This is a short tutorial on how to configure XMPP account on X-Lite, Zoiper and Jitsi Sofphones to be used with XMPP server like Openfire. I’m writing this because someone requested for it.

I had earlier written few tutorials related to Openfire XMPP server. So the soft-phones shown here will be configured so that they can be able to send Instant messages to other peers.
If you’re interested in testing this tutorial and don’t have a running XMPP server, you can try:
