We are looking to give access to some of our employees to chat with each other - however we are worried about them abusing the privilege and chatting we friends outside work. We have decided to deploy our own XMPP Server to solve this. I'm looking for two things:
Experiences with a XMPP server in the ports tree
Alternative suggestions with related experiences
cross platform clients that are friendly to administrators would be nice, we are currently using pidgin. (I know I can't count)
Thanks in advance, its nice to have somewhere to turn where I feel I can trust the feedback I get.
EDIT I would prefer if the solution did not require java, it was mentioned that ejabberd did not, however it requires the diablo-jdk16 during compilation. (Open fire also requires a JDK)
