I've just installed Openfire and SparkWeb under Apache HTTP Server to try it out, using GTalk transports via IM Gateway plugin.
Openfire was a breeze to configure. I can't say the same thing about SparkWeb, but I managed to get it to work fine eventually.
But a problem with SparkWeb remains: I'm in Portugal and therefore my keyboard is not english. And via Sparkweb, I can't use pratically all main characters used for smileys, like ":" or ")". I can't even type in a question mark - a aphostrophe outputs instead.
I'm just assuming SparkWeb thinks I should have an english keyboard, but I'm not sure that's the problem. Maybe just some configuration option I should know about?
