From http://wiki.xmpp.org/web/Jabber_Programmer%27s_Guide The architecture of the Jabber network is similar to email while a Jabber server conforms an email server (server.com) and Jabber clients conforms email clients (user@server.com). The difference is that everything happens (by definition: nearly) in realtime over a persistent ...

The jabber daemon choice depend really on your requirements. ejabberd: pros - lots of features; cons - needs loads of memory jabberd2: pros - fast and small prosody: pros - very small, Lua scripted; cons - young thus lacks features

XMPP is the new name, Jabber the old. So yes, they refer to the same protocol stack. XMPP is used as name since 2002: In late 2001 and early 2002, prominent members of the Jabber community decided to once again submit the base Jabber protocols to the IETF, this time as an official submission by the JSF. The first submission was made in February ...

There is no practical way to do this using a telnet client, as you would have to type all of the XML yourself, which is incredibly impractical. There are however several command-line XMPP clients available, as discussed in this stack overflow question. List of Jabber Console Clients centericq Fama IM GNU Freetalk mcabber If you are ...

There are a lot of enterprise/corporate instant messaging solutions out there. Typically what's best for your organization depends on what you need it to integrate with. The big ones that I know of include: Microsoft Lync (formerly Office Communicator), but the only platforms supported are Windows and OS X & iOS. HipChat (recently acquired by ...

Also I expect my messages to be delivered in the end independently of whether the peer is online now or not (i.e. eventually the message will arrive when we both will be online). XMPP servers/clients usually support sending messages to offline contacts. These XEPs might be relevant (maybe there are more): XEP-0013: Flexible Offline Message Retrieval ...

Wikipedia ref -- Free Jabber Clients. Jabber uses XMPP -- List of XMPP client software. Here is a frequently updated list of registered Public XMPP Services. In addition to large, well-known services such as Google Talk, Live Journal Talk, Nimbuzz, and Ovi, there are also many smaller services run by volunteers in the XMPP community. And, Pidgin is a ...

Empathy has been getting alot of attention recently. Works on about as many networks as pidgin, but it lacks several of the plugins.

MCabber MCabber is a (quite popular, I think) text-mode client. mcabber is a small Jabber console client. mcabber includes features such as SASL/SSL/TLS support, MUC (Multi-User Chat) support, history logging, command completion, OpenPGP encryption, OTR (Off-the-Record Messaging) support, dynamic modules and external action triggers. Finch (Pidgin) ...

Since your question is software independent, the generic answer is that XEP-0136 defines server side message archiving procedures for Jabber. In theory your client software would have to enable message archiving with your server. The practical problem here is that I do not know of any server (nor client for that matter) that implements XEP-0136.

For KDE users, Kopete is an excellent alternative. Empathy is also quite good and seems to be improving at a fast clip. Psi natively supports only XMPP, but can connect to other major networks via gateways.

There's a very interesting blog post from Michael Schurter with a Python script which extracts all passwords from the keyring, which is basically the same functionality which is achieved via Seahorse. The comments are also pointing to a little Pyhton application called gkeyring, which does the same thing.

mcabber (man) is available via Homebrew.

There is a Perl script that can be usefull, but only for sending: sendxmpp

I'm thinking bitlbee and ii maybe. My idea is basically that you have a setup of bitlbee running,which connects to a series of IM services and presents a IRC-server for you to connect to. Then you use ii, which is a fs-based IRC-client, it creates a directory structure with all channels, queries and so on that you are connected to. I haven't used it myself ...

You simply add the other user's address (user@domain). If they don't receive an authorization request, it might be a problem at their side.

To use Google Talk with a third-party email address--despite the abilities of Android and iGoogle--it seems you really must add Gmail to your account. If you visit gmail.com while logged in to your non-gmail Google account, you'll be presented with a form to sign up: Welcome to Gmail You're currently signed in to your user@example.edu Google ...

What is the difference between Jabber and XMPP? Since 2004 XMPP is the IETF-approved instant messaging and presence protocol. XMPP is based on the Jabber protocol that evolves since 1998. Basically programming Jabber software today means programming XMPP compliant software. According to : http://wiki.xmpp.org/web/Jabber_Programmer's_Guide It ...

It might be possible to use something like this (I'm not recommending it as I haven't tried it, it was the first thing that came up in Google when searching for Jabber Web Chat) Jabber Web Chat Since port 80 is open, this might work.

Pidgin. Check Tools > System Log. It does it for all the account types, not just Jabber.

This is fixed here. The new feature can be found in the Adium 1.5 nightly builds here. Those nightlies might be pretty unstable. I don't know if they work yet, I'm just now trying one out for the same reason. So far so good.

If you are thinking about deployment your own chat service over your company intranet, you should look at Openfire. OpenFire It's very easy to setup (just require a server with a JVM if I remember) and it's compatible with all XMPP client. I set it up 18 months ago and forget how it work since, as it is a 0 maintenance tool !

That was basically my first question on aardvark. I know just of 3 good options: As Alexander said, Google Talk. You have to configure it using another Jabber Client such as Psy, on linux. The keywords here are gateway and transport. It's not easy, but this will give you the best results. As you've suggested, a web client. There are many clients out ...

Figured it out. On a lark I tried restarting the server after setup. After it restarted I was able to log in.

This solved the problem for me: Disable the accounts in Empathy (F4). Go to seahorse (applications > accessories). Select the password tab > remove the passwords for the accounts in question. Enable the accounts back and re-enter the password in Empathy (F4) The "network error" in my case was not a connection error (the accounts where working in my other ...

As I've said elsewhere, I use a combination of irssi and BitlBee for my instant messaging needs. It isn't flashy like a desktop IM client. Quadpoint has lots of different articles about using Irssi here.

Kopete, Psi and Gossip are 3 good options for you. Empathy is new, if you've time for testing it out you can try that as well. Other options :(irssi,Bitbee), it depends your needs though.

I know you want alternatives, the best is probably empathy, but i wouldn't switch away until you've updated to the latest version (which has working XMPP Video and audio in ubuntu) I think an update will fix your problems, if not: Empathy Kopete Psi Coccinella Jabbin Gajim I think this might work too emesene
