iChat (previously iChat AV) was an instant messaging software application developed by Apple Inc. for use on its Mac OS X operating system. It supported instant text messaging over XMPP/Jingle or OSCAR (AIM) protocol, audio and video calling, and screen-sharing capabilities. It also allowed for local network discussion with users discovered through Bonjour protocols.
macOS users can connect a KodeNet Jabber ID with the following steps.
The XMPP/Jabber account should now show it is connected as indicated by the green circle.
By default newly connected accounts will see a Support contact in the roster list. This contact is not required to have and can be removed or re-added at anytime. This contact is simply available for questions and assistance.
