What is a Jabber Server

A (specially configured) jabber server is used to allow multiple XOs/Sugar instances to connect and collaborate remotely. Imagine that a school in Peru and a school in Canada wanted to collaborate via their XOs. The mesh network doesn't stretch that far, but the two schools could use a Jabber server to communicate.

Currently, jabber servers can handle up to about 150 users due to scalability issues. So it makes more sense for there to be several community run servers, for specific or general purposes. The existing community servers are organized - by geographic region, by special interest, kids or parents or whatever their users like.

To set up your own community or private server, see: Run your own jabber server.
