I’m using Open Fire with Pandion for four users at my home. It is configured to also relay AIM chat (which is amazingly useful and just what I wanted). I’m a little confused, though, on a few issues:
Can the chat history be stored on the server? Pandion stores it but it appears to be stored on the local computer. The goal here is to get “everything” on the server so switching computers makes basically no difference. I have all our computers setup with the same server-based Firefox profile, music database, my documents, desktop, etc…I like it all on the server so we can use any computer in the house without being unable to access something because it’s on another computer.
Why doesn’t the “Name” field get displayed instead of the firstname.lastname@example.org? I want the name field to show up and don’t want to have to configure it on every account if I don’t have to. Is this a Pandion issue? Anyone have any other suggestions for better chat clients? I want the best one I can get.
Can I have multiple computers logged on using the same logon? It seems like the best option would be to allow the same user to logon in multiple places and then just forward communications in both directions to the different parties.
