I am behind an authenticated proxy server and I have set it up via
System->Preferences->Network Proxy configuration and applied system-wide.
But most of the chat clients (primarily to access gtalk) do not make use of this setting or even do not work with application specific proxy settings if any. I have found no luck with Empathy, Pidgin etc.
So is there a chat client that works fine behind an authenticated proxy server?
Equally well will be to get any idea to get a workaround for the problem with empathy etc.
I am using Ubuntu 11.04 with Gnome-classic if that matters
