Get the latest version from http://sourceforge.net/projects/wpn-gaim-prpl/ as it's not in our archive.
If you ask for compiling instructions I guess you're running Linux?
Compiling that plugin works like compiling everything else on linux - extract the folder somewhere, cd into it and use 3 simple commands :walk:

1.  ./configure
2.   make
3.   make install   (as root or with sudo)

Of course you need to have some "build essentials" installed for it to work - that's a package name on debian btw. and I think on Ubuntu as well.
On other distros look for gcc, c++, make, etc......
When you run ./configure it will tell you what's missing in most cases.

PS: In case you're running Windoze I believe all you have to do is place the .dll in the folder into your pidgin folder ;)

Click on accounts, click manage accounts.  click add.
In protocol choose Wpnp and click advanced. Put in a cache server IP address in the peer cache box and click save

close it down and then click add buddies, in the add buddies you will see + add chat. Click on that, add the room details and click add. then look in your friends list and the room is their. double click it and it joins the room.

In settings:
WPN PeerCache:     caches.winmxworld.net
Port:              7950
Encoding:          ISO-8859-1              (wrong settings here caused mine segfaulting for a while)
Connection Type:   0                       (default, set from 0-10 for whatever you want it to report, i.e. dsl, cable etc)
Transfer Port:     no idea...

that should get you going...
just type /list to load the channellist then once you're connected to the wpn :)
