Setting up a Jabber Client
You need two things to start using Jabber, and to participate in VirtualGPN.
- A Jabber Account
- A Jabber Client
After your first GPN meeting, an account will be created for you and you'll receive an e-mail with your account details.
We recommend installing a Jabber client on your computer, however if you want to try Jabber without installing anything, there is a nice web-based client at www.meebo.com.
This is the simplest option, because the instructions are the same regardless of whether you're using Mac, Linux or Windows.
- Go to www.meebo.com.
- Click the lightbulb and sign in with your Jabber address and Password
- You should see a buddy list, there's a icon at the top right which is for joining a groupchat, click it.
- Enter the name and server of the virtualGPN groupchat. (If the address you've been given looks like an e-mail address, read it as name@server.)
- You should now be in the groupchat!
