I am trying to get silc to work with pidgin
The problem is that those instructions are for setting up silc on a Linux like OS.
For Windows XP you don't need setup instructions as pidgin on Windows has silc support builtin.
From a quick Google search on the error I found one page that said that can be caused by pidgin needing to use a password saved in the silc account properties as it doesn't open a password dialog when connecting.
I just tested this in pidgin and it appears to work.
I created a silc account in pidgin with a blank password and checked remember password and it connected.
I just tried and I am still getting the same error message! I do not know what I am doing wrong! And I am having a hard time finding anything on google. It seems the world has destined me not to have silc.
If you put in a blank password, checked "Remember Password" and it still doesn't work then I don't know what else you could try.
I tried searching on Google and didn't find much either.
Actually this is the first I've heared of the SILC protocol, I usually use stuff like IRC and Yahoo Messenger.
Why do you want to use SILC instead of something like Yahoo Messenger?
SILC is secure. It is the safest way to chat - it is for the paranoid.
I also use other clients. I would really like to get back unto SILC. I believe the problem is that I am missing the server key file. Hopefully, I will be able to email from a friend and put it in my .silc folder ...
