Configuring Trillian Pro for Google Talk

Once you purchase and download Trillian Pro, you'll need to configure your client to connect to Google Talk. Make sure you're using Trillian Pro -- the standard version isn't compatible with Google Talk. Here's how to configure Trillian Pro:
  1. Open Trillian Pro.
  2. Click Trillian > Connections > Manage my Connections.



  3. Click Identities & Connections from the left menu and select JABBER.



  4. Click Add a new connection...
  5. In the Jabber ID (JID) field:
    • If you're signing in with a Gmail or Google Mail username, enter your full email address.
    • If your Google Talk username isn't associated with any Google email product, add @gmail.com to the end of your username. For example, iloveyoko will become iloveyoko@gmail.com.
    • If you're a Google Apps user, enter your full email address (gordon@example.com).
  6. Enter your password in the field beneath Please enter your password.
  7. Click Change...



  8. Enter the following information in the appropriate fields:
    • Server Host: talk.google.com
    • Server Port: 5222
  9. Leave the box next to Use legacy SSL for connection unchecked.
  10. Check the box next to Attempt to reconnect when connection is lost.



  11. Click Save Settings.
Congratulations! You are now ready to connect to Google Talk using Trillian Pro.
