In order to expand our offering of free public privacy tools
, we have started our own chat server with open registrations. The server uses XMPP ("Jabber") which is compatible with most popular instant messaging clients, and can be used to communicate with users of other XMPP servers, including Diaspora*.
We are announcing this here before listing ourselves on public registries in order to attract some early adopters so that we can work out any technical issues before advertising to a wider audience. Please check out our policies
before signing up.
To connect, configure your IM client for chat.gibberfish.org
on port 5222
using TLS encryption. Alternately, you can connect via Tor at 5kpdrdn4cxpby7mz.onion
. If you have any problems, please PM us here, or send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org via XMPP.
