Accessing chat window through web page link

I am having a messenger implemented in jabber/xmpp protocol . I want to access the chat window of a particular member in my list by clicking a link in the web page . How can I do that ??

In AOL I can access the same using the link

href=Aim:goim?screenname=suneesh So that the chat window of that particular member will be opened

Is there any way so that I can achieve the same ??

Thanks

Suneesh

Hi Suneesh,

try href=xmpp:user@jabber.org

Firefox and Mozilla need some tweaking:

Hi JC

What we need to do in the case of IE ? And I have one more question regarding the network.protocol-handler.app.xmpp string value .Is this the handler application that should reside inside the client or an external application we need to develop

Thanks,

Suneesh

Hi

I have set the network.protocol-handler.external.xmpp variable as true and the

network.protocol-handler.app.xmpp value as

C:\Program Files\Messenger\Messenger.exe and typed the url xmpp:suneesh.raman@mydomain.com but I am getting the message that the “xmpp is not a registered protocol” . I am using OS as Windows XP and firefox version 1.0 . Any one has any idea why this is happening ???

Thanks

Is your Messenger capable of handling XMPP-Uris ?

With Exodus it works for me.

network.protocol-handler.app.xmpp = c:\programme\exodus\exodus.exe

network.protocol-handler.external.xmpp = true

Hi JC,

is there a list of clients capable of handling XMPP-URIs?

Also, is there a way to add via web link a user to my roster?

thanks,
