Hi all,
I'm trying to configure my gmail account to make it work behind an HTTP
proxy, I set IP, port, proxy username and proxy password correctly into
proxy tab of mine account, pidgin tries to connect, and after a while
(after line
that contains  xmlns:stream=' into log) I
got a disconnection.
The log follows , obviously I replaced my usernames with (*****) and proxy
IP with (xxx) :

Is there any possibility I can connect in this situation ? I also tried to
change proxy type but I didn't get connected.
