OK, we should be good to start now.

Basically, I have two computers that I switch back and forth from, like, a hundred times a day. I would like to have Miranda NG running on both, connected to my home Google account, and I would like each copy to play nice with each other.

What happens instead is if I have each copy running at the same time, on the same account, they both complain that there is a "KeepStatus error" and that it is"retrying". It does... and it fails saying "giving up". It continually goes through loops and loops of this, never achieving anything. At the same time this is happening, my contact list goes from being populated to being empty.

The problem is instantly fixed by closing one of the instances of Miranda NG on either computer.


Is this a known problem?  Is there a workaround? Is there a proper solution?

Thanks for your time ladies and gentlemen.

XMPP resources collide - this is why two instances of Miranda "fight" with each other.

Change the resource name - so they differ in each instance:

Spoiler

Second variant - restore GTalk regular mode - it adds random number to resource by itself and then it differs, just uncheck this setting:

I myself don't like resource that looks like this:

Spoiler

But if you don't know anything about resources and why two instances with the same resource can't work together - just enable GTalk's regular random number thing and you won't have any problem.

It's really more of my pack behavior rather than standard Miranda's.

Ah! Thanks, looks like it worked flawlessly.

Edit:
Thread marked as [solved], though, I will report back if something is still wrong; I doubt that will be the case.
