    Hi,

    I'm using gtalk on my laptop, connecting from home Wi-Fi router. login is OK. when trying to connect from gtalk client on my galaxy i cannot access gtalk (as well as download apps from market) :mad:
    Did any one hear about this issue before? tried searching the net and saw there is a problem but could find any solution.
    needless to say that i tried all options (open my wireless w/o security, opened NAT and virtual server to all ports etc.)

    thanks,

    Strange. Can you turn on a log on your router and check what its trying to connect to?

    Also run and adb logcat to see what connection(s) is/are failing. Then you can manually test those tcp connections while messing with your router.

    Its possible the mobile version of gtalk uses a different server and ports.

    it uses port 5228 (saw it in the log), made sure the route allows this port - but somehow cannot get connection

    To test its actually open in a cmd window on your PC type:

    telnet mtalk.google.com 5228

    It should connect and the window go blank, and you should be able to type some characters which wont be echoed. Press CTRL + ] and type quit to exit

    If you get connection refused, you're firewall isnt actually open!

    Solve the issue
    indeed was ports configuration (Virtual server & NAT)
    now Gtalk works excellent and i can again download apps from Market using Wi-Fi!!!

    many thanks!!
