XMPP services @ social.isurf.ca


!iSurf Support

As there was a question posted about this I wanted to create a public post here to mention that we do have an XMPP chat server here @ social.isurf.ca and you are able to use it since you're a social.isurf.ca user!

The clients that I am familiar with that work with XMPP are: Pidgin, Gajim (Linux/Windows desktop clients), Conversations and Xabber for Android. There's clients for MacOS and IOS as well, a list of clients can be found at xmpp.org.

The only tie-in to the Friendica software at this point is authentication, so that means your roster of contacts and whatnot for XMPP contacts is separate from your Friendica contacts.

If you want to try it out at any point, your username for XMPP is username@social.isurf.ca . (if your username on social.isurf.ca was 'bob', then it would be bob@social.isurf.ca )

At some point in the future I would like to see a chat widget show up in Friendica - hopefully that can be fixed in the not too distant future.
