I deemed this an Openfire Server issue, as opposed to a Spark client issue, because I can replicate it on any machine running Spark.
For some reason my user account cannot be seen by the rest of the people on the server chatting nor do I receive any updates to my client when a new user logs on. I have no problems chatting with people or inviting them to conference rooms, etc. I’‘m just “invisible” to them. I’'ve done a check and nobody else is having this issue.
I’'m running the new Openfire 3.3 with Spark 2.5.2 and I pull my user information from a Novell eDirectory/LDAP repository and my account is set up as an admin.
At this point I’'m just looking for someone to point me in the right direction so I can figure out what the issues are here.
