I would like to know which direction Jive messenger is going when it comes to authentication. I know that Jive support LDAP but does it support Active Directory authentication? Jive does not have explicit support for PAM while there is JPAM through which one can use a lot of PAM authentication including NIS. There is also support FROM Jradius for Jive Messenger.
Since we don’‘t use radius server for our user authentication, I can’‘t use Jradius. First I am thinking of using jive with linux user data base, however I only have limited knowledge of coding. I have to look for the other option. Then I find some thread asking Active Directoy issue (which I thought has better support than Linux’'s Pam because Jive truly support LDAP). We are also planning to migrate to Active directory.
So my request would be:
Could you please tell me where is Jive Heading in terms of Active Directory and Linux’'s PAM?
Where can I read more about Jive and Active Directory?
Does Jive’'s support for LDAP mean that Jive will support Active Directory?
I would really appreciate if someone can answer me before tomorrow(8-10-05) 12:00pm Pacific time because at that time I will be in IT meeting where I plan to talk a bit about how my project on Instant Messaging with Jive is going. I also welcome all suggestions which I cannot bring into the meeting.
