Are there any special tricks for configuring the Kopete (KDE chat client) to connect to an OpenFire server? I know that I have read that people are doing this sucessfully, but trying to configure my client to connect to a friends OpenFire server, I always receive an authentication error. I use this same copy of Kopete to talk to jabber servers such as Gmail and LiveJournal. I am running Kopete from KDE 3.5.7 .
If SSL is enabled, or disabled, I get an “Login failed for unknown reasons” error. (w/SSL, this happens after accepting the SSL certificate)
The username created for me was ‘leah’ and let’s say the server is ‘mail.example.com’ . When you go to configure kopete and add a new account, selecting Jabber for the protocol, first it wants the username. I have tried ‘firstname.lastname@example.org’ (it will not let me put in just leah). I also had my friend create me an account called ‘email@example.com’ and have tried with that too. Both can connect in using Spark.
I then put in the password, and select the connection tab, and make sure that ‘mail.example.com’ is input for the server. I have tried variations here for other connection settings. The default is “Use protocol encryption” and “Allow plain-text password authentication”. The port is set to 5223 if SSL is turned on. It is 5222 w/o SSL turned on.
Am I missing something here, should I be trying a different port, or are there known issues w/this version of Kopete, or some versions of OpenFire? My friend’s openfire server version is 3.3.3
Thanks so much for your assistance.
