Pidgin failed to connect to yahoo behind firewall
I am running my Pidgin behind a firewall that is blocking Yahoo port 5050. It is keep me annoyed and made me to use Meebo to keep connecting. I can just use official Yahoo IM client to connect but well…… I just preferred OSS applications to prop’s apps.
Currently, Pidgin do not support Firewall with no proxy option which make the connection to yahoo is painful. However I stumbled upon this page that give me an idea how to make it posibble.
I have change the default port from 5050 to 80 and alhamdulillah! It is connecting!
