View Full Version : Pidgin nor Kopete will connect to yahoo

8th June 2008, 01:18 AM
For some reason, starting today, Pidgin refuses to connect to my yahoo account. I figured maybe it's a problem with Pidgin, so I install Kopete, but I keep having the same problem and it's only affecting my yahoo account, both will connect just fine to my AIM account. Anybody know what the problem could be?

Did it work before ?

Or its a new installation & new configuration ?

Monday, June 09 2008 - Try it now. I couldn't connect on Friday 6/Sat 7 and it magically started working again on Sunday.

I reckon that it was some dufus at Yahoo doing an upgrade.

have you tried connecting to yahoo using a different Yahoo Port?

Don't know what was happening on Friday but on Saturday afternoon Pidgin on my box would connect to Yahoo, although this did take some time. Altogether it was about 3-4 minutes before it would allow me to connect.

oddly, yahoo now connects fine for me. Strange!
