It would help a lot if you posted what you did, what didn't work, and how you noticed that it doesn't work ...
I appreciate gifts from my Amazon wishlist.

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.

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.
