Hi there, I have a couple of questions related to Openfire and it’s muti-user chat functionality.
Is it possible to connect to Openfire’s chat rooms with client other than Spark? We’d like to have everyone connect to the Openfire server but not neccessarily restrict them to using the Spark client. Right now I can get Pidgin to connect via XMPP and do one-on-one chats, but I don’t have it using mutli-user chat yet.
After not having any success with option #1, I decided to register our IRC server as a transport for Openfire. However, when using the Spark client, I find that I do get the transport showing up, and the public rooms do show up when I double click on the “IRC conference” in the Conferences tab. However, I am unable to join channels from there. Double clicking on the channel name does nothing. Has anyone else had success with this setup?
I’m using the latest versions of both Openfire and Spark. Thanks!
