We tested it here and there appears to be a problem with freechess.org. We tried the Internet Chess Club with a guest account and that worked fine. After further investigation we learned freechess.org does no longer accept guest accounts except via javaboard. So to use ChessPartner on freechess.org you first need to registed an account via www.freechess.org, click on the register link.
