> Gtalk error message: SSL connection failed
Make sure that You have checked SSL, Force 'Old SSL' and allow plaintext
login. Also, Port should be 5223
> AIM error message: could not connect to authentication server: Connection refused
I don't use AIM
> Yahoo error message: could not establish a connection with the server: Connection refused
Do Not use SSL. Yahoo isn't set-up for this so it has has no way to
allow it. Make sure You haven't checked the box to "Use Japan" unless
You are located in Japan. :-D If You are located in Japan then get back
to Me and I'll provide the entries for the various boxes.
> MSN error message: Connection error from Notification server: Unable to connect
See Yahoo above. Check 'HTTP Server' & make sure the box indicates
gateway.messenger.hotmail.com Also check to see if the Port = 1863
The 'Server' should show: messenger.hotmail.com
NOTE: all of the above assumes You are connecting using Your Hotmail
address as Your MSN Passport ID.
Usually, for Proxy Settings I leave Pidgin set to "Use Global Proxy
Settings" on all Services and haven't experienced an issue.
> All account settings on "Advanced" tab are at the default settings.
Are You behind a Proxy of some kind? Are the outbound settings in
Pidgin the same as they are in Your Trillian installation? Ports, etc.?
> Turned off firewall; didn't make a difference.
I've never had a Firewall issue with Pidgin other than granting it
permission to access the Internet and allowing Pidgin to 'Act as a Server'.
