Wave In A Box‎ > ‎


Okay, so now you have WIAB up and running on your laptop. You can successfully login and talk to yourself. Now you're getting the urge to talk to other people on other Wave servers. In order to do this you need to Federate.

In order to federate your server you are going to need the following:

  • A domain name
  • An ssl certificate from a trusted source (in this case, we use StartSSL)
  • An XMPP server

Wave relies on trusted connections to communicate. In order to facilitate this every message sent by a Wave server is signed against an SSL certificate
