It would help a lot if you posted what you did, what didn't work, and how you noticed that it doesn't work ...

Host maybe blocking outgoing connections on the jabber port, try jabber80.org ;)

Code: Select all

Jabber server: jabber.networx-bg.com
See jabber.org for a list of servers  
Jabber port: 5222
Leave blank unless you know it is not 5222  
Jabber username: ******
If this user is not registered it will be created if possible.  
Jabber password: ****** 
Jabber resource: board
The resource locates this particular connection, e.g. board, home, etc.  
Jabber Package Size: 20
This is the number of messages sent in one package. If set to 0 the message is sent immediatly and gets not queued for later sending. 

This worked for me (no errors) but I still haven't figured out it's purpose.

Thanks :)

:( Same error though 'Could not connect to Jabber server'

Could one of the writers of this software help me out here. Why won't it work?

It is my understanding that jabber is an instant messaging component that has been integrated into olympus. I didnt have the error problems you are mentioning kirsty but I dont know how to use the dang thing and would appreciate it if a developer or even a user who knows their way around jabber would lend a hand.

Well I didn't have any errors in my ACP but when I tried to enter my Jabber name in my UCP I got this error:
The name you entered is not a valid jabber account name.

When I tried it on a test board it worked beautifully.

It allows topic notifications to come via IM instead of e-mail. Very cool. :)
Also people can send you messages via Jabber from the board.
