Last month I explained that I wanted to reduce my organization’s dependence on AIM due to its lack of security and the fact that we cannot control what takes places on their servers. I also mentioned that I was fairly new to jabber, and, due to lack of experience, I was hoping for a hand or two to help sort out the install/config process. While I did receive many alternative recommendations, sadly I didn’t get a single volunteer willing to help shoulder the responsibility of bringing any easy to follow tutorial (aimed at the uninitiated) to the EH masses. Determined to make it happen, I soldiered on. Sadly I have fallen short, I am approximately 70% done but have hit some fun snags which are listed below. Hopefully I can enlist the help of the EH-Net faithful for a little help.
