Does pidgin need an Internet connection per se or can it run on internal Corporate LAN?

At a first guess, it's possible it's attempting to contact the version
info on the pidgin.im site to see if an update's available. I believe
this is a plugin which can be disabled.
You can start pidgin in a non-connected stat by using the -n switch, and
by using the -d switch (or the Debug Log veiwer in pidgin) would
probably tell you a bit more about what it's doing internally.
