Connecting from behind a Firewall
Connecting for the First Time
After installing a chat software, you will need only your XMPP ID and your password to add your account to the client. Here we use Psi, an excellent XMPP client, as an example of how to do it.
From the menu, choose Account Setup.
Add a new account to the software's list of accounts. Do not "Register new account" because you have already created the account from the website.
Type in your exact XMPP ID and your password, choose the settings you prefer.
Change your status to "Online" to connect to the server.
Now you are connected and ready to chat.
