When I have SSL/TLS available and I try to login with Pidgin 2.0.0, it opens the connection to the server and then stops. It looks like the Client and the Server might be in some sort of SSL stalemate where they are both waiting for a response/request and neither is doing anything. This problem goes away if I turn off SSL/TLS support on the server.
This is strangely reminiscent of a pandion/Wildfire problem encountered recently. Has anyone managed to get Pidgin 2.0.0 and Openfire working with TLS?
