Howto Pidgin into Hyves ;-)

The Hyves kwekker services uses the XMPP protocol.
What is most annoying about Hyves im service is that the server IP addresses change once in a while. ((that's why I do not publish ip addresses from Hyves servers)

Get the correct server IP address:
+ Login to your Hyves account and goto your page
+ Check the HTML source and search for "pollhost", this is the ip address of the server

Here is a screenshot of the older version of Pidgin called Gaim:

Gaim and Hyves:

hyves instellingen pidgin, hyves en pigin, pidgin gebruiken met hyves, pidgin en hyves, setup pigin for hyves, setup pidgin and hyves, configure pidgin for hyves
howto pidgin hyves, connect pidgin to hyves, use pidgin with hyves, hyves and pidgin

recently, pidgin started to bomb on hyves' kwekker service over XMPP. I kept getting the notice "no route to host'. INteresting, since the instructions here listan IP address. So that would mean the host was removed/renamed.

Either way, I quickly found the group and they gave me a new server to connect to.

It might be helpful if you shared that servername with the rest of the world.
