An online chat/instant messaging service, Jabber, is available to all ITS employees. Using K-State Jabber, ITS employees can securely chat online with each other. Currently, this service is only available ITS employees.
To use K-State Jabber, you must first install a chat client. Any chat client that uses XMPP can be used for K-State Jabber. This includes Pidgin, Adium, iChat, Psi, Trillian, and more. Many ITS employees use Pidgin on their PC and Adium on their Mac.
After installing, an auto-populated group called ITS will be added to your "buddy list". This includes all ITS employees that are using K-State Jabber. Additionally, you can also add any other person, ITS employee or not, to your buddy list.
