Pidgin and Google Talk

pidgin
I changed my gmail password and now I found out that Pidgin won’t connect to Google. I finally figured it out after much PITA ..

Anyway I upgraded Pidgin to 2.6.2 . On my XP machine this are the settings :

  1. Domain: gmail.com
  2. Resource : Home
  3. Force old (port 5223) SSL
  4. Connect port : 443
  5. connect server:talk.google.com
  6. Everything works after this!
