I am trying to get version 3.9.1 installed for testing with AD domains. I get to the point where I enter the LDAP information, request the “wizard” to test the connection but there is no indication of success or failure. After several checks that the information was entered correctly, I turned on tshark to see what was happening. Openfire does not even try to connect to the AD server. Not even a SYN packet.
The last round of testing I did was (I think) on verison 3.5.X and LDAP worked then.
I installed from the rpm package. Is there something else I need to get LDAP support?
