    Pidgin suddenly won't connect over vpn

    I have a VPN set up to my house from work with privoxy set up on the box at home. I have chrome, firefox and pidgin all using this proxy. Up until Friday, everything was working fine, then suddenly pidgin stopped connecting through the VPN. Chrome and firefox are still working fine.

    All are set to connect to 192.168.57.1 over port 8118 but for what ever reason, pidgin won't connect any more.

    Didn't do any updates to pidgin, privoxy, openvpn or iptables although, since chrome and firefox are connecting fine over 8118, iptables shouldn't have anything to do with it.

    No idea what happened. Re-installed pidgin and it's working fine now.


    Carry on....
