I am in a bind. Timewise and tehcnically. Here’‘s the skinny…I need to get a client up and running that has transports/gateways to AIM, MSN, yahoo, jabber/widlfire AND I need to have the excellent search capabilities of Spark or Exodus. As I was having issues (okay downright frustration) getting the transports installed on my wildfire server (linux), I was going to go the Trillan/GAIM client route that already has the transports in them. But their search features suck or are non-existent. Trillian wants to search jaber.org and I can’‘t figure out how to get it to point to my internal server. GAIM doesn’‘t even search, it just adds clients by their JID, but you have to know someone’'s JID to add them. Not efficient at all.
Does anyone know if the iq:search plugins for wildfire work with GAIM yet? Or how does anyone else search for contacts (BESIDES the JID, my users are idiots and need to search by first or last name)?
OR does anyone have any updated py* or other transport install info that might be newer than what’‘s on the ejabberd site? Any other suggestions on how to get the transports working on wildfire? For some reason when I downloaded all the python, twisted, openssl and crypto gz files, i tried to untar them and got all these error messages. I’'m not guru but I can walk around linux.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
