IDEtalk and Eclipse


I work in an environment where internet access is locked down where I run my IDE so we can't use an internet IM, I would like to use something like IDEtalk, but most of my colleagues use Eclipse.

Does anyone know of a plugin for Eclipse that will communicate with IDEtalk or a standalone client that will communicate?

Is there an alternative plugin for Intellij with an Eclipse plugin?

Any ideas? We have tried a few standalone peer-to-peer clients (there are too many to try them all), but they all seem to have reliability issues.

Thanks in advance

IDETalk uses XMPP protocol also known as Jabber. You may try installing one of XMPP servers on a spare PC: I have never tried it myself and unfortunately I can't give any practical recommendations which one is better. Also any client supporting XMPP(Jabber) should be able to communicate with IntelliJ's IDETalk plug-in.
