Thanks for your reply. I tried running Jabber and it would not start (The server). Is there a way i am supposed to setup the server. Anyhelp would be appreciated.

It depends which implementation of Jabber you're using. There are several, did you take a look through your package manager to find one that was pre-compiled for your distro?
If you need any help with this matter you're going to have to give us some details, e.g.:
- what jabber server
- what changes to the default config did you make
- what does the log file say when you try to start it
that sort of thing

Sorry for not giving enough details. I tried jabberd. And I had to compile it from source. I run Fedora Core 5.
There was no modifications to the default configuration (This is probobaly the part i need the most help with).
When I attempt to start the server it says it is unable to listen on some ports. I cant remember what these ports are but it is only 2 or 3 ports.

If you use KYum you can browse through the repositories for a binary built jabber server. I have ejabberd running here. You can install that with 'yum -y ejabberd'. The config was quite easy.
