Openfire and Apache Directory LDAP

Has anyone used Openfire with Apache’s LDAP server, Apache Directory?

I tried for a couple hours to get a set-up running and was unsuccessful. I tried the following settings with no luck:

here is some LDIF describing my inital structure:

dn: dc=specifyapp,dc=com

objectClass: domain

objectClass: extensibleObject

objectClass: top

dc: specifyapp

dn: ou=users,dc=specifyapp,dc=com

objectClass: organizationalUnit

objectClass: top

ou: users

dn: ou=groups,dc=specifyapp,dc=com

objectClass: organizationalUnit

objectClass: top

ou: groups

dn: uid=specify3,ou=users,dc=specifyapp,dc=com

objectClass: organizationalPerson

objectClass: person

objectClass: extensibleObject

objectClass: uidObject

objectClass: inetOrgPerson

objectClass: top

cn: Max Planck

facsimiletelephonenumber: +1 904 982 6883

givenname: Max

mail: mplanck@example.com

ou: users

roomnumber: 666

sn: Planck

telephonenumber: +1 904 982 6882

uid: specify3

userpassword:: c2VjcmV0

… etc

I am able to log in using the Apache Directory Studio remotely using the name uid=admin,ou=system and a password, so these were the credentials i was giving openfire.

i tried i few things for the base DN such as ou=users,dc=specifyapp,dc=com but nothing worked

i’m very new to LDAP and openfire in general and could use some advice! thanks very much
