Due to scalability issues, jabber servers can currently only handle up to about 150 users at a time. It is best if specific communities run their own servers - by geographic region, by special interest, whether for kids/parents only or adult users...

To set up your own server, see instructions at Run your own jabber server.


Connecting to a community jabber server

If you want to connect quickly, simply open terminal. Then type the following commands :

sugar-control-panel -s jabber jabber.server.url

replace jabber.server.url with the jabber server you with to use

then restart Sugar (warning: close activities first to save) by pressing ctrl+alt+erase, then go to the neighborhood view and have fun!


Community Server Directory

If you want to publicize your server, please list it below. In "community", specify who should use this server - be as specific as possible.
