Jabber servers/xochat.org

(Redirected from Xochat.org Community Server)
Jump to: navigation, search

XOchat.org community server was one of the first public community servers available. There were regularly 80 users online.

To setup your XO, open the terminal activity and type:

  % sugar-control-panel -s jabber xochat.org

Restart Sugar/X (ctrl-alt-erase) and you will connect to the jabber server.

Regional Chat servers

We have set up xochat.org to have various regional servers. Sometimes, if too many people join one server - sugar will slow down. You can alleviate the slowdown by joining a regional server that isn't too crowded.

To add a regional server in your area, send a wikimail to Harper Reed
