Hi Natalia,
We had to kill the Jabber on our venue servers this morning.

We are currently looking at a way of deploying our own Jabber servers, but it is not straightforward.

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,
