hmmm... Microsoft is known for slightly altering or "extending" standards. This could
another one of those cases. Anyways, keep on trying and document your work so someone
else can help out or continue it if you stop.

I can see all the commands in the handshake process. The last command I recieve from
MSN is "911" at interval 6 which translates from the RFC to mean that authentication
failed. I utilize Ethereal for the network sniffing and have been able to verify the
process related to the authentication process with both MSN and my script. The MSN messenger
works but mine does not.
