6063Collaboration between learners is one of the most important features of Sugar. To enable collaboration in a classroom or home setting, it is necessary to establish the same type of connection for each computer. Computers can be connected through a School Server, a simple mesh if they are OLPC XOs, or an access point.

62When using an access point for the connection, the computers must all use the same Jabber server in order to collaborate. Please refer to the Sugar Control Panel discussion in the Personalizing Sugar chapter for details regarding the configuration of Jabber. Additional hints Neighborhood_key You make your connection from the Neighborhood View. 200px_Frame_detail_status Your current connection status is shown on the Frame. Also, the hover menu will indicate "Connected". It sometimes takes 2–3 tries to connect. To disconnect, select “Disconnect” from the hover menu that appears in either of the network status menus (See Step 4 above). AP_level Access points are represented by circles. The fill level indicates signal strength. AP_lock Access points that require keys have a lock icon. The color of the circle is calculated from the ESSID of the access point. The name of the access point is displayed when you hover over it. AP_blink You connect by “clicking” in the center of the circle. The center of the circle will blink while the laptop is trying to connect. Mesh_icon If you are using an OLPC XO computer, mesh points are represented by a series of concentric circles. The color of a mesh point is the same as your XO color. If your OLPC XO computer is “mesh enabled” and you have not connected to an AP, you will automatically be joined to a simple mesh network, enabling you to collaborate with others in the mesh, but not necessarily to access the Internet. Wireless_key_required You are prompted if the access point requires a key.
