Is it possible to get on the Kik network with Pigdin? I'm told it uses xmpp but I can't figure out the configuration settings.
Yes, Kik uses XMPP, but it seems that they have some strange non-standard stuff in place that will prevent random Jabber clients from signing in. source
The Pidgin team may add a plugin if someone can reverse engineer that proprietary components of the Kik XMPP protocol, but no luck thus far.
