RE: [SLUG] ICQ & irc through ipchains


I have heard of people use windows ICQ (Groupware version) under linux using
Wine but never been able to get a copy of that version for myself.
Apparently they got it going OK but occasionly had cosmetic problems whicha
minimize/restore fixed it..

This would be the great if it did work.. I patched around for hours to get
the normal ICQ 99a/99b to work and got as far as trying to get the sockets
working but failed..

it thru its paces...
