More about Pidgin and XMPP

I've spent the day struggling with Pidgin, XMPP and Google Talk. I am still using Pidgin V2.0.1 on Windows XP, with GTK+ 2.10.11. Today I tested Pidgin 2.5.1 and GTK+ 2.10.11 and discovered that I couldn't get it to work with Google Talk. I also discovered that the reliability of XMPP service was dreadful, although I discovered later that this may have been a server issue. I'll have to try again later in the week.

I have documented the state of my findings at Pidgin and Google Talk, at my bliki.

Spent the whole day on an out-dated version of pidgin? I have been running 2.5.1 since its' release. Running it to talk on Google, Yahoo, ICQ, and Skype - There are occasionaly problems with reliability (takes a tail spin about once a week), but otherwise it does its' job.

Ben,

What platform do you use i.e. Mac or PC?

I use the old version because of problems I (and others) have with xmpp chat rooms using more recent versions of pidgin on windows.

What are your Google Talk parameters? Can you document them here please? I can't seem to login to google chat using 2.5.1.
