Preface

This will help you configure your XMPP client to login to the NM HamWAN XMPP server. This allows the client to send and receive IM and accessing Multi-User Conferences (Chat Rooms)

The XMPP server is part of your XMPP ID. For example, in the ID callsign@nmhamwan.net, nmhamwan.net would be the server to use.

Pre-Configuration

To get your password you can send an email to netops@nmhamwan.net (or call by phone) and include your call sign.

After your call sign is provisioned we will contact you with the required password.

Alternatively if your host is on the AMPRnet, and your client allows creation on new accounts, you can add your account directly from the client.
