We connected the JabberNow appliance to a local Fast Ethernet network containing Windows, Linux and Mac clients along with a variety of file, Web and database servers.

We also tested JabberNow's integration with AOL Instant Messenger and GoogleTalk public IM services. We used keyboard playback scripts to drive JabberNow clients to simulate 100 and 200 concurrent IM sessions.

For our security test, we obtained a copy of the W32/SDbot-ADD worm from an antimalware vendor and sent the worm via the JabberNow device to our clients.

We set up a Windows Server 2003 Primary Domain Controller configured for Active Directory to test JabberNow's Active Directory integration.
