AIM disconnect/reconnect loop
|Reported by:||sfranklin1717||Owned by:||MarkDoliner|
I'm using 2.0.2 on Windows XP. I had a working AIM connection last week, although it would occasionally disconnect and reconnect. Now, whenever I try to log in, I get "Server closed the connection", and after a while it changes to the message below. My other accounts (Yahoo, Sametime) work fine. I double-checked that the server (oscar.login.aol.com) and port (5190), as well as my username and password, are correct. There is no proxy configured. I also confirmed that AIM works fine when using the actual AIM client on this same machine.
<my user name> (AIM) disconnected
You have been connecting and disconnecting too frequently. Wait ten minutes and try again. If you continue to try, you will need to wait even longer.
Pidgin will not attempt to reconnect the account until you correct the error and re-enable the account.
