On my newer 64-bit Ubuntu box I have GAIM 2.0.0.beta6. I assume I can not use Yahoo, AIM, MSN etc because they are looking for IM servers on the Internet when I am on an isolated LAN. I have never used this application so bear with me here. I chose Gadu-Gadu and although it initially claimed that it could not acquire a token or something, I managed through trial and error to create and enter a chat room. Now I am trying to use an older 32-bit machine running Slackware to join in the chat session. It can not find the chat room (which is the only one on the entire LAN) and I fail to see how I can tell it specifically what IP and/or port to go to. It even came back once saying "server not found" and I had no idea what server it was trying to locate. Keep in mind this is an older (perhaps much older version of GAIM)<br><br>Anyway, my objective is to get a box to box chat going on and then try to push it through an encrypted tunnel using
OpenVPN.<br><br>If you have any documentation that can help please point me to it, because I'm sure GAIM/Pidgin is painless and idiot-proof when you are on the web, but I can't seem to get it up and running on my LAN.<br><br>Oh I am also in the process of trying to create an embedded version of Finch which is why I am in the devel forum at all, but maybe this quiestion should be on some newb user forum, sorry.<br><br>Now on an older 32-bit Slackware box<br><br><b><i>Daniel Atallah <email@example.com></i></b> wrote:<blockquote class="replbq" style="border-left: 2px solid rgb(16, 16, 255); margin-left: 5px; padding-left: 5px;"> On 7/26/07, Bill Fassler <firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote:<br>> I am trying a test to see if pidgin will work in an isolated internal<br>> corporate LAN.
