I want to have an instant message system in my office for educations perposes mostly.
So I am trying OpenFire to learn some things about these services.
After setup OpenFire in a server in my LAN I create in other two computers two accounts with Pidgin as clients.
I create the same accounts in the web interface of OpenFire also.
These two users apears in Buddy List in every Pidgin but they apears as “Not Authorized” witha red signal.
I setup Pidgin’s accounts as below:
In “Basic” tab at Account creation tabs:
Protocol -> XMPP
Screen name -> manolis (just as in “Create new user” menu in OpenFire web interface)
domain -> brazil (just as server name in my LAN)
resource -> Home (as default)
Password -> abcd (just as in “Create new user” menu in OpenFire web interface)
At “Advanced” tab:
Connect Server -> 10.80.194.130 (as the IP address of my LAN server).
Can you help me about this problem ?
The XMPP protocol is the right choice for this use ?
Is there something that I can change it and make this service works fine ?
