I’‘m stuck. I’‘ve trried a few clients and am not finding success in getting peer-to-peer chat working. In fact, many clients don’'t seem to be able to login at all.
But first, I can’‘t find a price for JM listed anywhere on jivesoftware.org… this is why I’‘m using it. So if it’'s not free, and peer-2-peer is disabled for demo servers… (???)
Second, GAIM can login fine, except that users can only chat in rooms, not peer-2-peer. Buddy icons also say ‘‘not authorized’’ & ‘‘offline’’. I’'ve read here that this might be a GAIM bug.
Third, I’‘ve tried these clients and aren’'t having much success:
Login Peer2-Peer Rooms From-Client
yes no no Trillian Pro 2 (Jabber plugin)
yes no yes GAIM
no – – Gush
yes no no TKabber
no – – Coccinella (many application errors/bugs)
Now, enabling shared groups and adding two test accounts into a group, magically makes peer-2peer work. But admittedly there’‘s little to go on how this all works. I’'ve scoured this forum for hints on the mechanics of this… so should I gust creat one big group and put my 30 users in it?
Thanks for any hints/advice you can give me
