Sugar collaboration is built on top of XMPP (Jabber), an open and extensible instant messaging protocol. Collaboration can use either Link-local connections, or a server.

Collaboration via a server is more scalable, but requires special Sugar support in the server.

A server can be set up using the XS school server for school deployments.

Running your own server

Two different Jabber server programs are known to work with Sugar; prosody and ejabberd.


As used by the Sugar Labs Jabber server.

See Platform_Team/Prosody.


See Installing ejabberd for instructions on installing and configuring.
