Create an account

Anyone is free to register an account, most clients will automatically do that with a bit of information from your side.

  1. Download and install a client from http://xmpp.org/software/clients.shtml. If yours is listed, you can even keep using that.
  2. Look for “Register/Add an account”, you typically will need to enter a domain/server, username, password and a resource.

    Choose ‘thiessen.im’, ‘thiessen.org’ or ‘thiessen.it’ for the domain/server part, pick a username (e.g. firstname.surname) and a password.
    The resource will let you use your new Jabber/XMPP account simoultaneously from different locations e.g. ‘home’, ‘laptop’, ‘mobile’.

  3. Log in and start chatting with others on the Jabber network!
