Gmail chat blocked at work?

October 17, 2008

Never mind – here’s how to get it working.

Go to
C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc
edit the file hosts and add in the line
209.85.201.189 chatenabled.mail.google.com

of course if you don’t have local admin rights then you can’t

I’ll update this if I think of a workaround for this
