pidgin yahoo connection refused -Solved

I’ve done those steps:

1. Open file /etc/hosts with gedit:

$ sudo gedit /etc/hosts

2. Add the following line to the end of hosts:

66.163.181.184 scs.msg.yahoo.com

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++


# The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
::1         localhost ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
fe00::0 ip6-localnet
ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix
ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
ff02::2 ip6-allrouters
ff02::3 ip6-allhosts
66.163.181.184 scs.msg.yahoo.com

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

3. Save and Close

4. Restart Pidgin

OK.

Good luck!
