MSN client.

Overview

TMSNC is a textbased (console) MSN client written in C. TMSNC should work on most Unix (Linux, BSD, MacOS) compatible operating systems. The goal of this project is to create a client like MSN Messenger (with sound, webcam and file transfer support), but without any graphical features.
TMSNC is an opensource project which is released under the IR Public Domain License which basically is a modification of the BSD license.

" The reason why we decided to start this project is that we didn't know of any clients for Unix and clones that don't require Xfree86 to be running " I know 2 others clients, and they support many IM protocols: centericq and bitlbee.

great idea and well implemented. As far as i can see the only bad feedback has been from the odd "n00b" or two, and i've got nothing bad to say about it. Well done!

For one thing, the ability to run it remotely from an ssh session. For example, if your employer blocks MSN traffic, you can ssh to your Mac at home, and use this "Text-based MSN" on the Mac.

its installed in /usr/local/bin which is a folder not visible to finder. You run the program by typing 'tmsnc' in the terminal.

Actually there's a manpage installed in $PREFIX/man/man1/tmsnc.1, if this is not in the default man path you will need to move it.

Very nice. Works as advertised, although some documentation of the available commands would be nice (doesn't seem like it installed a man page.)

Very cool program. It is simple to use and it has all the features needed for chatting with my MSN contacts although some stuff could be improved.. It seems a bit unstable but overall it is good. /ppp

Useless. Refuses to authenticate. I double and triple checked the username and password, but it still fails authentication. Connecting with another IM client using the same username and password works, so it has to be this software that is at fault.
