φ chat: Faculty jabber
What is Jabber?
Jabber ( XMPP protocol ) is an instant messaging system , the main advantage of which is open specification and distributed implementation.
How do I join?
Each FI user has their own Jabber account (JID) created
email@example.com with faculty password.
Connection configuration in different clients may differ, but usually you just need to choose the Jabber / XMPP protocol, fill in your JID
firstname.lastname@example.org and your password.
If you need to specify a more specific configuration, use the following parameters:
- port: 5222 (STARTTLS), or 5223 (SSL / TLS)
A very simple client is part of the Thunderbird mail program. However, it requires different settings:
- port: 5222
Communication of multiple users can be realized by means of so-called
conferences (discussion rooms, chat rooms, multi-user chat, MUC). Only users from the Faculty of Informatics can participate in conferences on our server. Please note that records from these conferences are archived and available to administrators. Conference rooms at FI have an address
místnost@chat.fi.muni.cz (can usually be used alone
místnost ). The general discussion is at
Searching for users and conferences are services accessible through the so-called service discovery . The details vary from client to client, but the use is basically intuitive.
Contacts from other servers
You can also send messages to any Jabber user connected to another server, as long as they support it and have no restrictions in this regard. Just add the appropriate JID to your contacts.
