    Jabber...

    Hi everyone,

    I just thought I'd post here too:

    I have now set up a jabber server for edugeekers, if you would like an account please pm me and I'll create one for you.

    It can be accessed as a normal jabber server, or via a choice of 2 web based clients: https://wizzymail.com/xiff and https://wizzymail.com/jw

    The second one is the client most likely not to be filtered.

    The more people who have accounts, the more it'll be useful.

    Jabber is indeed an instant messaging server. Its advantage being that it is open source and free.

    Re: Jabber...

    localzuk which server package did you choose and there seems to be 4 major clients, Spark, Psi, Exodus and Pandion, anyone of those better that the others?

    Just wondering if it's something that might be useful in school. AD authentication would be great. Only problem I could see is messages popping up during lessons, when teachers might have their PC on a whiteboard.

    Re: Jabber...

    I chose Openfire as the server - took about 3 minutes to set up!!

    On the client side, I use whatever's handy including: Adium X, Spark, Pandion, PSI, JWChat, Xiffian and Pidgin.

    AD integration is possible, I believe, but I haven't tried it with this one. My internal school jabber server uses jabberd2 and is ad integrated.

    Oh, and we have 8 or 9 users now. So, no, it has not yet taken off. If more people spread the word...

    Openfire is easier to configure and tweak. Although it does use significantly more resources to run due to it being java.
