Apple iChat is unable to connect to Jive Messenger


After upgrading from Jive 2.1.4 to 2.3.0, I’‘m unable to connect to Jive from an iChat client. At first I thought something was wacked on that one machine and didn’‘t give it much thought. But now I’'ve verified with a different machine and a different account.

Below is a snippet from the debug log.

Any thoughts?

Also, not sure if this helps, but I have security turned off:

Server > Security Settings > Client Connection Security > Custom > SSL and TLS both set to off.


Just ran up latest build from SVN and connected using iChat to my local JM. I set the security as you described and it all worked!

So perhaps there is a problem with the upgrade or network changes? At this point it does not seem to be a JM problem, but a configuration problem.
