Troubleshooting

It does not connect.

If port 6697 is the SSL port, you need [Check] The Use SSL in the Advanced Tab.

This is a failed attempt due to not [Check]'ing the Use SSL.

  Lost connection with server: Remote host closed connection.

Further Debugging/Troubleshooting can be done by opening the debug window: Help -> Debug Window

Channels

By default, when you close pidgin, it parts all the channels before disconnecting, which defeats the whole purpose of using a bouncer. It's because pidgin sucks as IRC client, and you should switch to some better client.

As a workaround, you can try stickychan, or add all channels to "favorites" in pidgin.
