Cannot log in even with the most basic of installations

I have downloaded the latest openfire server, ran the basic install options (embedded DB) and setup a basic user ( with a password of “password” (wihout quotes).

Then on a different laptop (Macbook Pro), Im running adium, and I added a new Jabber user, with the details as above, but each time I try to log in I get an authentication error in the INFO logs saying “User Login Failed. PLAIN authentication failed for: me”

This is crazy frustrating, can someone please help me?

(I have double checked server names and password hundreds of times with no luck)


user error

I should not have had a username with the on the end, this just confuses things, keep the username as “me” and the domain as test (which matches the domain of the openfire server) and you are all good to go.
