I’m using right now Adium X 1.0.1 with three IM accounts (ICQ, MSN and Google Talk). This great software uses the same GAIM libraries for managing the IM connections.
Adium works nice for me, but not with all the internet connections. With some providers I can’t connect with Gtalk. The problem is very strange and annoying: the message is “SSL Handshake Failed“. I cannot debug it, because this problem will not occur always, even with the same conditions (connection type, latency, IP address, etc…).
Google Talk is a network compatible with the Jabber standard. Into the Google Talk Help, GAIM section, the how-to says to use the 5222 port when adding the Jabber/GTalk account. My fix is to replace the port 5222 simply with the port 80. I have got this idea reading some posts about the ability of Jabber/Gtalk to bypass some firewalls.
Breve riassunto in italiano: modificate la porta da 5222 a 80 nella configurazione di connessiona GTalk e l’errore “SSL Handshake Failed” dovrebbe sparire. 🙂
