Can someone explain me this?


#1

I see stuff related to “live.com” in WLM 2012 files, I want to replace them by Escargot’s links, but with what should i replace them ?

Here are the links I need to replace :

vp.sip.messenger.msn.com
relay.voice.messenger.msn.com
messengersecure.live.com
ssl.live.com
msn.com
messengerclear.live.com
beta.gateway.messenger.live.com
relay.voice.edge.messenger.live.com
https://loginnet.passport.com

Plz help

(Sorry if i’m annoying, i’m just trying to patch it)


#2

beta.gateway.messenger.live.com is for the gateway to the beta MSN servers, the two relay.voice.* links seem to be relay servers for voice chat, vp.sip.messenger.msn.com is for SIP communication I believe, https://loginnet.passport.com for HTTPS authentication, and the rest are links the HTTPS authentication utilizes for session tokens of each requested URL.

I’d go with patching the HTTPS authentication URL and if you did find it, the MSNP server URL, and you should be able to see if WLM 2012 will attempt to connect to the Escargot server. Just don’t expect it to fully authenticate, considering what Escargot supports right now. :stuck_out_tongue:


#3

So, I replace https://loginnet.passport.com with https://escargot.log1p.xyz/ ?


#4

Close, but no cigar. :stuck_out_tongue:

It should be the URL https://loginnet.passport.com/RST(2).srf replaced with https://m1.escargot.log1p.xyz/NotRST.srf, but I don’t think that’ll fit at the moment unless the URL is shortened, so you’re better off with HOSTS redirects for now. :stuck_out_tongue:


#5

There’s no https://loginnet.passport.com/RST(2).srf
Only https://loginnet.passport.com


#6

Oh yeah. Now I remember. That was used to retrieve ppcrlconfig.srf, as described here:

Since wlidcli.dll, the file that contains said URL, is vastly different from MSIDCRL, and the fact that no one on the Escargot dev team has written a patched version of the DLL, you’re in a pickle right now.


#7

So I can’t do anything ? :frowning:


#8

Unless you use the dev server, which contains entries for RST.srf, although they don’t work with MSN 7.5 and might not work post-WLM 8.x, and HOSTS entries to redirect the login.live.com URL to the dev server on 127.0.0.1, pretty much. :confused:


#9

how can i use the dev server ?


#10

I will keep going unless i figured out how to do !


#11

Checkout the dev branch on Escargot’s GitLab repo at https://gitlab.com/valtron/msn-server/tree/dev. :slight_smile:


#12

I download it ?

PLZ Gimme the steps if possible


#13

Read the instructions @valtron provides on setting up the dev server here:


#14

Okay ! Thanks !


#15

My pleasure. :stuck_out_tongue:


#16

I don’t understand the steps…


#17

and in your “host” add…

i don’t see any “host” file.


#18

The HOSTS file is usually located in C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\. and make sure to open the text editor you plan to use to edit HOSTS with administrator privileges.

As for the other steps you don’t seem to understand, are you talking about the MSYS2 stuff? @valtron already linked a guide to setting that up in the instructions. :stuck_out_tongue:


#19

I’ll say when i’m lost


#20

just something quick, how do i edit “hosts” ?
