Trillian will not log into my Google Talk account

Hello...was having this problem before I upgraded to TPro Lifetime, but the problem persists. Cannot log into my Google Talk account from Trillian on 3 different OS platforms: Windows 7 PC, Mac OSX 10.6.4, Android (Phone) 4.1.1.

Trillian keeps insisting that my password is incorrect. I deleted and retyped the correct password to no avail. I also made sure that I am not logged into G-Talk from anywhere else. I am not getting a numbered error message.

Please help! Thanks in advance...

    Have you enabled two step authentication on your Google account?

    Yes I have. I didn't even think about that.

    Is there a way to authenticate Trillian with 2SV on my Google account?

    Glenn- Okay, Problem solved. It hadn't occurred to me that I'd need to
    generate a new app-specific password. Thanks for your help! -Mike

    I tried the app-specific password, but it didn't work. Any other ideas?

    I had the same problem, I tried 2-step verification but I still cannot connect. I'm running Mac OS 10.7.3 and just downloaded Trillian 1.4.52 today. Any help?

    @jb - Were you using two step authentication?
