typo on my part.

Pidgin has no problem connecting to MSN, ICQ, AIM... but yahoo is a
crap-shoot.  It -used- to work, and then there were problems from a
previous encounter but it seemed to straighten itself out.

Why, when connecting to the same server though, would it connect on the
winders box with Trillian (another non-standard yahoo IM client, along
with all the others) on a computer in the same LAN?

192.168.xx.2 (winders XP) connects, but 192.168.xx.1 (SuSE Linux)
doesn't, while 192.168.xx.1connects to everything else?

Next step is to boot .2 into Ubuntu, and setup Pidgin there to connect
to Yahoo and see if it does.

Stay tuned...
