Now this makes me peeved… I’ve been trying to install jabberd, the Jabber server. Now, I try on Mac OS X, no luck, I try on Yellow Dog Linux, no luck, but that’s a whole other problem involving GCC that I won’t get into. I then try under Red Hat Linux, and while things seem to work, there are some firewall issues I haven’t resolved yet. I decide, against my better judgement, to try the Windows version. It works. And, it was easy. Damn. I hate you Windows…
Officially the Windows version is ‘unsupported’ and I don’t plan to use it for anything more than testing… So there.
And yes, I’m once again looking into Jabber as a presence and IM platform.
