Help us Test our new Public Chat Room

April 23, 2010 in non-tech, RemObjects

We’re currently experimenting with a public chat room for RemObjects personnel and customers. This channel is accessible through any Jabber/XMPP client (such as Google Talk, Pidgin, Psi, iChat, Adium, and many more) that lets you join chat rooms. To join, connect to your own jabber server, and find the “Join group chat” (or similar) option in your client. Enter these details:

  • Room: public
  • Server: conf.remobjects.com
  • Handle: (pick a nickname)
  • Password: (none required)

For example in the pidgin client, this looks like this:

Note that you don’t need a special account on our server for this. You can use your existing Google Chat, jabber.com, jabber.org or any other XMPP account.

Please also keep in mind that this channel is not an official support channel. It is a place to hang out and chat with fellow customers and RemObjects employees, but we won’t be there all the time, and we will not guarantee to have time to help you with technical problems or questions. But that doesn’t mean you won’t get answers.

Please let us know what you think.

  1. For all those using gmail …
    The connect server for the account (not the one for joining the chat) is –> talk.google.com.
    This is not automatically set, I use pidgin here, even if you make the account type of Google Chat …

    There is no need to set the
    - Force old (port 5223) SSL
    option in the >>Advanced<>Modify Account<< dialog.
