#12236 closed defect (duplicate)

Proxy authentication fails with Yahoo only

Reported by: jcmunioz Owned by:
Milestone: Component: Yahoo!/Yahoo! JAPAN
Version: 2.7.1 Keywords: proxy authentication


As soon as I updated Pidgin to 2.7.1, my yahoo account stopped working, while MSN, Google talk (Jabber), and ICQ are still working properly.

Following the debug output I can see that the proxy responds with "Proxy Authentication required", and after that: "Unable to connect: The server's response did not contain the necessary information".

This last message is also reported at the bottom of the buddy list.

Thank you for your quick response, and for such a great IM client. I am a die-hard pidgin user. :)

Now, I have a question: why is this ticket marked as duplicate of 11986 if I am not using 2 different proxy servers for IM and HTTP? My company uses the same proxy for all protocols (HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, etc) and works fine with all the tools and services.

The part of same issue applies to you - we weren't performing proxy authentication to the HTTP proxy (which was his issue).
