VPN google issue

I tried using 443 as the connect port and received : "read error."

Maybe it's a proxy issue?

Here's what I have on the advanced set up tab:

First three boxes unchecked
Connect port: 5222
Connect server: talk.google.com
File server proxies: proxy.jabber.org
Proxy options: Use global proxy settings

Anything I should change?

    Here is the only error message that I have received.  Your 
suggestion to
"talk.google.com" to the connect server field has not worked.

" bbrogs at gmail.com/  disconnected
    Could not establish a connection with the server:
Connection timed out."

The network your VPN connection is routing your traffic through isn't
allowing a connection to the google talk server on the default port.
It is possible that you can use a alternate port in your account
configuration (IIRC the google talk servers also listen on port 443
among others).

How can I send and receive gmail/talk messages with Cisco VPN enabled?
works fine when VPN is off but only AIM and Yahoo works with VPN


This is going to be caused by the network configuration on the VPN
network.  Presumably your VPN configuration is such that it becomes
your default gateway and all traffic is routed through your VPN
connection when it is active.
You haven't provided any debug information that would help identify
what the specific problem you're encountering may be, but one
possibility is related to DNS SRV lookups, in which case you can try
entering "talk.google.com" in the "Connect Server" setting for your
google talk XMPP account.
