We use the free google apps for domains. I was wondering if and how to use the GTalk client for google apps for domains ?

I can currently use my gmail ID with gtalk but if I want to use my google apps for domains ID on Gtalk, how do I do that ? Is that supported ?

thank you,

BR,

Yes, login username would be <username>@<domain>

I use it.

  • @sathya, is gtalk a webapp or a locally-installed program? – quack quixote Apr 8 '10 at 5:55
  • gtalk : it is a thick client app. It also is available as part of gmail. – anjanbacchu Apr 8 '10 at 6:34
  • @quack quixote : Both actually - there's a standalone app ( google.com/talk ) as well as the webclient built-into Gmail/Gmail for Apps – Sathyajith Bhat Apr 8 '10 at 6:42
  • Don't forget that you need to generate an application specific password for the client if you're using 2-factor authentication. – Dave May 25 '11 at 0:54

I haven't ever tried using the Google Talk client with Apps, but Google has a KB article about using the Pidgin IM client to connect to Talk services. I've used Pidgin before, and actually prefer it to Google Talk, so you may want to try that out.

If you use OS X you can use iChat to connect to Google talk. Though I strongly recommend the free chat client Adium

I use digsby, an IM client which support multiple login with different accounts. It supports Gtalk/Gmail accounts and can use Google Apps logins also.
