Pace University uses NAT behind a firewall for its resident and
staff/faculty internal networks. About one week ago, internal users of
AOL Instant Messenger started receiving "You are attempting to sign on
again too soon. Please try again later" AOL Instant Messenger Errors.
We think that AOL recently changed the number of connections behind an
IP that it will allow to use its service. Those with translated IPs are
fine. We haven't been able to get any answers from AOL or Netscape, so
we are exploring proxy services for login.oscar.aol.com at port 5190.
Does anyone out there have any experience with this recent problem
(students are very upset!!!)
