The IPFire Project uses XMPP (aka Jabber) for instant messaging as a secure channel between developers and to be independent from any large vendors who might eavesdrop on our conversations.
Use the following login credentials:
|Username:||first name.last email@example.com|
|Password:||your account password|
The server requires your client to use SSL/TLS and is of course connected to the global Jabber network.
Since Feb 23rd, 2014, the Jabber server requires SSL/TLS connections for server-to-server connections as well.
Conferences are available at conference.ipfire.org.
