Thanks Sander.

for question1, I don't want people use other IM client software in my 
company. our client softroute has been updated and have others functions. 
the resource name can't be changed, and it only access to my company server. 
so, I need to block others client softroute when somebody use it login 
company's server.

question2,  because there are others personal information will be used in 
our company (which doesn't include in standard vcard table). I want to add 
them into vcard table.

That will be not possible as people can change that resource. I don't know 
it is possible in Gaim, but most other Jabber clients I know of have this

fyi: IMO it is a lot more interesting to have a resource like this:
client at computer (e.g. gaim at zeus). Advantages:
* if you login twice (e.g. laptop and desktop) with the same client you will
not see the "permanently signing on-off problem",
* you can use different clients at the same time on one computer,
* it is easy to manage for yourself,
* in a company you can see in the logs on which computers people are logged

What do you want to do exactly?
