    Might it be an idea to have a social group that automatically makes all users a member of so that they're available in the main chat list? EduGeek Users or something?

    Listing 6000 members would be a bit much. I think the best way for people to add those they wish to talk to would be either by joining a social group that the other person is in, or by simply adding them manually to their roster.

    Other obvious candidates for 'automatic groups' are people you've PM'd and people you've added as a contact/friend on your UserCP.

    People you add on vbulletin to your friends will be synced with your friends on Jabber soon so you will automatically build connections easily.

    Hmm..bum...got spark, got it all nicely setup, cannot connect to edugeek server. Probably our LEA blocking it someway, they're real strict on chat things.

    AH HA!

    Spark does NOT use the proxy settings for the xmpp connection. HOW UTTERLY USELESS.

    Tried on XP/OS X. Been reading up on the spark forums and bugs. If it works for you then you must be allowed to connect directly to the host on port 443.

    Try a different client like Pidgin or Pandion (both have flash guides).

    Good luck

    Bypassing the LEA.

    Don't know if it will work for you and your LEA, but I installed the ISA Firewall Client (\\SERVER\MSPCLNT\Setup.exe) on my laptop, and it would appear that I bypass the LEA filters completely. Even talked to the LEA about it and they were unaware it was possible. It means I don't have to set proxies in browsers, chat programs etc, and it appears I'm completely unrestricted as to what I can view on the 'net.
