I tried searching this and I am either not searching under the correct terms, or this information isn’t spelled out enough for me. Anyone that can just give me an idea of how the IM Gateway is supposed to function would be great. I’ll give you some background on what I am trying to accomplish and maybe someone can give me a simple answer.
I have Openfire installed and my clients are using Spark. I have received a request from one of my clients to communicate with someone who is using AIM. So I installed the IM Gateway and enabled the AIM gateway service from within Openfire.
This is where it all falls apart for me. What do I do with the registration? Am I supposed to input the Spark user who wants to communicate with the AIM user? I tried that and put in some random ID assuming it would auto-generate something for AIM and it says “Invalid screen name or password specified. Please re-register with a valid screen name and password” when I open up Spark.
I know I am just being stupid, but please somebody throw me a bone…
