I asked one of the Pidgin developers and he said:


[14:20:18] <stpeter> is there a known problem with pidgin and jabber.org
regarding acceptable auth mechanisms?
[14:20:28] <stpeter> someone told me they couldn't log in using PLAIN or MD5
[14:21:17] <deryni> Not that I'm aware of. I just logged in with
DIGEST-MD5 here.
[14:21:22] <stpeter> ok
[14:21:23] <stpeter> thanks
[14:21:30] <stpeter> I'll ask this person to try to reproduce it
[14:21:39] <deryni> If they are using linux, make sure they have the
appropriate sasl2 modules packages installed.
[14:22:00] <deryni> They are often separate from sasl itself, causing it
to work but have no mech support.


As discussed here:
