Re: Embedded IM using Tor

Hash: SHA256

from what i understand, Torbutton should take care of this.  make sure
all of the "crucial" (or "critical" ... can't remember) settings are
activated inside Torbutton.  then, if your IM doesn't work, torbutton is
doing its job.  if your IM is working then it is safe to assume all
traffic is properly being routed thru Tor.

but using pidgin is probably better if that is an option.  there is also
"pidgin portable".
