All IM applications fail to connect properly
Hi there everyone,
I'm using Dreamlinux 3.5(Debian based), but doubt that my problem is distro specific.
I've tried Pidgin ayttm to try to connect to my im accounts. Both apps connect, but I can't actually im to and fro. Pidgin doesn't show anyone on and ayttm shows the people online but won't allow me to talk to them. If I boot into my Win partition, I can IM just fine. Also, if I connect to my accounts using a web based IM client like Meebo while on linux, it works fine. All other computers on the network connect without issue.
I'm not sure where to begin. If anyone has any ideas, I'd be more than happy to hear them. Thanks in advance for your time.
