Setting Up a Jabber Client

 

1.       The first step is to download a Jabber client.  Here is a list of clients we have tested for Windows and where they can be found:

 

Exodus                   - http://www.jabberstudio.org/projects/exodus/releases/

Rhymbox                - http://www.rhymbox.com/download/

 

I recommend using Rhymbox it has the most refined interface.  Additional clients can be found at www.jabber.org.

 

2.       The next step is to log onto a server.  Currently there are two servers, surfaris.cs.nps.navy.mil inside the firewall and xchat.movesinstitute.org outside.  Service is not available across the firewall at this time.  So users using Jabber outside the firewall can not be contacted from inside and vise versa.

 

Here are the settings for an account inside the firewall (For outside substitute surfaris.cs.nps.navy.mil with xchat.movesinstitute.org):

 

(Filling out additional information is optional and can be done at a later time.)

 

Here is some additional information if you wish to create a separate profile:

 

Profile

Create a Username: (Your choice)

Server: surfaris.cs.nps.navy.mil or xchat.movesinstitute.org

Password: (Your choice – must have one)

 

Connection

Type: Normal

Host: surfaris.cs.nps.navy.mil or xchat.movesinstitute.org

Port: 5222

 

3.       The next step is to join a conference room.  Currently the rooms inside and outside the firewall will have the same name but not the same content.  To join a conference room click on “find a conference room” then “join room” the room names are “savage” and “xj3d” (This process will be slightly different for different clients).  The JID’s (Jabber ID’s) are:

savage@conference.surfaris.cs.nps.navy.mil

xj3d@conference.surfaris.cs.nps.navy.mil

savage@conference.xchat.movesinstitute.org

xj3d@conference.xchat.movesinstitute.org

 

4.       To contact an individual enter their JID:  username@surfaris.cs.nps.navy.mil
