Just last night, while looking for an XMPP client for one of my mates, I remembered another mate mentioning something called "Spark", which was a term used at his previous job for their internal XMPP server. I came across a client called Spark by Ignite Realtime, and as a result, noticed that they also offer an XMPP server solution called OpenFire. I decided to give it a try, as I have a rather strong affinity for the protocol, and I have always wanted to attempt to run an internal XMPP gateway for other protocols.

It took very little effort to get the server running, and I am currently using it to connect to Google Talk, my primary XMPP account, my old LJ Talk, AOL Messenger, and Yahoo! Messenger. The only problem I have run into is that I constantly close the server by mistake, rather than simply minimizing the control panel. However, I have fixed this issue by running it as a Windows service, rather than from the executable.

I feel accomplished. I now have a running XMPP gateway that I can use for my needs, even if I cannot run it as a public-facing XMPP server. It will also give me a chance to experiment with XMPP bots for other application.
