Jabber connection for GTalk

I have been having to search the Internet each time I want to setup a client to use GTalk, so have decided to post here the general information I need to setup any jabber client:
  • Add a new jabber account.
  • Enter your screenname, everything before @gmail.com
  • You need to login to the server gmail.com
  • If supported by client, try to use TLS
  • Connection server is talk.google.com
  • Login with GMail password and you are set!
