5190- Aim is the port i was referring too in the advanced-modify account tab
, I am running windows vista home premium 32 bit,  with eset smart security
4, I attached a debug log window. I use 2 aim accounts on pidgin one seems
to be working the other says "Unable to connect to authentication server:
Connection timed out." I uninstalled and reinstalled with
Pidgin 2.6.2*
(libpurple 2.6.2)

the only plug in i have is a spell checker
Thank you
