Yeah, the above link has to be commended for its awesomeness and its brevity. 8 simple steps (7 for those of us running Linux) to tunnel all Pidgin traffic over an ssh connection. Excellent. And kudos to you, lordm, for the suggestion of using the Pidgin OTR plugin, a most excellent piece of code that can encrypt and authenticate IM traffic.

Definitely bookmark the above page!
