AIM Issue- Advice Sought

Postby FSF Sail » Mon Aug 18, 2014 1:53 pm

I know we're not admins to AIM, but I've had an issue arise that I can't figure out. I use Apple Messages for my chat activity. It's worked like a charm, up til last week.

My AIM accounts (2 of them) suddenly began erroring out when I attempted to enter a chat room. Folks in the room can see me for a second, and then I disappear. At my end, I receive the following:

"Messages couldn't join the chat room "ussstargazersfol." An undefined AIM socket error has occurred."

Has anyone seen this before? Any advice to offer?

I don't know much about Apple Messages, a quick lookup on google about your error brought me to this page: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/39 ... 0&tstart=0
Not sure if it's any help... but you can give it a try.

Thanks, Tommy. I had tried that, and no difference.

I'm still fumbling about with it.

I have started to receive an approval message every now and then when I log into AIM on whether or not to authorize a certificate that appears to be from the AIM service, I assume for authentication to their servers, which started a few months ago. I don't know if it'd be related, as I don't use Apple anything, but perhaps your client is not receiving or displaying this authorization and could be giving you the error.

Thanks, Bri. Truth be told, I downloaded Adium, and got my chat rooms back. I'll just run with that until they kick me out of USS Stargazer...

I've had issues with Messages this past week, too. But I'm also running Yosemite beta, so I don't know if the issues are AIM related or beta OS related.

So I enjoy using native integrated chat programs. :) Can you blame me for keeping it simple?
