4. Set Protocol to XMPP. Set Screen Name to your TJP username. Set domain to chat.thejapanesepage.com.

5. Click the advanced tab and set Connect Server to chat.thejapanesepage.com.

Press save and Pidgin will attempt to connect to the chat server. If everything goes well you'll be asked for a password, afterwards you should be connected.

Accessing The Room List

On your main buddy window go to Tools then Room List. Select the correct account, it should be like username@chat.thejapanesepage.com, then click Get List then Find Rooms.

You should now be shown the list of TJP chat rooms. Double click the room you wish to enter and have fun!
