's trying to connect, as soon as it starts up it's unresponsive, and all i see is a beachball

I would like to download the new version and try it, but as stated, the site is down, and I can't find a place to download it from

Hello,

Cam, you can download it from here. Let me know when you've downloaded it, so I can remove it.

There is this wierd little feature in Proteus that needs to check with the website for updates everytime it connects. There is a hint on MAcOSXHints on how to disable this feature.

Cheers,
