I am new to openfire and xmpp , so sorry in advance for my dummy question.
I have installed openfire on ubuntu. And created some user accounts.
I am using pidgin as my client and succeded to login with 2 seperate accounts and 2 seperate pidgin instances.
I was able to create a room by one user and join to the same room with the other one. I was able to make those 2 users chat with each other.(using pidgin)
I was able to create a group and share the contact lists with each other (from admin console of openfire) , this way my 2 pidgin clients were able to see and send private messages to each other.
However, i was unable to add a buddy , send an instant message , or even send a friendship request , If i do not create a group, add both users and share contact list info from openfire admin console.
I would like to invite a person and start sending message if that person accepts my request.(Just like MSN).
I am kind of stuck here or missing something. Any help would be great,
