Tor proxy for Pidgin

Good day
In the proxy tab of Pidgin there is Tor/privacy (Socks5) option with Host, Port, username and password. What do I have to insert in these fields?


Good day,

This applies here: https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Chat#Pidgin

If you’d like to use proxies or VPNs, please regard this: https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Tunnels/Connecting_to_Tor_before_a_proxy

Also, using Socks5 when VPNs are available is really not a good idea in case of Whonix, as your Ping is already rather high due to Tor.

Have a nice day,
