    if you use a alternate dns (i highly recommend level3’s,, as other free dns’s are slow and play the same bs) then you will be immune to this attach and all secure/ssl/tls connections should be completely secure, they can still look at unencrypted connections.

    I had weird problems with pidgin and gtalk at a friend’s house. Some problem with their budget router?

    Anyway, following the steps described here cleared it up nicely. I wonder if the gtalk ip was what was giving me grief?

    Anyway, I’m not going to probe – it works.

    You say: “Put the IP that you get in place of โ€œtalk.google.comโ€ in the settings.” But in what settings? Pidgin settings? Gtalk settings? I’m trying to make this work and I’m not sure what I’m doing.

    I still cannot connect. It says “read error”. Oh well, thanks for the help.

    I’m not finding talk.google.com any where in the advance tab under modify account window. I’m getting connect server. I’m using PidGin 2.5.8

    i tried the same method. it doesnt work from office for me. i see that they have a server that mimics talk.google.com inside. i changed port to 443, and put the ip of talk.google.com, but still it doesnt connect. whats the way to debug this issue?
