HCoop is running a closed registration [http://jabber.org Jabber] server.

We are using ejabberd 2.x with the PAM authentication method. This means that your Kerberos password is now your Jabber password, and that every HCoop member has an account.

1. Client Setup

$USER refers to your Jabber username.

Please add info for any clients you use.

1.1. Logging in / Adding a New Account

1.1.1. Adium


  1. Open the Preferences dialog (Adium->Preferences or Command-comma)

  2. Go to the "Accounts" section
  3. Select "Jabber" from the "+" menu in the lower-left corner
  4. Enter "$USER@hcoop.net" in the "Jabber ID" field

  5. Enter your password in the "Password" field
  6. Click "OK"

1.1.2. Agile Messenger


  1. Add a new account of type "XMPP"
  2. Enter "$USER@hcoop.net" as the username

  3. Enter your password

Note that your resource will be "Work" and you cannot change this (as far as I can tell)

1.1.3. Gaim / Pidgin


  1. Open the Accounts dialog (Tools->Accounts or C-a)

  2. Add a new account
  3. Set the type to Jabber
  4. Screen Name = $USER, Server = hcoop.net

1.2. Changing Your Password

Since we use PAM now to change your password you must change your system wide password using the normal account password changing process.
