AIM Express

For some reason AIM Express does not function when I try to use it at work. The Java applet loads fine but stalls after entering the login information. Any idea why this happens?

Do you have a firewall at work? Perhaps it’s being blocked?

I think we have a firewall set up. If I remember correctly, some Java applets are disabled but this AIM Express applet seems to load okay. Could the firewall be responsible for both preventing some applets to load and the connection for AIME?
