• Enabling PSI to connect to Ichat server

    For whatever reason we have a hell of a time getting Linux chat clients to connect to our Ichat server using SSL. The simplest way we have found so far is to install PSI (0.1.0) and the TLS support. To make it all work, just do the following (instructions based on Gutsy 7.10):

    sudo apt-get install psi qca-tls

    If you do not install the qca-tls, you will receive an error when you try to check ‘enable SSL\TLS’ saying the plugin is not available. Finally, when you are setting up the account, you will need to select the Allow Plaintext Login. Failure to select that results in an unknown login method error.
