Messaging System

The messaging system allows to immediately send notifications about an event to the users of the Online group. It uses XMPP External link mark, an instant messaging platform that provides clients for Windows and Linux, and a tool for receiving messages through the command line interface when users are logged in to a server.

Installation guide:


  • Online account - The messaging system uses the Online accounts, that means you can login with the same username name and password that you use for connecting to the gateways, the control PCs, etc.
  • XMPP/Jabber client - For sending and receiving messages you need a client that supports the XMPP (Jabber) protocol. On the Online PCs Pidgin has been installed and configured, but you can use any other client that you want (Kopete, Adium, Trillian, etc).


Use the following information for configuring your client:

XMPP or Jabber
(your Online network username)
Jabber ID (*)
(your Online network username)
(your Online network password)

(*) Required by some clients.
