IM Server?


We have recently blocked all IM traffic from our facility and now the developers here are screaming and crying that they can't get their work done w/o using AIM or Yahoo! I am looking for a simple Linux IM solution that I can add to the LAN for everyone to be able to IM across the internet. Are there any solutions that will run on a Linux server? I have never ran or stood up anything like this so I am hoping the solution is not too hard.

Thanks for any info!

This is the one we're implementing soon on our network:

http://jabberd.jabberstudio.org/

There are other Jabber servers out there, just do a quick google. Google Talk uses Jabber as well. On the client side Gaim and I'm sure there are others will connect to the server.

One idea anyway.

Jabber looks very nice so I checked out: http://www.jabber.org/software/servers.shtml

I can't seem to find a guide or list of things I will need to stand up this on a server. Am I looking in the wrong place?

Here's a guide for getting jabberd setup on Debian. This if you plan on using that Jabber server

http://www.debian-administration.org/articles/42

I know in the Gentoo wiki there's a guide for setting up jabberd on a Gentoo server. If you're using another distro you should be able to google a guide for your specific distro. Also, I believe there was a non distro specific guide on OnLAMP.com.

I would recommend ejabberd over jabberd.

You can also use the jabbin client for voice
