Sorry Jois not to have a response to your quesstion but I have a
question which is on the same topic : I use imcom, the console jabber
client, and i'm trying to contact a friend who has a yahoo account. I
have a jabber account and I have added the yahoo transport with the
/agenthelp command. But now when I try to add my contact to the roster
with the /add command it tells me that I'm not allowed to acces the
server if I remember well (I had an error 502=/ Now if I type w to see
the list of contacts and their status I see the yahoo contact I want to
tchat with but after the word disconnected it is written awaiting

So if someone here know how to proceed to contact someone on yahoo
please help ! Perhaps I must create first a yahoo account for me ?

Thx in advance for your advices.
