Hi,
I've looked around but not found an answer to this question....
I'd like to have IM using the same "account" as our asterisk extensions, so the guys can IM each other from their soft phones. - it can then do online / offline and presence all in once place.
I really don't want to have to maintain an additional set of accounts for each user  and have them manage 2 sets of contacts, 2 apps and 2 things to remember each time they're away or back.
I'm sure there must be some apps / something out there to make this happen?
Thanks
Steven

which version are you using. are you using a distro like freepbx to control it. What you need are softphones that know how to use it. Xlite has an option that turns on presence and im ( http://www.easyofficephone.com/images/xlite-4-config1.jpg )

Depending on the install, this will tell me which route you need to take, SIMPLE, XMPP.

I'm using asterisk now - it has freepbx - it was installed last week and everything's pretty much up to date.
I use x-lite and bria on the workstations and mobiles. I don't really care about the mobiles tho.
Thanks
Steve

well i have done a bunch of looking around and i have found that openfire will be your best bet. but to let you know that they will not need two programs as they can register with xlite. when you set up a contact. they register on the same channels as jabber and XMPP (which is controlled by openfire and the asterisk im plugin).

yum install openfire

Once you configure their contacts they will see each other and chat.

this works just change your server from ideasip to then IP of your server.

I haven't done it yet, but on paper it's all looking like it's going to work.
