Google Talk for IDETalk

As far as I know Google Talk uses the Jabber protocol.

Is there any way to connect IDETalk to the Google Talk server?

In the IDETalk window click the little J icon at the bottom to get the Jabber Server Conection Settings dialog. Switch to "Use existing account" and use talk.google.com as the server.

I can't try this myself since I'm firewalled up to the eyeballs at work and while the normal Google Talk client works (via web proxy I assume), IDETalk just displays (502) in that dialog when I try.

It doesn't work here even if I shutdown my outpost firewall and take the right port which is 5223 instead of 5222 for talk.google.com. Don't know why. Google Talk is not encrypted. Possibly IDETalk tries to talk over SSL or something like that.

We have a local Jabber server and I just tried connecting to that instead. It failed as well but with a different error: SASL authentication failed. Not sure what this is exactly, is it SSL? Are there other authentication schemes which could be used?

Thanks,
Gordon

I get the 502 error.

I am running IDETalk 0.5.6.2 on idea 5201 - I do not see the "little J" icon in the IDETalk window. When I want to add an user, IDEA is running into internal error.

Wondering what version of IDETalk and IDEA you guys are running.

IDE Talk (version 1.0 it seems) is now distributed with IDEA in the Demetra EAP, so you should uninstall any user-installed version you may have transferred from a previous IDEA installation.

It doesn't work now (sorry, it's my fault). Watch the following
