    Default Zimbra Chat Question

    Hi, my users (zimbra OS 5.x) are asking if they can add non-zimbra people to their chat list. Since Zimbra is now owned by yahoo I wonder if you can only add zimbra accounts or zimbra and yahoo account (or hotmail,etc).

    Also, can my users transfer files during a chat? if so, how can I enable/disable that?

    thanks,

    They can easily use an chat application like Adium (Adium - Download) for OSX as their chat client for the Zimbra service. If they do they'll have the features you're requesting.

    Yes, pretty certain you need an external IM application (Pidgin, Pandion, etc) for file-transfer.

    The chat interoperability with Yahoo and AIM was disabled I believe, for some performance reasons... have not heard anything more recently. However, as it works now, you can interoperate with other XMPP servers/networks, such as Googletalk, if you expose two ports to the Internet and add some DNS records...

    I would say most Windows users are using Pandion at our setup... so yes, it does work. In Connections, port 5223, checkbox for Require SSL Encryption... and for web-client-IM <--> external-client properly showing status to each other (online, etc), I usually add a "/zcs" to the login, to specify that XMPP resource.

    hi gnyce,

    would it be possible to get setup information for this..?

    "you can interoperate with other XMPP servers/networks, such as Googletalk, if you expose two ports to the Internet and add some DNS records..."

    Sure - you can probably do a quick search on "XMPP DNS SRV" and get what you need.... like this:

    https://support.communigate.com/foru...thread.php?t=2

    What worked for us is to create two SRV DNS records for our DOMAIN.COM
    _xmpp-client._tcp.DOMAIN.COM port 5223 HOSTNAME.DOMAIN.COM

    _xmpp-server._tcp.DOMAIN.COM port 5269 HOSTNAME.DOMAIN.COM

    with HOSTNAME.DOMAIN.COM being your zimbra server and DOMAIN.COM being your domain, of course.

    The port 5223 is the IM client port, and the port 5269 is I think server discovery port. This also assumes that these two TCP ports are open to the Internet....

    hth,
    gnyce

    Try giving some details about your exact problem and steps to reproduce it. This thread is about Zimbra Collaboration Suite, is that what you're using and if you are which version is it?
    Regards
