#6240: a truelly neccessary feature to compete with other IMs
 Reporter:  thisfire                    |       Type:  enhancement
   Status:  new                         |   Priority:  minor      
Component:  libpurple                   |    Version:  2.4.3

 it is imperative for many users of pidgin to have a IM that can check
 multiple ports.
 i use my laptop, and with todays world of wi-fi, many times certain ports
 are blocked.  often, its my IM port.  other IM clients will try several
 ports, and i feel that this is necessary if pidgin truly wants to
 progress.  there is another ticket on the issue, but it is old now, and
 forgotten.  this ticket needs to stay, so that we can remember that this
 is one feature that we cannot go without.  universities everywhere only
 allow certain ports, the one i attend is no exception.

 someone please step up to the plate and add this functionality.  or at
 least a plugin that does so.
