Is it possible for Windows users to connect to an iChat server? I have many windows users and a mac os x leopard server. I can't find anything I can use with iChat on the mac server. I don't want to buy Microsoft's Live Communication server.

Thank you for any help

According to the Apple iChat Server site:

iChat Server is based on Jabber, the industry-standard IM protocol also known as XMPP. This enables support for Mac computers using iChat, as well as for other Jabber clients running on Windows PCs and iPhone.

Any XMPP compatible client should work. Examples inlcude Google Talk, Pidgin, etc.
