Announcement function

Is there any way the “Send Administrative Message” function can be duplicated from the commandline of an openfire server?

No, thats not possible with the build-in features. However, you could write a plugin that does the job, but such would need communication between the applications, which is complicated.

The Helga-Bot has a “commandline like” feature for sending announcements. You could use some xmpp client library to connect to Helga (or your own plugin) and send your announcement.

Pooey. Thanks for the quick response.
