So I downloaded and installed the new universal MSN 6.1 for Mac (http://www.microsoft.com/mac/downloa...0_download.xml) and when I go to sign in I get a connection error saying I need to connect to the internet.

I got this error randomly probably about a month or two ago using Mercury Mesesnger and it wouldn't connect anymore so i had to use Adium and connect using HTTP.
But I raelly want to use the new MSN for Mac. My firewall is on, with MSN port 1863 enabled...I have a router so I just changed some ports and allowed 1863, 1691-1690, and 6901 (which I needed according to portfowarding.com)

I am just lost. Its frusterating. Can anyone help me out?

It's a known issue. Microsoft already released 6.0.1 to fix the problem.
