I have set up Openfire 4.0.3 on a server and it seems to work fine to get messages from one user to another. I am having trouble with presence, however. I want USER01 to be able to determine the presence of USER02, etc., so it seems they should be in one another’s roster. So, using ONLY openfire, I create users USER01, USER02, USER03, etc.
Then, for User01, I add User02 and User03 to its “roster.” So I am confused as to the concept of a “buddy,” as I am using a program to access a user’s roster. it seems that although the users 02, 03 are in the User01’s roster, they are not seen as “buddies” until i add a group called “buddies” and provide subscription to and from the buddies group. Am I doing something wrong?
The reason is that on probing for presence of my “buddies,” I get
Can someone show how, using only Openfire, to set up appropriately users who want to see one another’s presence?
