Interestingly, I am looking at this at the moment.  Unfortunately, the Jabber client in the toolkit has a bit of code that assumes that the XML attributes use single inverted commas.  I am just fiddling with the Openfire jabber source code to add the appropriate bit that will hopefully make it work with single inverted commas (to avoid needing to upgrade everyone's client).

I will put it somewhere when I have done and let the list know.

Dear all,

We received porn and ads to the text chat in our Venue Server Lobby
room. I have checked the jabber server the venue client uses is the following

       "VenueServer.textHost" : 'jabber.mcs.anl.gov',

I wonder if there are some documents that explain how to deploy our own
jabber server. Or at least a way an admin can add some filters to
avoid non allowed IP addresses send messages.

Thanking you in advance.
Kind regards,
