Adium Problem – Error: Socket is not connected

I ran into an annoying little problem last week – Adium was no longer able to connect with my AIM account. The error it kept giving me was “Adium problem – Error: Socket is not connected.” Frustrating!

After hunting around the web a bit and finding several headache-inducing solutions (involving deleting, uninstalling, reinstalling, etc), I found a forum comment that I thought worth a try. The solution? Simply go into Adium’s preference panel, choose the offending account and hit edit.

And chang the port to 80 from whatever it currently is (mine was 5190).

Then, voila! Success!
