I'm successfully running pyAIMt, pyMSNt and pyICQt with my DJabberd
instance right now. My config looks something like this:
ChildService msn.mydomain.com MSN Messenger Transport
ChildService aim.mydomain.com AIM Transport
ChildService icq.mydomain.com ICQ Transport
<Plugin DJabberd::PresenceChecker::Local />
<Plugin DJabberd::Delivery::Local />
<Plugin DJabberd::Delivery::S2S />
You then just need to configure each transport to match the secret and
port configured in DJabberd. Of course, each of your employees will need
to set up an account with each additional network they need to use. Most
Jabber clients make it really easy to register with the above
transports, automatically detecting them using service discovery.
(That's what the ChildService lines do above.)
It'd be really neat if someone were to write some in-process transports
for these networks, integrating with the Danga::Socket event loop, but
thus far I've not heard of such a thing being in progress.
