To take advantage of the jabber-based collaboration, you should set
all the machines to the same jabber server from the Network menu
option in the Sugar Control Panel (The Control Panel is found in the
hover menu that appears on the XO icon on the Home View.) We are in
the process of compiling a better list of servers, but may I suggest
schoolserver.media.mit.edu as one option that seems to be running most
of the time.
