SILC Client Quick Setup

SILC Client Quick Setup

Key Exchange

On a side note, gaim does expect some key exchanges to work smoother. This can get a little complicated...but only a little. You can just tell it "ok" and "cancel" to key problems as appropriate, but this tends to not use the standard validation features.

If you are not behind a firewall, newer gaim versions have an auto send option to automate all this. If not, you will have to do it manually.


Sometimes problems happen that can drive you nuts. Here are a few tips on starting over to fix them.


Gaim works with many other protocols besides SILC. Gaim also supports multiple logins to different servers as different users. You can use gaim with these other servers at the same time but keep in mind that you are only chatting ENCRYPTED through the SILC server, NOT the others.
