Networks may link Sugar users to each other in order to chat, interact and collaborate. Many Sugar activities have automatic collaboration and chat features.
For Sugar users on a local network, the linking is automatic, using Link-local XMPP connection management via the Telepathy Salut software. Each Sugar user will be shown on the [http Jabberneighborhood_view.html Neighbourhood View] networks link Sugar users to each other in order to chat, interact and collaborate. There are global Sugar Jabber networks, or regional ones hosted by organizations and individuals around the world. You can choose whichever Jabber network you wish to connect to. Connecting Sugar to one of these networks will greatly enhance your Sugar experience.
Related InformationFor Sugar users distributed over a wide area network, linking can be through an XMPP or [ Jabber] server. A server is operated by Sugar Labs for testing, and some schools or teams may run their own server.
*'''Talk to your network administrator for the best Jabber Servers''' - server to use. See [[Community list of Jabber networks around the world]my_settings.html#network My Settings, Network, 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!  But what if you wish to connect to one of several jabber servers because you belong to several communities/SIGs? I can live with one-at-a-time, but it would be wonderful if I could pick from a list I've created. Or at least a list of jabber servers I've previously connected to. How about a syntax for "choice <n> from file <x>" and "show me choices in file <x>"? -- davewa   See also [[Category:Community Jabberservers]].
