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.
2. Client Setup
$USER refers to your HCoop username.
Please add info for any clients you use.
2.1. Logging in / Adding a New Account
Open the Preferences dialog (Adium->Preferences or Command-comma)
- Go to the "Accounts" section
- Select "Jabber" from the "+" menu in the lower-left corner
Enter "$USER@hcoop.net" in the "Jabber ID" field
- Enter your password in the "Password" field
- Click "OK"
Note: This may be called "XMPP" instead of jabber for newer Adium clients ... the settings are still pretty much the same.
2.1.2. Agile Messenger
- Add a new account of type "XMPP"
Enter "$USER@hcoop.net" as the username
- Enter your password
Note that your resource will be "Work" and you cannot change this (as far as I can tell)
2.1.3. Gaim / Pidgin
Open the Accounts dialog (Tools->Accounts or C-a)
- Add a new account
- Set the type to Jabber (in Gaim) or XMPP (in Pidgin)
Screen Name = $USER, Server = hcoop.net
2.2. 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.
