I'm am successfully adding my gmail account to both empathy and pidgin (it shows up in green that i'm 'available' on my computer). However, I am unable to send or receive any messages. On empathy it just says there was a network error - unknown, and pidgin say there is an xmpp message error code 404.

I've been trying for months to get IM working with my gmail account. Very disheartening...

sounds like a firewall problem to me.
