Signing In Through a Firewall or a NAT

Windows Messenger is configured to run whenever you turn on your computer.

When you connect to the Internet, Windows Messenger automatically connects to its server, even from behind a firewall or a network address translation (NAT). Windows Messenger first tries to connect directly so that you can use its full functionality. If Windows Messenger cannot connect directly, it uses the same HTTP connection that your default browser uses to connect to the Internet.

yes so far so good

Wales – FUW urges farmers to take advantage of broadband help

The Farmers’ Union of Wales’ Meirionnydd branch today (Wednesday August 25) appealed to farmers to take advantage of the Welsh Assembly Government’s (WAG) new scheme to assist those hit by difficulties obtaining broadband reception.

The 2m funding scheme, announced early last month, offers supp ort up to a maximum of 1,000 for individual premises.

FUW Meirionnydd county chairman Robert Wyn Evans said it was important for members to be aware of this scheme as there were many broadband not-spots” in the county and many other parts of rural Wales.

The union has already assisted members in the Cwmtirmynach, Bala area who are preparing quotations to accompany the completed application forms to WAG.

Mr Evans said broadband was now becoming essential to farmers with so many requiring the facility for reporting cattle movements, completion of VAT returns and many other services.

“Many see access to the internet as critical for living and working in rural areas such as Meirionnydd, and we warmly welcome this initiative from the Assembly Government,” Mr Evans added.

He also revealed that FUW county branch staff would assist members with the scheme’s booklets and information at its stand at today’s (Wednesday August 25) Merioneth County Show in Harlech.
