I have been following the Pidgin development as of late, since the ICQ trouble in early July. I have installed the new v2.4.3 under 2 Windows boxes and one Ubuntu box. On all three, I still seem to be having ICQ connection problems and am wondering if others are also. The details are:
"Lost connection with server: Remote host closed connection"
I am no longer getting the message that my client is too old.
Is this just me, or is anyone else also having this problem?
Oh yes, I forgot to mention.. lol.. that I am having no trouble getting on my Yahoo or MSN accounts, they work fine.
Am I doing something wrong? It's been since July that I can't get on ICQ, yet I can still get on Yahoo and MSN. I have installed the latest 2.5.1 and still no ICQ. I can sign in to ICQ using their web client, no problem. I have removed the .purple data folder, and re-created the account, still no go. I'm not sure what else to try. Am I the only one having this problem? Could ANYone tell me if they can get on their ICQ with Pidgin at all? Any thoughts?
i can login to icq with no problems. xp sp3 pidgin 2.5.1
