Can't connect to Google Talk (Gmail or Apps account) with Pidgin

I've tried XMPP and Google Talk as protocol. Neither can connect. I
abhor Gmail's chat client, or Chrome's chat extension. Pidgin used to
work (even a few weeks ago, but I re-installed Windows). On one
occasion I got an email from Google about stopped external client
access because of outdated security stuffs, but that was only once,
and I've tried a dozen times the last days.
I have a Gmail account, which can't connect, and a Google Apps
account, which also can't connect. Both work fine with the Chrome
GTalk extension, but I hate that.
I've read and followed

Anyone had and solved this problem? Many thanks.
