1) Install Dropbox
2) Copy the file into your Dropbox folder
3) Right click on the file, find the Dropbox menu item, choose "Copy 
Link" or similar.
4) Copy the link into the clipboard.
5) Paste it into pidgin.

I realize this isn't quite what you're asking, but file transfers barely 
work among the authorized clients in various network configurations, 
third party clients don't seem to have a chance outside of ideal 
configurations with a ton of luck.

Using a tool designed to transfer files rather than a tool designed to 
transfer messages will generally yield better results across the board.
