Blackberry Messenger / Openfire

Do you know if there is a way to setup Openfire and Blackberry messenger to work together? I was hoping to be able to use my Blackberry messenger to connect with Openfire and see my contacts.

You need an XMPP client on your Blackberry, for example

You should try JiveTalk or IM+ . I’ve heard JiveTalk is really good, but I’ve never used it, I have IM+ and it’s aways worked great for me on my 8700.

Has anyone succesfully used jivetalk to connect to openfire? I’m trying to get it to work and I don’t think I have the right settings. I’m using Blackberry Enterprise Server connecting to a local ip with the default port. The main thing i’m not sure about is the username format, I’m using active directory integration to authenticate and I entered the username as user@domain.local and put the ip address of the openfire server as the server host. when I try to log in the response is connection failed, host=(server ip), port=5222.

I have read this post on earlier occassions too and could not find a solution. Came across another post on the web for PalRingo and it seems to work well. The interface is not that great but works for us.
