Pidgin Yahoo HTTP proxy forbids port 5050 tunneling

HTTP proxy forbids port 5050 tunneling

If you are using the network under a proxy you will get these error while connecting to Yahoo messenger through Pidgin.
To fix this issue following change is required in pidgin proxy settings.

Go to Pidgin –> Accounts –> Manage Accounts –> Select your yahoo account –> Modify –> Proxy –> Here change the Proxy Type to No Proxy

This will fix the port tunneling issue.
