  Pidgin fails to connect in all the cases below

 1) using  gmail password and default settings
 2) Enabling 2 step verfication in gmail and using the given password at
 default settings
 3) Port Number default :5222 was not working, tried Port Number: 5223,
 still no hope.
 4) tried Encryption: Old style SSL, Port No. 443

 Network is On and I get Gmail chat in browser. Also, Facebook chat
 connects without any problem using pidgin.
