UCSD Jabber (or XMPP for Adium v.1.5.2+)


UCSD offers a Jabber Instant Messaging Service at chat.ucsd.edu. Jabber is an open-source chat protocol. This service allows UCSD users to easily transfer files and quickly send snippets of text without having to sign up for a separate service like .Mac and AIM. For example, if someone needs to send a file to another person at IGPP, they can send it quickly without having to use dropbox or email. And if quick, concise discussion is necessary, instant messages are a much more efficient mode of communication than email.
Anybody with an Active Directory (AD) login can setup a UCSD Jabber account.
1. Open up Adium.
2. Go to Adium > Preferences > Accounts .
3. Press " + " in the bottom left corner and choose " XMPP ."
4. Enter in your AD username (ex. johndoe@chat.ucsd.edu) and password.
