Bypass/Break Firewall to chat on gmail

Ohh, it was a nightmare when i resumed my duties after vocations and noticed that i am unable to chat on gmail/msn/yahoo though the real shock was about gmail, the communication team has blocked all sort of chat in office except that homosexual Jabber LAN chat :p

After a long googling i found a solution using Pidgen on Linux/Windows, bypass/break firewall for gtalk/gmail chat, here it is:

configure your gmail account on Pidgen as follow:

fill in Basic tab as:

Protocol: XMPP
username: your-gmail-username
domain: gmail.com
Resource: Home
Password: gmail-password







fill in Advanced tab as:

Require SSL/TSL: uncheck
Force old port (5223)SSL: check/select
Allow plan text auth...: uncheck
Connect Port: 443
Connect Server: talk.google.com
File transfer proxy: leave default
Proxy type: use gnome proxy settings







Happy gmail chatting, behind firewall !

Cheers
