Google Chat with Pidgin Broken

We recently had some network issues which caused the Pidgin Universal Chat client to break.

Help at the Pidgin site produced the answer but I thought I’d give the short version here without you having to search through their FAQ as did I.

  1. Start Pidgin
  2. Show Buddy List
  3. Accounts > the Appropriate Account > Manage Account
  4. Advanced Tab
  5. Connect Server = “” (See image)
  6. Save
