    Hi, I have clients using live messenger behind a whitelisting proxy, ie. they
    can only go to Internet sites which I specifically allow. I am having
    difficulty pinning down the complete list of sites which messenger needs to
    talk to.

    So far, I have the following:

    152.163.241.0/24
    207.46.1.0/24
    207.46.107.0/24
    207.46.108.0/24
    207.46.110.0/24
    207.46.26.0/24
    207.46.27.0/24
    64.12.163.0/24
    64.4.13.0/24
    gateway.messenger.hotmail
    config.messenger.msn.com

    I keep seeing new IP addresses in my deny logs. Does anyone have a complete
    list of the messenger IP addresses?

    On a side note, it would be nice if there was a DNS resolution for all these
    hosts, so I could just allow *.messenger.msn.com or similar. It is annoying
    having to specify actual IP addresses.

    Thanks,

    Gavin
