If you have a Mac and want to use iChat to connect to the Jabber (xmpp) network, please
follow the .
I, myself, use Psi in my Macs, and my coleagues use it Windows environments.
According to their it can be
used in Linux too. I advice you, though, to use the jabber client included with your distro
since that way you will be updated whever it (the distibution) is updated.
For us, Psi has all the
features you may require, even administrative functions.
It is, also, a very active project with
new versions every now and then. You can download it from
Beside Psi, there are other software that can be found
in the the jabber.org .
To configure Psi to use port 80, you have to open the "Modify
account" option menu:
In the conection tab, you check "Manually Specify Server Host/Port" and in there type jabber80.com.
In the Port field you type either 80 or 443. I recomend to use 443 since it works more often and
it is encrypted. If you choose 443, then you have to select, in Encrypt Conection -> Legacy SSl, as shown.
