How to join the Omea XMPP MUC Room (


XMPP stands for the Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol, the protocol that enpowers such instant messaging services as Jabber, Google Talk, LJ Talk, and so on.

If you have an account in any of these, and some client software to go online, then you can participate in XMPP communications.

MUC Room is a multi-user chat room, like an IRC Channel incarnation on top of the modern technology.

Joining a Room

To join a MUC Room, you need an XMPP client that supports the MUC profile. There's a selection of XMPP client software listed at Google or Jabber.Org. Unfortunately, the stock Google Talk client software is poor of its feature set and would not support Multi-User Chats, so an alternative is to be used.

Generally, to join a room you should execute the "Join Group" action from the menu or toolbar of the client. The full name of the room is, or, if there are separate Server and Group fields, their values should be and omea, respectively. Enter a Nickname of your choice and leave the Password field blank.
