Question Advanced settings for using Yahoo! messenger in Pidgin


I have been successfully using pidgin on ubuntu for google talk, using port 443(though default is 5222); Proxy settings being HTTP (localohost, 5865) also using ntlmaps side-by-side. I need to use ntlmaps because authentications is compulsory here.

Now, when I try using 'yahoo' for the messenger with the default 'yahoo options'(part of 'advanced options') and 'proxy options' being HTTP(localhost and 5865) with ntlmaps on, it doesn't work and gives following error :

"Could not establish a connection with the server:
Access denied: HTTP proxy server forbids port 5050 tunneling."

It would be of good help to me if you can make this work clearing me of the above error ....
