Is there likely to be any support for using the AIM support in Adium with AIM Phoenix
It says to change the host url in the client to iwarg.ddns.net port: 5190 but this doesn't appear to be an option in Adium's AIM configuration as the only customizable item, Login Server, isn't the same thing as the host url so you just get an error repeatedly.
Code: Select all
Error: Received unexpected response from https://api.screenname.aol.com/auth/clientLogin
Don't ask me why... I really don't know why. I just randomly googled AIM and this
was near the top. And now for no good reason I want to try to connect to it even though absolutely no one I know is on going to be on it.

I had a quick look at the website and it appears communication doesn't go through AIM's servers but through some other person's server. I'd recommend against using it, to be honest. There are plenty more ways to chat that would seem more reliable.
The website also recommends Alex Jones' InfoWars website. I find that troubling.

You could try an entry into /etc/hosts to trick it into sending traffic for api.screename to the IP of the new server
Might get more complicated than that, but it's the first thing that comes to mind.
