    Default Pidgin 2.5.1 cannot connect to yahoo

    Hi to all,
    2 days ago i install openSUSE 11.1 Gnome on my laptop with dual boot Windows XP SP3, Installation and other stuff installed smoothly with out any problem. Both OS works fine.
    I am trying to connect to yahoo through Pidgin, but can't.
    I have changed some basic settings of Pidgin yahoo protocol.
    Some information i would like to share:
    Page Server: scs.msg.yahoo.com
    Japan pager server: cs.yahoo.co.jp
    pager port: 5050
    File transfer server: filetransfer.msg.yahoo.com
    Japan file transfer server: filetransfer.msg.yahoo.co.jp
    File Transfer port: 80
    chat room local: us
    Encoding: ISO-8859-1
    Proxy type: use GNOME proxy settings


    I searched, and ping scs.msg.yahoo.com, changed the pager server to IP, which is 66.163.181.172.
    Even i add it to /etc/hosts like:
    66.163.181.172 scs.msg.yahoo.com

    But still no luck, any work around for this...
    Thanks in advance.

    I recommend you update pidgin to version 2.5.5 and then give it another try. At the very least, this will confirm if your problem is version specific. Also, try no proxy instead of using proxy settings.

    Thanks for reply.
    After posting here, i tried to update to newer version which is 2.5.5, and delete my account in pidgin and add new. But no luck.
    After reading your post, i tried it without proxy. And still no result.
    So i think, its not version problem.
    Now I'm installing Kopete, hope it will work(Not sure).

    Now that you have updated pidgin, you should delete .purple because you have changed some settings. This is the only way to start fresh. You can always move .purple back to home from your recycle bin if you want to.

    Had followed the steps, but still pidgin wait and wait for logging in. I'm still not sure, either its OS problem or its pidgin.
    Does some one face this?

    Version 2.5.7 works without a hitch, and is available from the Gnome Community repository.
    I'm confused...No, wait...Maybe I'm not...
