I set up an OpenFire installation and configured it to use LDAP for authentication. Everything works perfectly!
Afterwards I realised that the LDAP server is using a self-signed certificate and I had forgotten to make it know to OpenFire/Java. So the fact that everything is working smoothly, is actually a bad thing.
I did some research in this forum and found a couple of discussions that indicate that OpenFire wasn't verifying the chain in the past, but started to with release 3.10.2. I'm wondering why this behaviour was changed again -- or am I missing something? -- and how I can activate a proper verification again.
Thank you in advance for your support!
