Using MSN with pidgin on Fedora 15

One of my customers wanted to discuss problems with me by MSN. But my office desktop is installed Fedora 15 and not windows. I searched on the net, and found pigdin can solve this issue. The method of installation is very easy.

Install pidgin package
# yum install pidgin

Run the pidgin
$ pidgin

or click Applications->Internet->Pidgin Internet Messenger

Debug mode
The pidgin command provide debug mode, if you met any problem, you could run on this mode
$ pidgin -d

If you could not run it, please check if port 1863 is open or not to you on the firewall.
