Non plaintext connections not working


I’'ve been trying to connect to Openfire 3.2.2 using PSI and Kopete but I could not make them work without enabling cleartext passwords. They both work fine with the cleartext option enabled.

Here is what I see on the network when the cleartext option is not enabled:


Do you have any ideas about what the problem might be?


I’'ll answer myself in case someone else has the same doubt.

PSI does not suport TLS on port 5222, you have to use the old SSL method on port 5223 and select both SSL and plaintext passwords

This way the password goes in plain text but inside the SSL connection so it’‘s encrypted anyway. A bit confusing but that’'s the way it works.

Psi 0.11 does support TLS

(currently is only an release candidate out)
