#13087 closed defect (out of date)

Time-out occurring after 60 seconds of inactivity in chat with web browser interface

Reported by: Captain Rage Owned by: QuLogic
Milestone: Component: MSN
Version: 2.7.9 Keywords: time-out MSN web-interface 60 seconds

Description (last modified by Captain Rage)

I've got a Live account which I use with Pidgin 2.7.7 that people are supposed to be able to write to when using a web browser interface (like to one at However, when the chat starts, the conversation is broken if both of the users are inactive for 60 seconds. This is a major nuisiance which renders Pidgin unusable when talking to people that are logged in through web browser interfaces.

Running Empathy on Ubuntu doesn't cause this behaviour, neither does running Pidgin when chatting with users that are using clients which aren't a web interface (e.g. ordiniary Live Messenger, or Adium).

EDIT: The problem is still present in Pidgin 2.7.9 on Windows 2003, so I'm fairly sure this issue can be narrowed down to Pidgin.

This is a switchboard server related problem, and switchboard servers don't exist anymore. Closing.
