Does anyone know of a GUI for the configuration and management of a Jabber(2) server on Linux? Shows logged-in users, allows you to ban/remove users, general configuration and monitoring?

Looking for recommendations from people who have used it!

Thanks in advance!

The Openfire server is an Jabber server that has a pretty slick GUI built in:


I used this for over a year at a previous position and never had any interoperability issues with the common desktop clients or with iChat.

It's GPL licensed, though they have some other products (also Jabber based I believe) aimed at businesses.

You can check out webmin. They have a Jabber module. I have never used it, but it is there. Good luck, hope that helps.
