Jabber

Jabber (also called XMPP) is an instant messaging-, respectively chat-service and therefore an alternative to Facebook-chat, ICQ, MSN or similar services. Since many years we offer a Jabber-server (jabber.systemli.org) with open registering.

Contrary to the services mentioned above, we neither retain your contents nor your connection data.

To set up a connection to our server, you need a chat program. For using Jabber, there are different ones. For example Gajim (Windows/Linux), Monal (OS X), ChatSecure (iOS) or Conversations (Android).

To avoid spam accounts, the registration is only possible via browser.

We recommend using a program on your computer. If this is not possible (for example at university or at work), use our Web-Jabber.
