Theodotos Andreou proposed the following answer:
Please check if you have any firewall enabled. From console type
"iptables -L". If you get something different than:

Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target     prot opt source               destination         

Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT)
target     prot opt source               destination         

Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target     prot opt source               destination         

then a firewall is activated. Disable (temporarily) the firewall by
running "iptables -F"

If you suspect it is a problem of pidgin try to use another client like
kopete and see if that one works.
