Hello, I am a new user of the Pidgin IM program. I first utilized your program with flying colors. However, after a few days, my AIM account would not sign into its appropriate server (saying it timed out the connection). My Yahoo account still worked however.
Since then I posted a troubleshoot ticket and have utilized your real-time chat. As of yet, my issue has still not been resolved. With a little help of the chat I learned that my Windows firewall was not affecting the program. Also that my Symantec AV program may also not be responsible, as I believed to shut off its auto-detections and the connection still failed.
I was simply wondering if I could get some assistance on this issue. I do not consider myself very knowledgeable when it comes to networking and such. So I would greatly appreciate a simple step method to resolving the issue, if a solutions exists.
Thank you very much,
