I have an architectural question. I am very new to OpenFire so please forgive me if this is already well known.
Why is OpenFire limited to single, mutually exclusvie sessions from a login account? There are multiple scenarios where allowing multiple instances of a single login account is useful. Using Lync, for example, enables me to be logged in from my work desktop, phone, notebook and home all at the same time. When someone interacts with me it can be access from any of these endpoints at any time.
On the server I see the option to kick off users based on single sessions. Why does it not support an option to permit multiple sessions from a single user account or have some mux merging multiple sessions into one session? Input can come from any/all of the endpoints and output is sent to all of the endpoints.
