Problem using SOCKS5 under Windows XP

Reported by: protozorq Owned by: datallah
Milestone: Component: winpidgin (gtk)
Version: 2.4.3 Keywords:


I have a dual boot machine (Windows/Linux?(Ubuntu)) and I use the same pidgin configuration under both operating systems. On Windows XP, SOCKS5 seems to be buggy, because during the handshaking procedure I get the following error message (translated from german language): "Can't establish connection to server. Received invalid data during connection to server." I'm using plugins for Yahoo IM and ICQ and both plugins show the same behavior. Under Linux it works fine. And under Windows it works also fine with SOCKS4.

Pidgin version 2.4.3

Windows XP Professional 2002, SP3

It works fine for me - I do this daily.

What does the debug log say when you try to connect?
