Just a head-up for Pidgin users. The just released 2.4.0 is producing “Not Authorized” messages for anyone trying to log into our server.
Our Openfire 3.4.5 server has JIDs like
firstname.lastname@example.org and so forth.
Here’s where the problem seems to lie. Since Pidgin 2.4.0, it seems to do the SRV lookup and try to log users in as email@example.com
The Openfire debug log shows:
2008.03.02 22:15:47 NIOConnection: startTLS: using c2s
