I'm looking for a patch for the instant-messaging proxy imspector ([url removed, login to view]). The software is written in c/c++ and has modules for each supported instant-messaging protocol it proxies.
I'm interested in the ICQ-AIM protocol. Here the login through the proxy to the ICQ-AIM servers does not work anymore due to a server-site change when the latest official client from [url removed, login to view] is used. Probably message transmission is also affected, has to be investigated and problably fixed. Older official and third-party clients (e.g. trillian) still work and it is not known that the protocol has changed fundamentally.
All protocol specific logic and code can be found in the module icqprotocolplugin.cpp. The file has 1041 lines of code.
Your task is to get the ICQ client in version 7.4 to work again through the proxy. In order to do that you will have to investigate the communication with tools like etherreal or wireshark etc and do some debuging in this file.
Please tell me in your bid or private message what you think that qualifies you for this job.
As always in my projects the chosen service provider has to be able to issue a valid invoice for his work (either containg his local tax payer id or in case of a company a vat code).
