Hi, it's working here on a Wheezy amd64 and Iceweasel, it was working
previously on a Squeeze amd64. It is also working on a (K)ubuntu 10.10
laptop I have with Chromium.
The plug-in used to have issues with some video cards/drivers (AMD in my
experience), and is also picky about the webcams. Regarding network
requirements the plug-in works fine as long as you have web access
through the browser, it will scan for a zillion UDP and TCP high ports
(above 19000 here) which suggest it may work better if one of these
ports are open, but this should not be necessary since it works for me
without any kind of NAT redirection or port opening.
Googling your error message "Unreadable or no port file. Could > not
initiate GoogleTalkPlugin connection" gives a few hits, maybe you could
try google talk forum or help list ?
