Right, but I did mention that in my previous post ;-)

Again though, the ideal method of handling this case would be to toss a Linux box in the corner running the Jabber server -- perhaps on Gigabyte Ethernet -- and just let the Windows and Mac Boxen access the Jabber server via the network.

One thing I forgot to mention in my original post though is that both versions of Jabber were designed to be scalable, and if you find that running a Jabber server on one box isn't fast enough, you can do some form of load balancing to help offset some of the traffic.

We're actually beginning to tinker with using Jabber for this purpose here at my workplace, I'll be sure to post the results of how it all goes.

    Jabber sounds like a wonderful solution to this problem. I will talk to my boss about the possibility of getting myself a little linux server... He will like the APIs for all the different languages

    My boss is pushing me to write this in C++ rather than Perl, but I have been avoiding it saying that I have better resources for Perl. Thanks to you guys, I am right!

    But this does look promising...
