Instant Messaging (XMPP)

Instant-message platform for UVM.

chat.uvm.edu runs an XMPP-compliant (formerly "Jabber", before Cisco bought the trademark) IM and conferencing protocol.  Use it to have one-on-one realtime text chat with another UVM person, or a group chat, without that information traveling unencrypted through non-UVM systems.

Features

  • Open standards (XMPP)
  • Persistent chat rooms: create a chat room for your department or project team to chat in
  • All connections over TLS, so encrypted over the wire.
