Small Business Server 2008 with ms sqlserver. Completed setup with no problms. At the time I did that, I was logged into the box as the admin, and the openfire program was running. Chat clients were able to connect successfully from other computers on the network. I installed and started the openfire service. Now clients cannot connect to the openfire server. The server is running (I can see it in the Services list) and I can access the admin console via a browser. But, whenever I try to connect via a chat client (pidgin), I get the unable to connect error.
Nothing is being generated in the Error log when a client tries unsuccessfully to log in.
And, if I log into the box and start the openfire server program manually, Start\Programs\Openfire\Openfire Server, then clients can log in again.
Any help troubleshooting would be appreciated.
