I've updated the Jabber demo that was the result of this Create Your Own Jabber Client With IP*Works! tutorial, so that it now uses SSL so that it is compatible with Google Talk and other Jabber servers that support SSL and SASL/Plain authentication. Here is the updated demo.
If Microsoft supported Jabber on Messenger, I would not have to ask all my MSN contacts to move to Google Talk. Same for AIM. Oh well. See ya MSN. See ya AIM. No more multi-IM client on my machines!

Update: No, you do not need to install IP*Works! SSL just to run this sample application. If you want to open the project in Visual Studio and modify and rebuild it, then yes you will need to download IPWorks SSL in order to do so.
