    I have problem with my gtalk application ( not gmail chat) when connecting from normal windows xp pc .
    problem is with 10 of my colegues working in the same network. 15 minutes after login to gtalk it shows my status to others as am offline. For me freinds appear as offline while they are realy online .

    When i login again it will show status of online contacts properly ( online ) for 10 to 15 minutes again GMT + 4 uae is time zone.

    It is windows domain based network with ISA and Juniper as proxy and firewall , all gtalk connection are passing through these two.

      Hey Samjee
      I’m not sure about this problem but I faced the similar issue when I was in my college and used the same infrastructure to connect to internet. Though later on we moved to squid server and after that I never noticed such issue. I’m not sure but you should ask your network admin to increase the no. of concurrent connections, that might be helpful.

    I feel a suspense before opening every email in my inbox. I will kill them on the spot if they are not important for me! Otherwise, it will be starred.
